MAIRE has announced that NextChem Tech will act as technology design integrator to develop the process design package (PDP) for the hydrogen and carbon dioxide recovery unit of the Hail and Ghasha gas development project.

The Hail and Ghasha project, a package of which was awarded to Tecnimont (MAIRE’s Integrated E&C Solutions) by ADNOC in October 2023 for an overall value of US$8.7 billion, is one of the most strategic initiatives globally to decarbonise the energy processing industry. The project is aimed to operate with net zero CO2 emissions, also thanks to the recovery units to be developed by NextChem Tech which will allow the capture and storage of 1.5 million tpy of CO2, contributing to ADNOC’s commitment to decarbonising its operations.

NextChem Tech's scope of work encompasses the PDP for the raw gas compression station, the dehydration and separation unit, the CO2 compression station and other associated facilities based on quality technologies and solutions.

Leveraging on its decarbonisation expertise and capabilities, NextChem Tech will also support Tecnimont in supplying certain critical equipment and developing the detailed engineering design for the hydrogen and CO2 recovery section. The overall value of the contract is approximately US$60 million.

Alessandro Bernini, CEO of MAIRE, commented: “This project proves the strength of the group's integrated approach, and how we can support customers on a broad spectrum of decarbonisation solutions. With its unique and distinctive competences, NEXTCHEM will integrate with Tecnimont working on one of the most innovative projects globally. In addition, we are offering and implementing innovative solutions aimed at reducing emissions and optimising energy consumption, allowing a significant efficiency in terms of OPEX and CAPEX”.
