Offshore engineering service provider TechnipFMC has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) for a sulfate reduction plant on West Island located offshore Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The objective of the project is the installation of a sulfate reduction plant module (SRP) along with new installations and tie-in to existing facilities in West Island. The SRP module incorporates cutting edge water treatment technologies with advanced filtration and nano-filtration systems. These systems are used for water injection into Upper Zakum western areas reservoir tight structure, which requires high quality water with less sulfate content and particle size.
“We are extremely proud of this award which demonstrates our long standing commitment to ADNOC as well as our sustainable development strategy in line with the UAE vision to maximize national content. This EPC award is one of the strategic “early engagement” achievement, following the successful completion by TechnipFMC of the Concept and FEED studies for the full UZFD* project, including the SRP,” said Nello Uccelletti, president of TechnipFMC’s onshore/offshore business.
This week, TechnipFMC also secured an offshore engineering contract from ExxonMobil for the proposed Liza deep water project offshore Guyana.
