ADNOC takes FID on Ruwais LNG project and awards $5.5b EPC contract


His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed chaired a meeting of the Executive Committee of ADNOC Board of Directors, and commended ADNOC’s recent strategic acquisitions in the US and Mozambique and gave directives to continue focusing on targeted growth locally and internationally.

His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, has chaired a meeting of the Executive Committee of the ADNOC Board of Directors.

During the meeting, His Highness endorsed the final investment decision (FID) for ADNOC’s lower-carbon intensity Ruwais liquefied natural gas (LNG) project and the award of an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for the project valued at approximately $5.5 billion (AED20.2 billion). The project, located in Al Ruwais Industrial City in Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi, will be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to run on clean power, making it one of the world’s lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants.

His Highness noted that the project will reinforce ADNOC’s position as a reliable global natural gas supplier and accelerate the development of Al Ruwais Industrial City by attracting investments and boosting the local industrial ecosystem, ADNOC said in a statement on Wednesday. The project will procure highly specialised equipment and materials and will see 55% of the EPC award value flow back into the UAE’s economy under ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) programme, stimulating economic and industrial growth and skilled private-sector jobs for Emiratis.

During the meeting, His Highness commended ADNOC’s recent strategic acquisitions in major lower-carbon LNG projects in the United States (US) and Mozambique, was briefed on growth projects across ADNOC’s value chain and gave directives to continue focusing on targeted growth both locally and internationally to meet growing energy demand.

His Highness also reviewed ADNOC’s strategy to further integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and technology across its business to generate greater value and deliver smarter, cleaner and safer energy to the world. As part of this strategy, ADNOC is leveraging its portfolio of low carbon energy to power the growth of AI whilst accelerating the integration and deployment of AI solutions across its value chain to unlock further value, lower emissions and keep people safe.

The Ruwais LNG project EPC contract was awarded to a joint venture led by Technip Energies, with JGC Corporation and NMDC Energy. The Ruwais LNG project will consist of two 4.8 mmtpa LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6 mmtpa, more than doubling ADNOC’s existing UAE LNG production capacity to around 15mmtpa, as the company builds its international LNG portfolio. The facility will leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and the latest technologies to enhance safety, minimise emissions and drive efficiency.
