ABB, the Swiss-based power and technology group, has won a contract worth over $100m to build a new gas condensate processing plant in Oman.

The project will be built for Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the company said in a statement.

The new Saih Nihayda Condensate Stabilisation Plant will be located near the Saih Nihayda gas plant in the north part of PDO concession area, and will have the capacity to process 4,500 standard cubic metres of condensate per day.

The plant is scheduled for completion by the end of 2014, the statement said.

The new plant will be used as a backup for the existing central processing plant to ensure continued gas production for PDO's domestic and export customers, the statement added.

The project is central to PDO's goal to sustain gas flows from its main gas production facilities in the north part of PDO concession area.

"This contract underscores ABB's trusted technology leadership to deliver full-scope projects to our oil and gas customers," said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB's Process Automation division.

"Our industry expertise and global and local resources will help this project to be implemented and operated successfully, from design to start-up."

ABB will be responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the facilities, including project management, training, testing and on-site support for operation and maintenance after start-up.

In addition, ABB will supply power equipment such as low- and medium-voltage switchgear, power transformers, the electrical control system, as well as continuous emission monitoring systems and other analytical instrumentation.

The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people.
