ABU DHABI: Abu Dhabi National Chemicals Company (ChemaWEyaat) has awarded the project management consulting (PMC) contract for its Tacaamol Aromatics Project (TAP) to Australia’s WorleyParsons.
WorleyParson’s London and Abu Dhabi offices will be the primary resource centres for the project. TAP is part of ChemaWEyaat’s first phase, which also includes the Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia (MCAG) project.
The MCAG project will develop the 70 square kilometres of land allocated to ChemaWEyaat by the government of Abu Dhabi for the chemicals city known as MCAG, located in Al Gharbia near Adnoc’s Ruwais Industrial Complex. It will provide infrastructure requirements for the TAP, which consists of the design and construction of one of the world’s largest reformers to date, with a projected capacity of about 70,000 barrels per day, and includes world-scale integrated benzene, toluene, and xylene (BTX) units.
Feedstocks for TAP will be provided by the Adnoc Group. ChemaWEyaat is jointly owned by IPIC (40 per cent), Abu Dhabi Investment Council (40 per cent), and Adnoc (20 per cent).Project name: Tacaamol Aromatics Project (TAP)
