Adnoc Review 2017

Takreer set to expand

The Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer), an Adnoc Group company, announced the awarding of two major contracts for its Gasoline and Aromatics Project (GAP), which will significantly increase its gasoline production capacity.

As part of Adnoc’s growth strategy, Takreer plans to expand production of gasoline to 9.4 million tonnes per annum (mtpy), by 2022, to maintain Abu Dhabi’s self-sufficiency, with the new gasoline and aromatics project adding 4.2 mtpy of gasoline supply and 1.6 mtpy of aromatics, an Adnoc statement says.

The front-end engineering design (Feed) contract has been awarded to Amec International, based in Reading, UK. In addition, Takreer has awarded a contract for process licence technologies to Axens of France.

Abdulaziz Alhajri, Adnoc’s refining and petrochemical director, says: "Our goal is to unlock the full potential of our assets. The Gasoline and Aromatics Project will enable us to meet the needs of the evolving and expanding market for refined products, as well as add value to each barrel processed."

The new contracts follow the appointment of Jacobs Engineering, in June, to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for the Feed phase.
