ADNOC Invests $946 Million for Umm Shaif Development
Mikaila Adams of Oil & Gas Journal.
Umm Shaif field is in the Arabian Gulf about 85 miles northwest of Abu Dhabi. It produces both crude oil and natural gas.
The Long-Term Development Plan – Phase 1 (LTDP-1) EPC contract was awarded by ADNOC Offshore to National Petroleum Construction Co. (NPCC). The scope of the award covers engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, and commissioning activities required to maintain the offshore field’s 275,000 b/d crude oil production capacity, increase efficiencies, and enhance the field’s long-term potential, ADNOC said in a release Jan. 5.
The EPC contract, which is due to be completed in 2025, comprises two packages for network expansion and new well-head towers. The first package includes modifications and extension of existing infrastructure with installation of new subsea cables and pipelines for debottlenecking. The second package includes the design of three lean well-head towers with associated new pipelines.
The contract incorporates rigless electrical submersible pumps and other digital field technologies.
Abu Dhabi targets self-sufficiency in natural gas and expansion of oil-production capacity to 5 million b/d by 2030 under an expanded budget approved in 2018 by the Supreme Petroleum Council.
