Penspen wins trans-emirates pipeline work

08 June 2008

The UK’s Penspen has won a contract to carry out detailed engineering on the Abu Dhabi Crude Oil Pipeline (Adcop) aimed at transporting crude from Abu Dhabi to Fujairah on the federation’s east coast.

The contract was awarded by China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC), the engineering, procurement and construction contractor on the project.

The 370-kilometre, 48-inch diameter Adcop scheme will have a capacity of up to 1.5 million barrels a day. It also includes a new 1 million-barrel main oil terminal at Fujairah and three single point mooring buoys for deepwater tanking loading.

The pipeline will provide the first direct outlet for Abu Dhabi crude outside the Gulf, bypassing the Strait of Hormuz (MEED 7:9:07).

Australia’s WorleyParsons is the project management consultant on the scheme. Abu Dhabi government owned International Petroleum Investment Company (Ipic) is the client.
