26 August 2010

Power equipment will be installed at Abu Dhabi’s Asab gas project

UK-based energy company Petrofac has selected Switzerland’s ABB to provide power equipment for the Asab Full Field Development project in Abu Dhabi.

Led by the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (Adco), the Asab development is one of the largest upstream projects in the region.

Petrofac is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the project. ABB’s contract is worth $24m.

ABB will design and supply a host of power equipment, including air-insulated medium-voltage switchgear and power transformers.

The delivery also includes a substation monitoring and control system and integrated motor control system, which covers nine substations and one central control building.

Asab, along with units at Bab, Bu Hasa and Ruwais, is part of a $1bn programme to increase production, processing and distribution capacity at the fields by 140 million cubic feet a day.
