ADNOC Gas Plc has reportedly awarded major contracts for a combined value of USD 1.34 billion to Petrofac Emirates LLC and a consortium made up of National Petroleum Construction Co. PJSC and C.A.T International Limited. As per the Sales Gas Pipeline Network Enhancement (ESTIDAMA) initiative, these contracts are aimed towards assisting ADNOC Gas’ natural gas pipeline network growth. The company is aiming to revolutionize the distribution of natural gas in the Northern Emirates of the United Arab Emirates with an ambitious expansion plan, increasing its pipeline network by approximately 300 km from over 3,200 km to over 3,500 km. Mr. Ahmed Mohamed Alebri, CEO of ADNOC Gas, said that by enhancing industrial access to natural gas the expanded pipeline will foster further growth for ADNOC Gas and its shareholders. This initiative aligns with their commitment to achieving gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.
Through ADNOC’s integrated master plan, the entire gas value chain of the UAE is connected, which provides a cost-effective and sustainable natural gas supply to fulfill domestic and global demand. Following ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) initiative, more than 70 percent of contract value will be reinvested in the UAE economy. The first part of the ESTIDAMA initiative, comprising several phases, entailed modifying current pipelines and was successfully finished in 2023. Construction of additional pipelines and a gas compression facility in Habshan are part of the second and third stages, which are now under way. These projects will provide crucial infrastructure for supplying feed gas to important clients across the Emirates.
