Another larger contract was awarded for the Lulu EPC-2 engineering, procurement and construction package, which will mainly covers central processing facilities involving six platforms.

Adma-Opco is also currently carrying out the full-field Lulu development along with the Satah al-Razboot Field for an eventual combined capacity of 200,000 bpd as part of Abu Dhabi’s ongoing multi-billion dollar investment drive to increase its overall production capacity.
