NPCC takes ULG contract

29 November 2002

Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) announced on 24 November the award of a contract to the local National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) to install new facilities at Umm al-Nar for its second-phase unleaded gasoline (ULG) and low sulphur gas-oil (LSGO) project.

Estimated to be worth AED 60 million-

70 million ($16 million-19 million), the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract calls for the expansion of tank farms, installation of a new ULG blending unit and integration with the existing blender, upgrading a substation and offsite facilities and modifications to the piping network. The 28-month contract will be carried out on a lump sum turnkey (LSTK) basis.

The US' Bechtel carried out the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the proposed new facilities.

The first phase of Takreer's ULG/LSGO programme involves the construction of a grassroots facility at Ruwais. In late June the Italian office of Paris-based Technip-Coflexip was awarded the estimated $480 million EPC contract for the facilities. The 81,000-barrel-a-day ULG and LSGO facilities will take 36 months to complete. The US' Parsons International is the project management consultant (MEED 26:7:02; 5:7:02).

The local Granite Construction Company is carrying out the earthworks package at Ruwais under an estimated AED 11 million ($3 million) subcontract recently placed by Technip-Coflexip.
