ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won a contract worth $155 million from the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for a turnkey project to design and build a new crude-oil transit line and associated ancillary systems.

The project includes the expansion of an existing manifold (a pipeline consolidation installation) at Point A, a location in the north of the country, and the installation of the new transit line. The 123 km, 30-inch-diameter transit line will run between oil fields in the north of the country and a storage facility in the south. It will be equipped with pipeline inspection gauges at 15 km intervals, a leak-detection system and metering stations.

The new installations are designed to transport up to 665 thousand barrels of oil per day from Point A to a tank farm in southern Kuwait. More than half of the oil will come from the newly established Jurassic field in northern Kuwait.

“ABB has the technologies, industry knowledge and experience to deliver this important project to our customers,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation division. “By providing reliable solutions and infrastructure, we help our customers to optimize the productivity and efficiency of their operations.”

ABB will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, construction supervision, commissioning and start-up of the new system. ABB will also provide an automation system and distributed-control systems, as well as instrumentation, electrical equipment and an emergency-shutdown system. The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2012.

ABB’s Process Automation division delivers integrated automation solutions for control, plant optimization, and industry-specific application knowledge and services to help process industry customers worldwide meet their critical business needs in the areas of operational profitability, capital productivity, risk management and global responsibility. These industries include oil and gas, power, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, metals, minerals, cement, marine and turbocharging.
