The company’s diverse regional operations encompass established processes alongside newer power technologies, from combined-cycle and open-cycle gas turbines to steam production and captive solar power. This extensive range of capabilities reflects a wide breadth of expertise, marking ENGIE out as an agile and adaptable operator in what is a rapidly evolving sector.

Operations in the United Arab Emirates represent the largest individual contribution from ENGIE ’s regional portfolio. From Shuweihat 1 and 2 in the west to Fujairah F2 in the east, six combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants deliver 10GW of power. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, ENGIE provides 7.5GW of power capacity, with the new NADEC plant currently under construction and projected to deliver some 30MW of captive solar power. Steam production plants at Fadhili and Tihama and CCGTs at Riyadh PP11 and Marafiq complete a diverse power portfolio in Saudi.

ENGIE’s operations in the State of Qatar and the Sultanate of Oman each contribute close to 3.8GW power capacity. In Qatar, power is produced at two CCGT plants at Ras Laffan, whilst activities in Oman are spread across seven plants. In the latter, open-cycle gas turbines at Al Rusail and Al Kamil deliver 665MW and 280MW respectively, with CCGT production across three facilities at Barka and two plants in Sohar.

Three CCGT facilities in the Kingdom of Bahrain – at Al Ezzel, Al Hidd, and Al Dur – produce a total of over 3GW of power. With a combined-cycle gas turbine, the State of Kuwait’s first IWPP at Az Zour North contributes 1.5GW capacity, whilst UCH1 and UCH2 in Pakistan operate CCGT plants to deliver approximately 1GW of power.

The sustainable production of power is key to continued economic and social development throughout the GCC. ENGIE’s ongoing investment in conventional and renewable technologies reflects not only the company’s commitment to maintaining its leading position in this crucial sector, but also its far-reaching local expertise and knowledge.
