LOS ANGELES, May 28 -- A consortium comprised of GE Oil & Gas (GEOG) and ABB Ltd. won two contracts together worth more than $80 million to supply compressors, electrical systems, and services for Abu Dhabi Co. for Onshore Oil Operations (Adco).

GEOG, part of General Electric Co., said the equipment will be used at the Asab and Sahil fields for new gas lift and gas injection facilities to achieve production targets. The projects will be commissioned in fourth quarter 2012.

GEOG is supplying centrifugal compressors for the gas lift project at Asab and the gas injection project at Sahil, while ABB is supplying the variable speed drive system electrical scope, including motors, transformers, and converters.

Owned 60% by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co and 40% by Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Total SA, BP PLC, ExxonMobil Corp., and Partex, Adco is aiming to increase its production to 1.8 million b/d.

In January, ADCO awarded two engineering, procurement, and construction contracts to upgrade production capacity at the Asab, Sahil, and Shah fields.

Petrofac International Ltd. received a $2.3 billion contract for Asab field, while a $1.2 billion contract for Sahil and Shah fields' expanded development was awarded to Tecnicas Reunidas 60% and Consolidated Contractors Corp. 40% (OGJ Online, Jan. 27, 2009).
