Dhabi Nortech, a joint venture between Nortech Group and Dhabi Contracting, has secured its second significant project in Abu Dhabi, less than five months after the venture was launched.
The partnership has won a contract from Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (GASCO) for project management, engineering and design along with front end engineering design (FEED) services to support the prestigious Ruwais Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) complex in Abu Dhabi.
Specifically, Dhabi Nortech will provide its specialist services for the replacement of the Liquid Sulphur Loading Arm & Electric Heat Tracing (EHT) System.
Once operational, the Ruwais complex will have a capacity of 900 mmscfd of Natural Gas, 12,000t/d of NGL and 5,000t/d of Liquid Sulphur.
The awarding of this project follows on from the joint venture securing its inaugural contract in the Middle East in the summer, an upgrade to a flare system at one of GASCO’s major onshore gas processing facilities.
Securing this latest project provides Dhabi Nortech with the platform for significant growth in the Middle East.
Nortech Group managing director Bryan Bunn said: “We are extremely honoured to continue our relationship with GASCO with the awarding of this contract for its prestigious Ruwais project.
“Securing a second significant contract from GASCO so early in the development of Dhabi Nortech is a clear endorsement of the skills and expertise we are bringing to the Middle East market.
“It will help take the business forward and deliver growth in this vibrant, but competitive market.”
Sami Edwards, general manager for Dhabi Contracting, added: “The progress our partnership with Nortech is achieving within its first year of operation is very impressive and highlights the benefits of collaborative working.
“Bringing together our specialisms into a combined venture is enabling us to access new opportunities and offer integrated solutions, which meet the challenges of the Middle East energy market.”
