Fives has been recently awarded a contract to design and supply ITAS flare packages by a major EPC company for Al Dabb’iya Facilities Development Phase III project. Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations Ltd. (ADCO), the end user, is one of the world’s largest oil companies, and operates the Al Dabb’iya field located 40km away from Abu Dhabi.
The project is part of ADCO’s North East Bab development program ; it includes gathering crude oil through a network of new pipelines, oil and gas export pipelines and a central process plant.
Fives will supply 28 ITAS flare packages including tank flares, HP flares, cluster flares to safely and efficiently dispose of flammable, toxic and corrosive waste gases through combustion. Flare systems consist of a special burner installed at an elevation. Both pipe diameter and total height were designed according to the gas backpressure and allowable radiation at grade.
The system commissioning is expected in 2017.
