Bids in for Nasr study

12 June 2006
At least five companies submitted technical and commercial bids on 3 June to Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) for the six-month conceptual study and front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract covering the full-field development of the offshore Nasr field. The bidders include the US/Canadian VECO, Paris-based Technip, Tebodin of the Netherlands, the UK's Mott MacDonald and Mustang Engineering of the US (MEED 28:4:06).

The field is planned to be developed in two phases. Under phase 1, called the early production scheme, 22 wellhead towers, pipelines and pumps are planned for installation to achieve a sustainable capacity of 65,000 barrels a day (b/d). For the second phase, 132 wells will be drilled to increase capacity to 100,000 b/d. Adma-Opco plans to invest about $2,000 million in the project.

In late May, technical and commercial bids were submitted to upstream operator Zakum Development Company (Zadco) for the conceptual study/FEED contract covering the Umm al-Lulu oil field. Estimated to be worth $1,000 million-1,500 million, the field development is aimed at producing 100,000 b/d initially. Umm al-Lulu is being developed by Zadco on behalf of Adma-Opco.
