Dubai: Abu Dhabi powerhouses ADNOC and Taqa are launching a brand new challenge firm to present sustainable water provide for ADNOC’s many onshore operations. The challenge investments that the brand new entity will tackle are estimated at Dh8.8 billion ($2.4 billion).
ADNOC and Taqa can have 51 per cent within the ‘challenge firm’, with a consortium holding the remainder on a build-own-operate and switch (BOOT) foundation. The consortium options Orascom Building and Metito, and can organize the challenge financing for the development section and develop the challenge. The complete challenge can be returned to ADNOC after 30 years of operation.
The plan entails growing a centralized seawater therapy facility and transportation community for ADNOC operations on the Bab and Bu Hasa fields in Abu Dhabi. This challenge will exchange the present ‘high-salinity, deep aquifer water techniques’ on the fields, thereby decreasing water injection associated power consumption by as much as 30 per cent.
The challenge can be related to the grid and can obtain 100 per cent of its energy from clear power sources.
The brand new entity will ‘scale back our environmental footprint and unlock vital worth as we proceed to decarbonize and future-proof our operations’, mentioned Abdulmunim Al Kindy, ADNOC’s Upstream Govt Director.
