Liwa Strategic Water Storage and Recovery System

By Subhi Kussad,

The objective of the project is to infiltrate and store 27 million cubic metres of desalinated water in natural underground aquifers to form a strategic reserve that can be recovered and used in emergency conditions.

ACC’s role in the project included design, supply, construction and commissioning of 200 water wells, 160 km of interconnecting piping and transfer pipeline (48″ and 36″ diameter), five pumping stations, MV and LV substations, 500 km of electrical and instrumentation cables with DCS and SCADA control systems.

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).
