(Image source: MMEC Mannesmann)MMEC Mannesmann GmbH (MMEC), a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), has announced the opening of its branch office in Abu Dhabi that will function as a regional headquarters to meet the growing demand for speciality services in oil and gas, chemicals, metals and mining and renewables sectors in the Middle East

The German engineering contractor is known for executing complex projects (upstream and downstream) for oil and gas and chemical and petrochemical industries, covering the entire cycle from early project development, feasibility studies, including hydraulic and case studies, conceptual and basic design, front-end engineering design up to the implementation of turnkey projects.

The company which has more than 50 years of experiencing implementing projects over 80 countries are currently working on a number of projects across the region, including the recently-won Sulphur Pipeline Project by ADNOC Sour Gas in Abu Dhabi.

The large-scale EPC turnkey contract awarded earlier this year involves installing the entire pipeline system with a capacity to transport 10,000 TPD liquid sulphur, 50 per cent over current capacity, to Sulphur Granulation Station, around 11 km north, via pipeline.

The Abu Dhabi team will work closely with existing office in Dubai and the headquarters in Germany towards strengthening the company’s presence in the region and leverage on the opportunities arising from the oil and gas, chemical and mining sectors.

“On the back of oil price going up by more than 60 per cent in the past two years, reaching today equivalent levels of 2015, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s economy is projected to grow at more than three per cent in 2019, and, according to the World Bank, is expected to remain strong for the next two years. This, along with various on-going policy and economic reforms, will continue to drive growth for key infrastructure, oil & gas, mining and renewables sectors,” said Oliver Apelt, CEO at MMEC Mannesmann.

MMEC Mannesmann has been executing a wide range of services for complex projects in the region, including Water Transmission System – Phase 1 and 2 – Fujairah, Petroleum Coke Calcining Plant – UAE, North East BAB - Phase 1 – UAE, Petroleum Coke Calcining Plant – Bahrain, and Sohar Calciner – Oman. The Middle East and Africa region contribute significantly to the company’s total business volume.
