Kentech International Limited Abu Dhabi has just signed two new contracts with Saipem, a subsidiary of Italian energy company Eni and a world leader in the oil and gas contracting services sector, employing over 40,000 people worldwide.

The sheer size of the facility and equipment, in addition to the high technology that is used to process the gas and the complexity in constructing such a large facility will set a new benchmark in the industry. The facilities will be designed to process approximately 1,000 MMSCFD of feed gas.

Package 2 consists of the process plant that includes inlet separating, four acid gas removal units(AGR), two natural gas liquid (NGL) recovery trains and two condensate hydrotreater trains.
