Prior to the award of the FEED contract, Petrofac embarked upon conceptual studies for the development through its specialist Engineering & Consulting Services (ECS) business, it said.

Craig Muir, managing director of ECS, commented, “This FEED complements the substantial engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts that we are engaged in for ADCO and further deepens our relationship with an important customer.

“It is also of strategic significance that we are demonstrating our competitive profile in the Middle East at the early stages of a project’s development,” he added.

According to Petrofac, the conceptual study’s scope of work specifically looks at enhancing aspects of the Bab field for its future development and expansion.

Due for completion in early 2014, both ADCO and Petrofac personnel are working together on the study in an integrated taskforce team from ECS’ UK operating centre, the company added.

An anonymous spokesperson from ADCO said, “Working with Petrofac’s Engineering & Consulting Services team is adding real time value to our development. Additionally, alongside our PMC contractor, we have a dynamic team that is focused on delivering results on time and within budget.”

The Bab project is located in Abu Dhabi’s Thamama production zone, 150km south-west of Abu Dhabi city.
