L&T commissions $400mn ADMA-OPCO projects
Modifications were made to platforms in Umm Lulu and Nasr fields to improve production
Larsen & Tourbo Hydrocarbon Engineering has commissioned the $400mn plus Umm Lulu Phase-I & Nasr Phase-I Field Development projects of Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO).
The contracts included four well head towers (two each in Umm Lulu and Nasr) with another bridge-linked Manifold tower in Nasr field, 102 KMs of sub-sea pipelines, fiber-optic communication cable and associated brown-field modifications on inter-connected platforms.
Extensive modifications were also made to ZADCO’s Umm Al Dalkh (“UAD”) Central Processing Platform to improve production from the Umm Lulu field.
Also to improve production, L&T modified the Umm Shaif platform in the Nasr field and installed a new 20-inch multiphase subsea export pipeline to Total’s Abu Al Bukoosh facilities.
Once fully developed the two projects will progressively contribute additional 105,000 barrels per day from the Umm Lulu field and 65,000 barrels per day from Nasr field.
The Umm Lulu field reported First Oil since October 2014 and the Nasr field achieved production on 24th January, 2015.
“With over 13mn safe man-hours without Lost Time Incidents (“LTI”), this project has demonstrated L&T’s commitment to Health Safety and Environment, continuously striving to achieve its corporate weds of “zero incident zero impact”.” L&T said in a statement.
“This project merits many firsts that include use of smart Wellhead Platforms in UAE, 2 KW solar power capacity on each Platform, 2500-class Multi Selector Manifolds in Inconel material weighing over 8.5 tons each, etc,” it added.
The project was executed from multiple L&T centers. Engineering and procurement for both projects was carried out at L&T-Valdel engineering center in Bangalore, India.
The entire manufacture, including integration with sophisticated equipment and systems, was conducted from L&T’s Modular Fabrication Yard in Sohar, Oman.
