Rotork orders for gas developments

In the latest of several similar contracts in the Middle East, Rotork electric, hydraulic and pneumatic actuators have been ordered for two major new gas developments in the UAE. The Habshan Onshore Gas Development Phase 3 and Asab Gas Development Phase 2 will provide a huge resource of natural gas to liquids (NGL) and condensate for the refinery at Ruwais to assist with the expansion of the petrochemical industry in Abu Dhabi. In addition both projects will generate substantial volumes of liquid gas, which will be re-injected into the oil fields for pressure stabilisation. Rotork IQ intelligent electric actuators have been ordered throughout the USD 2300 million projects, which involve the construction of NGL and condensate recovery facilities at the Habshan onshore field and a 110km pipeline to Ruwais, where new storage tanks are also being constructed. Six hundred IQ actuators have been ordered, together with up to sixteen Rotork Pakscan two-wire digital control systems. In addition, approximately one hundred quarter-turn pneumatic and linear hydraulic actuators are being supplied, providing a single source for multi-technology actuation products that simplifies the contractual route for the four contractors involved.
