Global Industries has won a contract from Dubai Petroleum Establishment to perform the Al Jalilah Platform and Pipelines EPC project.

The project covers the design, construction and installation of a basic, unmanned offshore wellhead platform, one 27km x 6" gas lift pipeline, and one 27km x 12" oil production pipeline to one of Dubai Petroleum’s existing offshore processing facilities.
