Adnoc plans to boost Das Island LNG capacity by 0.9 mtpa

Adnoc Gas, the gas and LNG unit of UAE’s energy giant Adnoc, plans to add about 0.9 mtpa of production capacity at its Das Island liquefaction plant by debottlenecking the terminal’s three liquefaction trains.

The liquefaction and export terminal on Das Island in the Persian Gulf currently has a capacity of 6 million tons per annum (mtpa).

Adnoc owns a 70 percent stake in the operator of the facility, Adnoc LNG, while Mitsui holds 15 percent, BP owns 10 percent, and TotalEnergies holds 5 percent.

The facility started exporting LNG back in 1977.

State-owned Adnoc launched Adnoc Gas on January 1 as it looks to further expand its international presence.

Adnoc Gas recently signed a deal to supply LNG to Jera Global Markets, a joint venture between majority shareholderJera and EDF, and it  also signed a deal with a unit of state-owned PetroChina.

The total value of LNG supply agreements signed by Adnoc Gas since its listing in March this year is between $9.4 billion and $12 billion, the firm previously said.

Adnoc Gas revealed in its third-quarter report that it plans to boost production capacity at the Das Island plant by 0.9 mtpa.

The firm slightly increased the planned capacity boost as it said in the first-quarter report that it expects to add 0.8 mtpa of capacity.

According to Adnoc Gas, the “LNG 2.0” project includes electrification of LNG trains to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, debottlenecking LNG trains, and ethane extraction and export.

Besides 0.9 mtpa of LNG, it will add 1.2 mtpa of ethane and 1.1 mtpa of C3+, it said.

Adnoc Gas expects to complete the project in 2028.

This is the case with its second LNG terminal in Al Ruwais as well.

Adnoc recently said it is “advancing towards” a final investment decision to build the LNG terminal.

Earlier this year, Adnoc announced it will build its second LNG terminal in Al Ruwais. The firm previously planned to construct the facility in Fujairah.

Adnoc Gas recently also awarded US energy services firm Baker Hughes a contract for the planned LNG export terminal.

Located in Al Ruwais Industrial City, the project features two 4.8 mtpa LNG trains operating on renewable and nuclear energy, which will make it the MENA region’s first LNG project to be powered by “clean energy”, according to Adnoc.
