Contracts let for Nasr work off Abu Dhabi

Work is beginning on a platform complex in the second phase of development of Nasr oil field off Abu Dhabi.

The project will boost production to 65,000 b/d from 22,000 b/d now in progress under an early development system. Nasr crude flows to Das Island.

State-owned Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Co. (ADMA-OPCO) issued a letter of award early in July to Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. for a $1.94-billion order to build the fixed platforms and lay subsea cables.

HHI will perform engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning for the complex, which will include gas treatment, separation, and accommodation platforms. It also will lay 144-km subsea power and 55-km infield cables and modify an existing manifold tower and two wellhead towers.

The work is to be completed by second-half 2019.

HHI issued a letter of award to KBR Inc. for engineering design and support services for the project.
