Penspen, a global energy services company, has secured a 4-year contract from engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) organisation, Galfar Engineering & Contracting Emirates. This is Penspen’s second award from Galfar in recent months.

Having built a significant track record in onshore pipeline engineering, Penspen has been chosen to provide the procurement and construction of flowlines and wellhead installations for 51 wells in ADNOC Onshore’s oilfields at Shah, Qusahwira and Mender in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The scope of the project is to increase the crude oil production from the subject fields whilst ensuring timely delivery of multiple type of wells in task order. The exercise will see Penspen, with its extensive experience from similar projects, cover the design and detailed engineering of different types of wells, including gas lift, water alternating gas (WAG), electrical submersible pump (ESP), water injection and water disposal wells. Additionally, Penspen will support Galfar with project delivery to ensure that time, quality and budget are met by June 2025.

Mohamed Elwakeel, Penspen’s Regional Sales and Marketing Director for the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific Regions, says, “The latest contract award is another endorsement of the long track record Penspen has had in the Middle East. This year marks 60 years since our first office opened in the Middle East, and we are delighted to be continuing to work with key local partners such as Galfar Emirates and ADNOC Onshore.”

“It is through relationships like these that the Penspen name has become synonymous with offering skilled solutions to client dilemmas, regardless of where the work is in the world. The differentiator for Penspen is the technical and operational quality of service we deliver to clients, and the range of work required across 51 wells will suit our experienced teams. We look forward to working with Galfar and ADNOC on this project, as well as others in the future,” Elwakeel continues.

Penspen has been providing engineering, project management, asset management and integrity services to the oil and gas industry worldwide for more than 65 years since being founded as Spencer & Partners in 1954. Since then, the company has undertaken more than 10,000 projects, and has grown to include over 1,000 engineers, with major offices in key global locations.

The announcement of the Abu Dhabi contract comes just days after it was revealed that Penspen had secured a 10-month engineering contract from Petrozim Line Ltd to deliver a next-generation engineering project for the Feruka-Harare pipeline in Zimbabwe.
