Penspen wins consultancy contract by ADMA-OPCO in UAE

MichaelSimmPenspen, global provider of engineering and management services, has been appointed as project management consultant to Abu Dhabi Marine Operation Company (ADMA-OPCO) for an ongoing work at Das Island in the UAE

The four key areas where Penspen will advise and lead include the upgrade or replacement of various pipeline networks; studies to be conducted on an oil spill response hub, to serve Das Island and offshore; a major overhaul of crude oil storage tanks; and installation of three COL pumps and associated modification.

The project management consultancy contract, which went live in January 2016, will run for four years and Penspen’s team of 10 will be responsible for the management and administration of the respective project activities on behalf of ADMA-OPCO.

Michael Simm, executive vice-president Middle East & Asia Pacific at Penspen, said, “This is a great win for us as we are currently seeing good levels of growth in our offshore business. We have worked extensively with ADMA on a number of key projects and we look forward to continuing the partnership with this varied and interesting set of developments on Das Island.”

Das Island is the main industrial centre of offshore oil and gas production for ADMA-OPCO, where oil and gas produced from the Umm Shaif and Zakum fields is processed, stored and exported. As a result of its strategic location, lying in the centre of the Arabian Gulf, approximately 165km north-west of Abu Dhabi, it is currently the region’s main oil storage site.

Das Island is also the export terminal for oil from the offshore fields of ADMA-OPCO, and for LNG produced by the Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (ADGAS), both part of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) Group.
