JGC Holdings Corporation (representative director and CEO Masayuki Sato) is pleased to announce that JGC Corporation, in partnership with Technip Energies and NMDC Energy, has been awarded a contract by ADNOC for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the lower-carbon Ruwais LNG project, located in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi.

The project will consist of two natural gas liquefaction trains with a total LNG production capacity of 9.6 Mtpa. The plant will use electric-driven motors instead of conventional gas turbines and will be powered by clean energy, making it the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa region to run on clean power. This innovation positions it as one of the lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants in the world.

The Ruwais LNG project will more than double ADNOC’s LNG production capacity, aligning with global natural gas demand and the shift towards decarbonisation.

Farhan Mujib, representative director and president of JGC, commented, “We are highly honoured to have been awarded this innovative lower-carbon LNG project, which represents the next generation of energy security and sustainability. We commit to leveraging our capabilities and experience for the lower-carbon Ruwais LNG project, bringing our proven track record in the LNG field. We are convinced this will contribute to the success of the project and enhance economic growth in the UAE.”

Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, remarked, “We are honoured to have been awarded the Ruwais LNG project by ADNOC. This pioneering initiative in the LNG sector, powered by electrified LNG trains using nuclear energy, sets a new standard for energy security and sustainability. By leveraging our low-carbon and electrified LNG leadership, we will support ADNOC’s position as a reliable global natural gas supplier and its commitment to decarbonisation.”

Ahmed Al Dhaheri, CEO of NMDC Energy, stated, “We are proud to be entrusted by ADNOC with the Ruwais LNG project, which strengthens our position in the UAE’s energy landscape and underscores our dedication to advancing the country’s sustainable development. Utilising nuclear energy for LNG production not only sets a new international standard for low-emission energy but also aligns with the UAE’s strategy for a sustainable future.”
