The Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC) has inaugurated its Taweelah Gas Compression Plant, which will supply gas to major Abu Dhabi industries and the Northern Emirates.
The plant, located 50 km north of Abu Dhabi city, will utilide up to 450 million ft3/d of sales gas. The gas will be delivered to the facility by ADNOC Gas Processing’s recently installed Maqta-Taweelah pipeline.
The inauguration of the Taweelah Gas Compression Plant comes less than a month after Abu Dhabi’s Supreme Petroleum Council approved ADNOC’s new integrated gas strategy, which will enable the UAE to achieve gas self-sufficiency, with the aim of potentially transitioning to a net gas exporter.
The Taweelah Gas Compression Plant comprises three compression trains, each with a processing capacity of 225 million ft3/d. At any one time, two of the compression trains will be operational, with the third on standby.
