Technip has won a contract from Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) for flare modification work and upgrade project on Das Island, located 290km offshore Abu Dhabi, UAE.

ADMA-OPCO is undertaking the project work to reduce the risk of existing atmospheric flares on offshore that are associated with gas and gas development facilities.

The project also aims to reduce the chances of gas exposure for personnel during operation and maintenance of the facilities.

Under the lump sum turnkey contract, Technip will provide engineering, procurement, construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning and start-up support for the modification work.

The scope of work also includes relocating the South Relief flare to the east of the existing flare F-14, installing two new ground flares at the existing South Relief flare location, demolishing the F-11 and F-14 flares, replacing a tip for flare and setting up a new electrical substation.

Technip’s operating center in Abu Dhabi will perform the project work, which is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2015.
