Habtoor Leighton secures UAE oilfield contract
Company secures accommodation construction contract from ADMA-OPCO
Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has secured an AED250 million contract for the design and construction of an accommodation camp and associated utilities on two artificial islands, S1 & S2, as part of the Satah Al Razboot (SARB) oilfield development, located 120 km north-west of Abu Dhabi, for Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO).
HLG CEO and Managing Director José Antonio Lopez-Monis said the new project reinforces the Group’s capabilities in the oil and gas sector and builds on the Group’s reputation as one of the leading diversified international contractors in the Middle East and North Africa.
“Oil and gas-related projects such as the SARB project align perfectly with HLG’s building and infrastructure expertise, and the Group’s ability to deliver specialist projects in remote locations,” said Mr Lopez-Monis.
HLG will also be responsible for the management and supervision of off-shore installation works on the two SARB artificial islands.
“This is the third oil and gas-related project to be awarded to HLG in the past six months and we remain focused on securing more work in the sector.
“Working with ADMA-OPCO on the SARB artificial islands provides HLG with an opportunity to further demonstrate our oil and gas expertise, and secure additional oil and gas-related contracts on both the SARB oil field development and other oil and gas projects across the region,” Mr Lopez-Monis said.
The project will commence immediately and is anticipated to be completed mid-2014.
