LONDON – Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Co. (ADMA-OPCO) has awarded Petrofac a $500-million engineer, procure, install, and commission contract for the offshore Satah Al Razboot (SARB) Package 3 project.

Work is expected to start soon and should be completed by April 2016. 

SARB is a new field development off the northwest coast of Abu Dhabi. Drilling will be performed from two artificial islands (SARB1 and SARB2) with the well fluids sent by subsea pipeline to a facility on Zirku Island for processing, storage, and export.

Petrofac will supply 200 km (124 mi) of subsea pipelines for well fluid, water injection, gas injection, flare, and export; 3 km (1.8 mi) of onshore pipeline; and 55 km (34 mi) of subsea power and communication cables.

Additionally it will provide two riser platforms and four flare platforms with four interconnecting bridges and one single-point mooring buoy to be located north of Zirku Island.

Onshore scope includes provision of drilling utilities, foundations for SARB1 and SARB2, transport, installation, hook up, and assistance in commissioning of the accommodation modules.
