New maxi-international contract for the Italian Saipem, a few days after having signed one worth 1.3 billion dollars in Brazil: this time it happens in Abu Dhabi and concerns a 510 million order.
The contract provides for the expansion and enhancement of the Shah gas plant already active. It includes the engineering, supply of materials, construction and commissioning of add-on modules designed to increase the plant’s daily gas treatment capacity by 13%, from current production capacity of 1.28 to 1.45 billions of standard cubic feet per day, for an overall increase of 145% compared to the plant capacity foreseen by the original project.
The Shah Gas plant is the largest in the world for the treatment of acid gas which, due to its high sulfur content, requires special technologies to ensure safety and respect for the environment. The technologies used will also ensure continuity of production, even during maintenance, minimizing downtime.
Saipem has a consolidated presence in the United Arab Emirates, where it has already built many plants, including the design and construction of the gas treatment units for the original Shah building.
Maurizio Coratella, Chief Operating Officer of Saipem’s Onshore E&C Division “The award of this new project by a key customer such as ADNOC strengthens Saipem’s long-standing presence in the United Arab Emirates and constitutes a further attestation of esteem towards our ability to carry out technologically complex projects in accordance with the highest standards of safety and respect for the environment. We are pleased to contribute to the strengthening of this important plant for the country ”.
