SNC wins BeAAT waste contract

31 October 2003
Canada's SNC Lavalin has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build the central environment protection facility (BeAAT) at Ruwais. The contract, worth $47.4 million, has been placed by Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) and is SNC's second from an Abu Dhabi oil company in the space of a month (MEED 3:10:03).

The 30-month BeAAT contract involves the construction of a series of waste treatment facilities, ranging from landfills and a solidification unit to an incinerator and a centrifugation unit. The Ruwais plant will treat and dispose of hazardous waste produced by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and its subsidiaries.

SNC was awarded a second contract in early October by ADNOC to undertake an eight-month engineering and design study to determine the most suitable method of recovering carbon dioxide (CO2) from boilers and steam reformers. The recovered CO2 will be used for reinjection into the Thamama B reservoir in the Bab field to enhance oil recovery.

The scope of works includes: the collection of CO2 from steam reformers and boilers at the Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) refinery at Ruwais and the Ruwais Fertiliser Industries (Fertil) complex; construction of facilities for the compression of CO2; supply; installation of a 100-120-kilometre pipeline from Ruwais to Habshan for the transportation of recovered gas; and the reinjection of CO2 into the oil reservoir (MEED 1:11:02).
