ADNOC awards an AED2b contract for Lower Zakum field gas line

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (“ADNOC”) has awarded a AED2.01 billion (USD548 million) contract to build a new main gas line at its Lower Zakum field offshore of Abu Dhabi.  

The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract was awarded by Adnoc Offshore to National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) after a competitive tender process. 

The award will increase the Lower Zakum field’s gas production capacity thus supporting Adnoc’s plans to enable gas self-sufficiency for the UAE and cater to increasing global energy demand. The project is scheduled for completion in 2025. 

Adnoc’s legal team is led by Chief Legal Counsel Salem Mohammed Al Darei (pictured).
