ADNOC’s integrated gas processing company, has awarded a USD 615 mn engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to Petrofac Emirates to build carbon capture infrastructure at the Habshan gas processing plant in Abu Dhabi, the company said in a press release. 

 Petrofac Emirates will construct carbon capture units, pipeline infrastructure, and a network of wells for CO2 injection at the plant. The project will be commissioned in 2026.

The Habshan Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) project is one of the largest carbon capture projects in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and will have the capacity to capture and permanently store 1.5 million tons per annum (mtpa) of CO2 within geological structures deep underground.

ADNOC Gas will be responsible for building, operating and maintaining the project on behalf of ADNOC.
Ahmed Mohamed Alebri, Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Gas, said in a press release yesterday, “Integrated carbon capture projects, such as the Habshan CCUS project, are essential building blocks for ADNOC Gas to achieve its decarbonization goals. This project represents our commitment to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while unlocking new and attractive commercial opportunities for delivering sustainable, lower-carbon growth for the Company. This large-scale project reaffirms our steadfast commitment to maximizing energy output while minimizing our emissions, steering us toward a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future,” Alberi said in the satatement.

The Habshan carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project will have the capacity to capture and store 1.5 MT of CO2 annually, which will be stored in deep geological formations underground in ADNOC Onshore’s Bab Far North Field, roughly 150 miles southwest of Abu Dhabi. Adnoc Gas will build, operate, and maintain the project, the release notes. Over 65% of the contract value will flow back into the UAE's economy through Adnoc’s In-Country Value program, according to the press release.

Over 65% of the contract value will flow back into the UAE’s economy through  ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) program, supporting local economic and industrial growth and diversification. The Habshan CCUS project is expected to be comissioned in 2026. CO2 will be injected and placed for permanent storage in ADNOC Onshore’s Bab Far North Field, located approximately 150 miles southwest of Abu Dhabi.
