Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has awarded a $489-million engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to Greek firm Archirodon Construction Overseas in a project that will sustain long-term crude oil production of 485,000 B/D from the giant onshore Giant Bab Field, 160 km southwest of Abu Dhabi city. The scope of the upgrade project includes development of producing wells, water injection wells, artificial lift wells, well-bays, let-down stations, water injection clusters, and other infrastructure. The contract has a term of 39 months. Expansion of the Bab field— ADNOC’s first field producing Murban grade crude—comes 2 years after ADNOC Onshore awarded a contract to increase its capacity to 450,000 B/D of oil from 420,000 B/D by 2020. ADNOC said the new contract builds on that progress.
