By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 4
-- Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Co. (ADMA-OPCO) has completed the first phase of an offshore pipeline in the Integrated Gas Development of its parent company, Abu Dhabi National Oil Co., according to press reports.

The 38-km pipeline will be able to carry 1 bscfd of natural gas from giant Umm Shaif oil field to Das Island for handling by another ADNOC operating company, Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Ltd.

From Das, gas will move 212 km to an Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd. (GASCO) gas processing complex at Habshan. There, GASCO is building a plant, Habshan 5, with capacity to process 2.15 bscfd of gas. In addition to the feed from Umm Shaif field via Das, Habshan 5 will process associated gas from onshore oil fields undergoing expansion and sour nonassociated gas from Habshan fields.

Main units of the Habshan 5 plant will be two trains for feed-gas compression, one train for condensate stabilization, four trains for gas sweetening and dehydration, two rich-gas NGL recovery trains, and four sulfur-recovery units.

The plant is designed to produce 750 MMscfd of sales gas, 12,000 tonnes/day of NGL, and 5,200 tonnes/day of sulfur.

The offshore part of the project includes production of an additional 1 bscfd of gas for injection at Umm Shaif (OGJ Online, Oct. 1, 2009). The full project is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2013.
