ADNOC has issued an early EPC contract for its LNG project in Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi

A Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) for early engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) activities has been awarded to a joint venture led by Technip Energies, with JGC Corporation and National Petroleum Construction Company PJSC for the project, for which the Final Investment Decision (FID) is expected this year.

The Ruwais LNG project is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa region to run on clean power, making it one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG plants in the world and tying in with ADNOC’s commitment to decarbonisation, sustainability and innovation.

When completed, the project will consist of two 4.8 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6mmtpa and is set to more than double ADNOC’s LNG production capacity, from 6mmtpa to around 15mmtpa.

Fatema Al Nuaimi, executive vice president of downstream Business Management at ADNOC, said, “The Ruwais LNG project will reinforce ADNOC’s position as a reliable global natural gas supplier, underscoring its pivotal role and contribution to global energy security. The project is set to significantly contribute to the Al Dhafra region’s economy by boosting the local industrial ecosystem, attracting further investments and creating a vital energy trade gateway in Al Ruwais Industrial City.”
