The Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) is considering developing a waste heat recovery plant to produce power and water.

According to sources familiar with the scheme, Takreer is currently assessing the feasibility of the proposed waste heat recovery plant, which would have a power generation capacity of 188MW and water desalination capacity of 14 million imperial gallons a day (MIGD).

The US’ Jacobs has been appointed as a consultant for the project.

State-owned Takreer is a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc).

MEED reported in March that Takreer was planning to upgrade existing units at the Ruwais refinery site in the far west of Abu Dhabi. The work will include modifying existing units in order to process 420,000 barrels a day (b/d) of offshore crude.

The work will include upgrades on units completed in the Ruwais refinery expansion project, which was commissioned in 2015 and which doubled the existing capacity of the site to more than 800,000 b/d.

The new project, named the processing offshore crude project at Ruwais refinery, will allow Abu Dhabi to produce refined products from offshore oil.
