ADNOC issues drilling contracts for Hail/Ghasha sour gas project
ADNOC has awarded ADNOC Drilling two contracts for the Hail and Ghasha development offshore Abu Dhabi.
One, valued at $1.3 billion, covers supply of integrated drilling services and fluids, while the other, at $711 million (AED 2.6 billion), is for four island drilling units.
In addition, ADNOC issued a $681 million (AED 2.5 billion) contract to ADNOC Logistics & Services for related offshore logistics and marine support services.
All three awards for the Hail/Ghasha drilling campaign will run for a period of up to 10 years.
The project is part of the Ghasha concession offshore sour gas development, a key component of ADNOC’s integrated gas master plan, which includes gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.
Production from the concession should start around 2025, exceeding 1.5 Bcf/d of natural gas before the end of the decade. To date, four artificial islands have been completed, and development drilling is underway.
Last November, ADNOC and its partners awarded two EPC contracts for the Dalma gas development within the same concession and another contract to update the FEED for the Hail and Ghasha project.
The updated design should be completed by the end of this year and should optimize costs and timing, potentially also speeding up integration of carbon capture.
