Dutch company Tebodin wins work on Abu Dhabi refineries, Umm Shaif field and distribution terminals

Netherlands-based engineering group Tebodin has won four contracts on early-stage oil and gas projects in the UAE, according to an industry source familiar with the deals.

The firm has won a front-end engineering and design (feed) contract from state-owned Abu Dhabi Refining Company (Takreer) for the routing of safety valve discharges at the Ruwais and Abu Dhabi refineries.

The contract, which is expected to take 15,000 man hours and last for eight months, was started by Tebodin in December 2013.

The scope of the project covers routing the release valve discharges at the refineries’ propane, butane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) storage facilities to an elevated flare system.

Tebodin has also been award two consultancy contracts for Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s (Adnoc) marketing arm, Adnoc Distribution.

The first contract is on the design, detailed engineering and tender packages preparation services for the first stage of installing vapour recovery systems at various distribution terminals in the UAE.

The 9,500-man-hours deal is expected to take six months and be completed in June or July 2014.

Adnoc terminals to receive new vapour recovery systems include: Al-Ain multi-products terminal; Madinat Zayed depot; Ruwais depot; Ras al-Khaimah multi-products terminal; and potentially a terminal in Sharjah.

Tebodin is also the consultant on a similar project on the first and second stages of installing vapour recovery systems at 139 services stations across all UAE emirates with the exception of Dubai.

A fourth contract sees Tebodin providing a feasibility study for Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) on facilities at its offshore Umm Shaif field.

The contract will last for eight to nine months requiring 16,000 man hours.

The work requires Tebodin to “perform an in-depth analysis of flare system at gas distribution station ‘N’ and prepare a complete feasibility report with recommendations for upgrading existing facility to meet current and future operational requirements of station ‘N’”.

Tebodin will provide detailed technical work, elements covering project cost and estimation of recommended options, which can be directly taken for FEED.

In December, MEED revealed Tebodin had won early-stage contracts on gas projects in Abu Dhabi and Fujairah.

Tebodin, headquartered in The Hague, is owned by German engineering and construction group Bilfinger.
