ADNOC Gas PLC awarded contracts to Petrofac Emirates LLC and a consortium of National Petroleum Construction Co. PJSC and CAT International Ltd. for a roughly 300-km expansion of its natural gas pipeline network. The sales gas pipeline network enhancement program (ESTIDAMA) will increase ADNOC Gas’s existing pipeline network to more than 3,500 km, boosting volumes delivered to northern portions of the UAE.
ESTIDAMA consists of several packages, the first of which was awarded in 2021 and completed this year for early modification works on existing pipelines. The second and third packages, being awarded now, include construction of the new pipelines and a previously awarded gas compression plant in Habshan (OGJ Online, June 30, 2023).
The pipeline program’s cost is an estimated $1.34 billion.
