Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services (EPS) division has been awarded a contract to provide managed maintenance services for ADNOC’s Al Dhafra Petroleum to support its operations at Haliba field, located onshore along the south-east border of Abu Dhabi.
Al Dhafra Petroleum is a joint venture company between ADNOC and the Korea National Oil Corporation and GSE Energy. The company explores and develops its concession area as it evaluates the commercial value of several promising fields through an agile operating model. The company recently achieved first oil production at Haliba field on 1 June 2019.
Mani Rajapathy, Managing Director, Petrofac EPS East, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Al Dhafra Petroleum, as production from its Haliba field is an integral part of ADNOC’s strategy to unlock and maximise value from all of Abu Dhabi’s oil and gas resources to create long-term and sustainable returns. This is our first contract to specifically undertake maintenance activities for a full asset in Abu Dhabi, setting us up well to support other key projects in the UAE. Our team look forward to playing their role in maintaining the facilities, adding value through the delivery of services in a safe and highly efficient manner.”
