Penspen, a global provider of engineering and project management services to the energy industry, has been awarded a contract by Target Engineering Construction Co LLC for slug catcher replacement support on a project on Zirku Island in UAE.

The Penspen contract is for work on the island’s Satah slug catcher replacement project. The project’s objective is to replace the existing slug catchers at the Zirku Satah plant, which is operated by ADNOC Offshore, with new ones cladded with a corrosion-resistant nickel super alloy. It will also include modifications to associated pipelines, instrumentation and control systems, electrical, civil and structural works.

Penspen will carry out detailed engineering services. The scope of work for the company includes a review of processes, loss prevention/technical safety, mechanical, piping, instrumentation and control, civil and structural, electrical and corrosion/materials.

ADNOC Offshore operates the Upper Zakum (UZ), Lower Zakum (LZ), Umm Shaif, Nasr, Umm Lulu & SARB, Satah and Umm Al Dalkh (UAD) offshore oil fields, located in the Arabian Gulf. It also operates oil and gas processing plants on Zirku and Das islands.

Neale Carter, Penspen’s Executive Vice President for the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific Regions, says, “This project continues our support for the Satah field and Zirku Island developments and will enhance our established position as a valued engineering services provider in the Middle East. We would also hope that it would lead to further support to ADNOC Offshore in the future.”
