Technip JV to Start EPC Activities at ADNOC’s Ruwais LNG Project

TJN Ruwais JV, a joint venture led by Technip Energies NV, has received a limited notice to proceed from Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to begin early engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) activities at the Ruwais low-carbon LNG project in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi.

The joint venture includes JGC Holdings Corporation and National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC).

The project will consist of two natural gas liquefaction trains with a total liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity of 9.6 million metric tons per annum (mtpa). The plant will use electric-driven motors instead of conventional gas turbines and will be powered by nuclear energy, Technip said in a news release Wednesday.

The plant is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to run on clean power, making it one of the lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants in the world. The project will “significantly enhance ADNOC’s LNG production capacity aligning with global natural gas demand and the shift towards decarbonization”, according to the release.

Technip Energies CEO Arnaud Pieton said, “LNG is a critical source of energy on the world’s pathway to net zero and Technip Energies is committed to supporting its continued development while concretely addressing the necessary demand being placed on the industry for emissions abatement. The Ruwais LNG project reflects the future. It innovates for a decarbonized LNG industry”.

“With zero carbon energy sources to power electrified LNG trains, we are setting a new standard for LNG production. This project not only enhances our strong partnership with ADNOC but also reinforces our position as a leader in low-carbon LNG. We are proud to be part of this project that perfectly aligns with our ambition of enabling net zero solutions and meeting the challenge of an affordable, available and sustainable energy”, Pieton added.

Farhan Mujib, Representative Director and President of JGC, said, “We are highly honored to participate in this innovative low-carbon LNG Project. With the backdrop of global focus on decarbonization, the JGC Group is accelerating the promotion of energy transition, and the project is firmly in line with the direction of our strategy”.

“We commit to leveraging our capabilities and experience for the Ruwais low-carbon LNG Project, bringing to the project our proven track record in the LNG field. We are convinced this will contribute to the success of the project and enhance economic growth in the UAE”, Mujib noted.

NPCC CEO Ahmed Al Dhaheri said, “We are deeply honored to be selected for the Ruwais low-carbon LNG Project with our esteemed partners, marking a significant step toward environmental sustainability and global energy transition”.

“Utilizing clean energy for LNG production sets a new industry standard, drastically lowering carbon emissions and paving the way for a cleaner future. We’re proud to be part of a project that not only secures energy but also showcases the UAE’s role in leading the energy transition”, he concluded.

ADNOC in October 2023 awarded a contract of over $400 million (AED 1.47 billion) to Baker Hughes Co. for the supply of compression systems for the Ruwais low-carbon LNG project. The facility’s LNG trains will use the USA firm’s 75-megawatt BRUSH electric motor technology, Baker Hughes said in an earlier statement.

In February, Technip Energies secured a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for the Viking Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project in the United Kingdom (UK) led by Harbour Energy and BP plc.

Technip Energies, supported by its subsidiary Genesis, is providing FEED services for the carbon dioxide transportation system, including the CO2 handling station, onshore and offshore pipeline, and a NPAI (Not Permanently Attended Installation) platform.
