The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) inaugurated its Taweelah Gas Compression Plant, ensuring uninterrupted gas supplies to Abu Dhabi industries and the UAE’s Northern Emirates. The plant, located 50 kilometers north of Abu Dhabi, will utilize up to 450 mmscfd of sales gas, delivered to the facility by ADNOC Gas Processing’s recently installed Maqta-Taweelah pipeline.
The Plant comprises three compression trains, each with a processing capacity of 225 mmscfd. At any one time, two of the compressor trains will be operational with the third on standby. The Taweelah Gas Compression plant was completed under a tight schedule while adhering to the highest safety standards and represents an important milestone in the ADNOC Group’s 2030 smart growth strategy to maximize value from local hydrocarbon resources.
This project is expected to enable the UAE to achieve gas self-sufficiency, with the aim of potentially transitioning to a net gas exporter.
