NMDC Energy, in collaboration with Technip Energies and JGC Corporation, has secured a $5.5 billion contract from Adnoc for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the lower-carbon Ruwais LNG project in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi. This project will feature two natural gas liquefaction trains capable of producing 9.6 million tonnes of LNG annually. The facility will utilize electric-driven motors powered by clean energy, marking it as the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region to operate on clean power, thereby positioning it among the world's lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants. This initiative will significantly increase Adnoc’s LNG production capacity, aligning with the global demand for natural gas and the move towards decarbonization. Ahmed Al Dhaheri, CEO of NMDC Energy, expressed pride in being selected for the Ruwais LNG project, highlighting its role in advancing the UAE’s sustainable development and setting a new international benchmark for low-emission energy. Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, noted that the project sets a new standard for energy security and sustainability, leveraging their expertise in low-carbon and electrified LNG. Farhan Mujib, representative director and president of JGC, committed to applying their extensive experience in the LNG sector to ensure the success of the lower-carbon Ruwais LNG project.
