The Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has selected ABB for a contract worth over $100m to construct a new gas condensate processing plant in Oman.

ABB will construct the new Saih Nihayda Condensate Stabilization Plant near the Saih Nihayda gas plant in the north part of PDO concession area and will have a processing capacity of 4,500 standard cubic meters of condensate per day.

Under the contract, ABB will engineer, procure, and construct the condensate stabilization facilities, including project management, training, testing and on-site support for operation and maintenance after start-up.

The company will also supply low- and medium-voltage switchgear, power transformers, the electrical control system, as well as continuous emission monitoring systems and other analytical instrumentation.

ABB Process Automation division head Veli-Matti Reinikkala said, "Our industry expertise and global and local resources will help this project to be implemented and operated successfully, from design to start-up."

PDO will use the new plant as a backup project for the existing central processing plant and ensure a continuous gas production supply for its customers.

The plant is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2014.

Petroleum Development Oman is a hydrocarbon exploration and production company based in the Oman.
