Abu Dhabi posted deadlines for Al-Nars Full Field Development tenders

Adma-Opco call for technical bid on Al-Nasr Full Field

2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_ToolAbu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) published the deadlines for the engineering companies to submit their technical offers for the Al-Nasr Full Field Development project offshore Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

As Al-Nasr Full Field Development project, Adma-Opco intents to proceed to the second phase of the Al-Nasr project currently under completion.

After pre-qualification round on second quarter this year, Adma-Opco has invited the selected engineering companies to tender on the main packages for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts of the Al-Nasr Phase-2 project.

Adma-Opco_Al-Nasr-Full-Field-Development_mapSince 1950s, Adma-Opco operates as a joint venture between:

 – Abu Dhabi National Company (ADNOC) with 60% as operator

 – BP 14 2/3%

 – Total 13 1/3%

 – JODCO 12%

Al-Nasr Phase-2 is part of the projects identified by Abu Dhabi to increase the crude oil production of the UAE.

In 2011, the OPEC set the targets for 2018 in order to ensure all the crude oil producing countries members of the OPEC to weight at least 40% of the global production.

In this perspective, ADNOC is planning to produce 3.5 million barrels per day (b/d) by 2018 out of which Adma-Opco is expected to contribute for half of it at 1.75 million b/d of crude oil.

Located 30 kilometers northeast of the Umm Shaif field, the Al-Nasr oil and gas field stands along the UAE territorial water of the Persian-Arabic Gulf.

When Technip completed the pre front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) of Al-Nasr, Adma-Opco decided to ramp up the production by 100,000 addition b/d of crude oil in two phases because of the complexity of the field.

Al-Nasr Phase-1 was called Early  Production Scheme and was awarded in 2011 to Larsen & Toubro with the goal to produce 25,000 b/d by 2015. 

Al-Nasr Phase-2 has been named Full Field Development as to bring additional 65,000 b/d up to speed in production in 2018.

Adma-Opco split Al-Nasr-2 in two main EPC packages

Because of the size of the project with 7 platforms and 210 kilometers pipelines, Al-Nasr Full Field Development has been divided in two main EPC packages.

The package-1 is concentrating all the pipelines and related facilities:

 – Oil and water trunkline

 – Infield subsea pipeline

 – Export pipelines to Das Island

With an estimated value of $500 capital expenditure, Al-Nasr Phase-2 Package-1 is attracting competition from:

Adma-Opco_Umm-Shaif_Abu-Dhabi – McDermott from USA

 – NPCC from Abu Dhabi

 – Petrofac from UK

 – Saipem from Italy

 – Samsung Engineering from South Korea

These bidders must return their technical offers for the Package-1 by December 17th 2013.

Al-Nasr Package-2 concentrates production facilities  

The Package-2 refers to the production and processing units with:

 – Wellhead platforms

Adma-Opco_Full-Field-Development – Crude oil pumping units

 – Oil separation units

 – Gas lift dehydration and compression

 – Multiphases metering systems

 – Flaring system

 – Water treatment unit

 – Power generation facilities

 – Utilities and offsites platform

 – Living quarter platform

To cost around $1 billion capital expenditure, Al-Nasr Phase-2 Package-1 should see technical offers before December 24th 2013 from:

 – Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) from South Korea

 – Fluor and McDermott from USA

 – Hyundai Engineering and Construction from South Korea

 – Saipem from Italy

 – Samsung Engineering from South Korea

After the submission of technical bids, Adma-Opco  and AMEC will released the call for commercial tender on the two main packages of the Al-Nasr Full Field Development project on first half 2014.
