The Client Al Hosn Gas is a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Occidental Oil & Gas Corporation. The Shah Gas Development (SGD) Project is in Shah, about 200 kilometers southwest of Abu Dhabi city.
The infrastructure project is important to the Abu Dhabi energy sector and its “Economic Vision 2030.” SGD facilities were designed to process about 1 billion standard cubic feet per day (SCFD) of well fluid containing 23 percent hydrogen sulfide and 10 percent carbon dioxide.
From this feed gas stream, the plant provides approximately 500 million SCFD of clean natural gas for the Abu Dhabi market while supplying 4,400 tons per day of natural gas liquids, 33,000 barrels per day of condensate, and 9,200 tons per day of elemental sulfur for industrial and agricultural uses. A new benchmark for world gas processing and treating, as well as the magnitude of processed gas and produced sulfur, has been set.
To manage risks associated with the project, Al Hosn required an early focus on all aspects of health, safety, and the environment to be sustained during the development, assessment, and implementation of plant design, construction execution strategy, and the operability assurance program.
