Company: ZADCO

Project: Zirku Island ESD Upgrade Conceptual Study

Location: Abu Dhabi


In 2013 PEAK was approached to get involved in a conceptual study for ZADCO, which aimed to detail the required Emergency Shutdown (ESD) upgrades to an oil/gas separation and stabilisation plant. This work was required in order to meet the latest industry standards.


Throughout the project, PEAK was responsible for the delivery of all major process and safety planning, including process-safeguarding diagrams, safeguarding narratives, cause and effects, and piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs). These documented and detailed all proposed changes.

A review of the relief and blowdown system was also undertaken to account for proposed changes.


ZADCO underwent a successful upgrade to its oil/gas separation and stabilisation plant, smoothly accomplishing industry standard.
