Installation of NGL Pipeline Pumps and Allied Works at Asab-0

By ,

The purpose of the project was to replace existing NGL pipeline pumps with new ones of bigger capacity to cater for increased production and to carry out debottlenecking of the existing plant to facilitate the operation of the new pumps.
The scope included construction of pump sheds to accommodate new NGL pumps and VSD motors; a new substation building with 11kV and LV power system for operation and control of the new facilities; piping fabrication installation and testing; modification of existing electrical panels and DCS system; executing tie in works under a major shutdown to integrate the new facilities with the existing plant; removing the old pumps and demolishing existing facilities after successful operation of new installations.

Ruwais 4th NGL

By Subhi Kussad,

The gas is then further processed in existing facilities and new facilities at Habshan 5 for optimum lean gas production. This gas header NGL is sent to GASCO facilities at Ruwais for further fractionation.

Additional capacity was provided for future expansion for the associated gases from onshore oil production increasing from the 1.4 to 1.8 MMBOPD.  As part of the Integrated Gas Development Project (IGD) in Abu Dhabi, additional process facilities are planned in Ruwais Industrial Complex by GASCO.

A new fourth NGL Train at Ruwais was installed under this project to process a portion of the NGL products from AGD -0, BAB, Bu Hasa and Habshan (excluding OGD-III). The Train 4  processing scheme is nearly identical to Train 3. The fourth NGL fractionation plant produces four products: raw ethane, propane, butane and paraffinic naphta hydrocarbons, and liquid sulphur. The capacity of Train 4 is approximately 27,000 TPD of NGL/LPG. A new 30 PD sulphur recovery unit was installed to handle acid gas flows from Train 4 and acid gas from Trains 1, 2 or 3 and vice versa to meet ADNOC’s environmental policy.

The project included main processing plant fractionation refrigeration, mole sieves treating, DEO treating, sulphur recovery unit and storage area (excluding tanks).

Shuweihat S1 Independent Power and Desalination Plant

By Subhi Kussad,

The plant consists of five Siemens v94.3A gas turbines, two 251 MW steam turbines, seven electrical generators and all the ancillary systems. It is linked to a seawater desalination facility which is supplied with steam from the turbines.

This project was an Independent Water and Power Project commissioned on a Build Operate transfer (BOT) basis.

Taweelah A2 Power Plant

By Subhi Kussad,

This project was unique in nature since it was the first Build Operate Transfer (BOT) project in the UAE and was executed on a fast track basis due to the commitment made by Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority to increase power output by May 2000.

This project is now the benchmark for Independent Power and Water Projects (IWPP) projects in the Gulf.

The scope of works included civil works for the covered and cladded power island (gas & steam turbine building), transformers, boilers, heat recovery steam generators, control building, liquid fuel tank and other related structures.

Umm al Nar Independent Water and Power Plant, Abu Dhabi

By Subhi Kussad,

The IWPP involved Arabian Power decommissioning the existing 850MW of generating capacity at the site and installing 1550MW of new build to be constructed by Toshiba and based on Frame 9 gas turbines from the US’ General Electric Power Systems (GE). In addition, 25 million gallons a day (g/d) of new multi-stage flash (MSF) capacity was added by Japan’s Hitachi Zosen Corporation to the plant’s 70 million g/d of recently installed capacity
