Shaw Group has won a contract to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the replacement of two liquid storage tanks by Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (ADGAS), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

The tanks, which hold paraffinic naptha, a by-product of the island’s processing facilities, are part of the ADGAS liquefied natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas facilities on Das Island, the center of storage and export operations for oil and gas.

The FEED work will help ADGAS increase the capacity of the tanks and loading systems to match modern naphtha tankers capacities.

Currently, the company is providing project management consultancy services for a base oils plant and technology licensing and engineering services for its Residue Fluid Catalytic Cracking technology for Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer).

Recently, Shaw reported full commercial operation of a grassroots 1.3 million metric ton per year ethylene plant for Eastern Petrochemical Company (SHARQ) in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
