ADNOC to upgrade its Bab onshore crude oil field (UAE)

15 Nov 2019

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), through its subsidiary ADNOC Onshore, has awarded an AED1.8bn (US$490m) EPC contract to Greek construction company Archirodon to maintain the crude oil production capacity of Bab field at 485,000 bbl/d. The field is located 160 km southwest of Abu Dhabi city (United Arab Emirates).

Archirodon will build supporting facilities and infrastructure (oil-producing wells, water injection wells, artificial lift wells, well-bays, let down stations, water injection clusters...) in 39 months.

In 2017, ADNOC decided to upgrade the production capacity of Bad field from 420,000 bbl/d to 450,000 bbl/d in 2020, signing an agreement with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC)’s subsidiary China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC). ADNOC intends to produce 4 mb/d of oil by the end of 2020 and 5 mb/d by 2030.
