Expansion Project of the IGD Package 1 - Das Island

Country: United Arab Emirates

Client: Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company Ltd. (ADGAS)

Company in charge: Tecnimont

The project is part of the "Integrated Gas Development Expansion Project", that will transfer additional gas from Umm Shaif gas field to Habshan through Das Island, in order to increase the onshore sales gas supply. The contract relating to Package 1 includes EPC activities (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction), up to Performance Tests for the expansion of the existing facility on the island. Tecnimont’s scope consists mainly of the expansion of the existing Gas Dehydration Plant with one additional unit and the related facilities.

Modular Approach: The insular Plant location has made the project challenging in terms of engineering, transportation and construction, consequently leading construction strategy to erect the plant module-wise. A modularized approach was never adopted by Tecnimont in previous projects and accordingly, engineering & construction have been adjusted to match specific requirements of this new way of managing projects. Modules were erected in a Yard located at Ras Al Khaimah UAE and then transported by barge on Das Island for final installation. At the same time on site, on Das Island, all the activities to install the modules, piles, foundation, U/G, trenches, cable pulling etc., were on going. Two operating construction sites have worked simultaneously with excellent results.
