Petrofac bags CCUS project in the UAE

ABU DHABI, October 3, 2023 – Petrofac has signed a USD 600-million contract with ADNOC Gas to provide EPC services for its Habshan CCUS project, the UK engineering giant announced on Tuesday.

The scope of work includes delivery of carbon capture units, associated pipeline infrastructure and a network of wells for carbon dioxide recovery and injection.

The CCUS project is located at the Habshan gas processing plant located 150 kilometres southwest of Abu Dhabi.

ADNOC Gas completed its FDI on the CCUS project in September 2023.


“Petrofac is committed to supporting ADNOC Gas in delivering lower-carbon growth,” said Elie Lahoud, COO of Petrofac Engineering & Construction.

“We have over 30 years’ experience of successful delivery here in the UAE and continue to put in-country value at the centre of our operations, utilising the local supply chain, developing capabilities and creating new opportunities for UAE nationals.”

ADNOC recently peeled back its target to have net-zero carbon emissions to 2045.

In January 2023, the company allocated USD 15 billion towards decarbonisation projects by 2030.

The UAE will be hosting the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change or COP28 in Dubai from November 30 to December 12, 2023.
