Abu Dhabi National Chemicals Company (ChemaWEyaat) has awarded to Halcrow Group Ltd. (UK) the Master Plan Consultancy Services Contract for the Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia (MCAG) chemicals industrial city, which will be located in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi (Al Gharbia).

Halcrow will develop the master plan for the MCAG site, which encompasses 70 sq. km of land allocated to ChemaWEyaat by the government of Abu Dhabi in addition to ChemaWEyaat Site at Khalifa Industrial Zone at Al Taweelah Abu Dhabi. Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia is adjacent to the ADNOC-Ruwais Industrial Complex, home to the Borouge Polymers complex, GASCO, and Takreer Refinery, amongst others.

Additionally, the Master Plan will focus on detailed infrastructure planning for all future ChemaWEyaat chemicals complexes being part of Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, starting with ChemaWEyaat first project 'Tacaamol Phase 1 project', which consists of the design and construction of world's largest Reformer to date with a capacity of about 70 thousands barrel per day Reformer and an integrated BTX Units that will primarily produce Benzene, Toluene, Paraxylene, Orthoxylene and Metaxylene, as well as Light Naphtha and LPG for export. With the completion of first defined milestone in the Master Plan schedule, FEED work for Tacaamol Phase 1 will commence.

Feedstocks for Madeenat ChemaWEyaat will be provided by ADNOC Group.

The Master Plan will also include export sea port, sea water intake and outfall, and storage terminal. Provisions will also be made for common services such as steam, air, nitrogen etc., to serve all the industrial chemical complexes in Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia.

In addition to Halcrow, bids were also received from AECOM, Bechtel, KEO, and Jurong.

ChemaWEyaat was established by Emiri Decree in November 2008 to enhance the involvement of Abu Dhabi in the domestic chemicals industry complimenting ADNOC's subsidiaries Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge) in Ruwais developing polyethylene and polypropylene based on ethane, Borouge Marketing PTE in Singapore, Ruwais Fertilizers Industries (Fertil) developing methane-based fertilizer plants, and in addition to International Petroleum Investment Company's (IPIC) international chemicals subsidiaries.
