ADNOC has issued a Limited Notice to Proceed (LNTP) for early engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) activities to a joint venture, led by Technip Energies, with JGC Corp. and National Petroleum Construction Co. PJSC for its low-carbon liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi.

With the Final Investment Decision (FID) expected this year, the Ruwais LNG project is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa region to run on clean power, making it one of the lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants in the world, according to ADNOC.

Fatema Al Nuaimi, executive vice president, Downstream Business Management at ADNOC, said the Ruwais LNG project will reinforce ADNOC’s position as a reliable global natural gas supplier, underscoring its pivotal role and contribution to global energy security.

“The project is set to significantly contribute to the Al Dhafra region’s economy by boosting the local industrial ecosystem, attracting further investments and creating a vital energy trade gateway in Al Ruwais Industrial City,” he said.

Once completed, the project will consist of two 4.8 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6mmtpa, and is set to more than double ADNOC’s LNG production capacity, from 6mmtpa to around 15mmtpa.
