Adnoc says to build new LNG terminal in Ruwais

UAE’s energy giant Adnoc said on Tuesday it will build its second LNG terminal in Al Ruwais. The firm previously planned to construct the facility in Fujairah.

“As part of the design phase, Adnoc announced today that its world class low-carbon LNG growth project will move forward in the Al Ruwais Industrial City, Al Dhafrah, Abu Dhabi,” the firm said in a statement.

As an operational hub for Adnoc and its operating companies, the selected location offers “significant synergies and existing infrastructure that will be leveraged to deliver project efficiencies, unlocking additional value for Adnoc, its partners, and the UAE,” it said.

Following a comprehensive evaluation of location options during the ongoing design phase, the proximity of Al Ruwais to Adnoc’s current operations, as well as its future growth projects, in addition to a well-established local supplier base were important considerations in the company’s decision, Adnoc said.

Electric LNG plant

Last year, Adnoc appointed Houston-based McDermott as the design contractor for its planned LNG export plant in Fujairah.

Following completion of the design stage, Adnoc expects to award an EPC contract in 2023, it previously said.

According to Adnoc, the LNG terminal will have two 4.8 mtpa LNG trains, boosting the company’s LNG production capacity by 9.6 mtpa, as it looks to respond to the growing global demand for natural gas.

The plant will feature electric-powered processing facilities.

It will run on renewable and nuclear grid power making it one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG facilities in the world, Adnoc claims.

This the company second LNG plant as Adnoc owns a 70 percent stake in Adnoc LNG, that currently produces about 6 mtpa of LNG from its facilities on Das Island.

The firm also recently launched its new gas and LNG unit, Adnoc Gas.

Adnoc Gas announced on Monday an LNG supply deal worth up to $1.2 billion with France’s TotalEnergies.
