ADNOC signs agreements worth almost US$1bn for project services

Framework Agreement Infographic ENGADNOC has signed framework agreements valued at around US$1bn for Concept and Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) services relating to major projects across its full value chain to support the delivery of its 2030 strategy

The framework agreements were signed with AMEC International Ltd (part of the Wood Group), Fluor, McDermott, Mott MacDonald, SNC-Lavalin International Arabia Limited – Abu Dhabi (part of the Kentech Group), Technip Energies, Worley, and a joint venture between Tecnicas Reunidas and NPCC. The agreements will run for five years, with an option for a two-year extension. The eight contractors have committed to set up and run enhanced training programmes to further develop local expertise and enable knowledge transfer. The agreements have a combined scope worth up to US$1bn (AED 3.67bn) and the potential for 50% of the value to flow back into the UAE economy under ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) programme, over the agreement term between 2021 and 2026. The scope of the agreements is based on the forecasted requirement for external project engineering services across the ADNOC Group. 

Abdulmunim Saif Al Kindy, ADNOC People, technology and corporate support executive director, said, “We are very pleased to engage with the eight top-tier engineering contractors awarded to provide best-in-class engineering expertise on our strategic projects across our full value chain. These framework agreements follow a very competitive tender process and the smart nature of the deals will deliver substantial cost savings, optimise project delivery schedules and provide ADNOC with increased flexibility to drive its growth targets and proactively respond to the demands of the fast-evolving energy landscape. In addition, the agreements offer the potential to create additional skilled employment opportunities for Emiratis and include commitments that contracted services will primarily be carried out in the UAE, ensuring more economic value remains in the country from our contract awards.”

As an integral part of its 2030 strategy, ADNOC is optimising its procurement strategy to reflect market dynamics, focusing on long-term contracts with a reduced number of suppliers that provide stable and reliable delivery at highly competitive rates.
