Abu Dhabi Gas Development Company (ADGDC) has hired diversified technology and manufacturing company Honeywell International to assist in the development of the Shah gas field.
It is expected that once the gas field reaches full production capacity in 2014, the site will yield approximately one billion cubic feet of gas per day, thereby significantly boosting Abu Dhabi's domestic gas supply.
Honeywell has been hired to provide its safety management technologies, which will be utilised by ADGDC to give personnel a complete view of process and safety information across the site.
In addition, Honeywell will design, engineer and implement a broad array of new technologies and advanced applications that will help the plant operate as efficiently as possible from the first day of production.
Saif Al-Ghafli, chief executive officer of ADGDC, said: "This is a highly strategic project for the emirate and it was imperative for us to select the right partners. Honeywell's reputation for successfully executing complex mega-projects was a significant factor in our selection."
Honeywell is a Fortune 100 company whose shares are traded on the New York, London and Chicago stock exchanges.
