National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), in consortium with Technip France Abu Dhabi, has been awarded by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO), the contract for the EPC Work of Umm Lulu Full Field Development Project – Package 2 (Process Facilities). Throughout the duration of the contract, NPCC will be the consortium leader and be responsible for the overall delivery of the project.
The contract was awarded with an approximate value of US Dollars 1.69 billion (AED 6.2 billion), at the conclusion of a competitive bidding process in which many international EPC contractors participated.
The contract’s scope of work consists of the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, offshore installation, commissioning and start-up of a large offshore super complex located in the Umm Lulu Field. The complex will comprise six bridge linked platforms including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules. These platforms totaling over 66,000 metric tons will be fabricated at NPCC’s yard in Abu Dhabi.
The platforms will be installed by the floatover method , which allows a high proportion of the hook-up and pre-commissioning work to be completed onshore prior to load-out, and thereby significantly reduces both the duration and cost of the offshore commissioning phase. NPCC has successfully applied this specialized installation technique on several projects.
The project is scheduled to be completed in in the first half of 2018.
This award, one of the largest in the UAE’s offshore industry, re-inforces NPCC’ s leadership in the regional Oil ‘&’ Gas EPC sector and is further testimony of its strong and lasting partnership with ADMA-OPCO. It supplements the recent award made directly to NPCC in the sum of approximately US Dollars 765 Million for the EPC Work of Umm Lulu Full Field Development Project – Package 1, comprising the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation, commissioning and start-up of 6 new Wellhead Towers, 90 km of infield pipelines, 125-km Main Oil Line, 100 km of Fiber Optic Cables and Brownfield Modifications to 2 existing wellhead towers in the Umm Lulu Field.
The Umm Lulu Field is located in the Arabian Gulf, 42 Km from Abu Dhabi, and its development is a strategic initiative of ADNOC and the industrial shareholders of ADMA-OPCO.
