Tell us about your stand?
Our stand represents the connection between Samsung Engineering services and contributions on the business side with ambition to bring a brighter and better future for clients, society and environment in our operating regions. We want to give emphasis on the importance which corporate social responsibly plays in our world. Therefore, we presented our business portfolio integrated with our efforts to bring a better future to society. At our stand, you can give back and bring knowledge to the children by donating books in your name. I would be honoured if the visitors gain interest in our efforts both on social and business side. With Samsung Engineering UAE
(SEUAE) as a major MENA hub, SEUAE plays a crucial strategic role in overseeing projects spanning North Africa to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
Therefore, we are looking to enhance our competitive edge by maximising the interactions between our global operation centres. Each centre has a distinctive role and a responsibility to increase the efficiency of project executions. In this respect, SEUAE plays a vital role as a middle office, managing risks, controlling profits and responsible for business developments.
Furthermore, Samsung Engineering is focused on our clients’ expectations and requirements, and we pride ourselves on building solutions in direct response to their needs. This is what makes us different, and what gives us a competitive edge. For instance, Abu Dhabi has set ambitious targets for its sour gas reserves. We can make a particular contribution given our expertise in sour gas processing. We always put our utmost efforts to introduce innovate techniques in our projects.
Orbital Automatic Welding machines for example have been applied to designated sites. These machines improve the production efficiency of pipeline larger than 30” and further reduce the risks of accident at site, through the automation process. We have already proven our capabilities with a number of flagship gas handling projects in the Middle East, such as the Shah Gas Development Package, a new, largescale green field gas project in Abu Dhabi for Al Hosn Gas, as well as the CO2 Capture & Injection Project and the Shaybah CPF Expansion GOSP Project for Saudi Aramco.
Our success in gas plant projects can be attributed to our process design and our analysis technology, which reduce the costs with high fidelity predictive modelling. Samsung Engineering also has special internal expertise allowing us to reduce replenishment costs and minimise energy use in gas processing.

What are your aims at this year’s ADIPEC?
Samsung Engineering is pledged to bring growth to its partners with perpetual support, especially valuing and heavily supporting clients by participating in events such as ADIPEC. It is irrefutable that
ADIPEC is a great platform for knowledge sharing, innovation and showcasing our company’s capabilities across the globe. With growth and co-prosperity always a major goal to provide for our clients, we further want to show at this year’s ADIPEC that we are one of the leading and entrusted global EPC & PM companies operating in the Middle East on the one hand, but additionally bring sustainable development for the UAE and the Middle East region overall through several CSR programs on the other hand, which we have initiated and executed for our clients over the years. We have been an essential exhibitor at ADIPEC for several years and have been sponsoring this great event a couple of times, this year as a “Silver Sponsor”. Samsung Engineering is an ADIPEC veteran and belongs to this event and will stay actively involved as much as possible in every way.
Where are your key markets?
As mentioned before Samsung Engineering provides a wide range of services from EPC turnkey projects to FEED developments in this reason for major clients such as ADNOC.
The Middle East represents a large number of our projects globally. Samsung Engineering has tried to strengthen its relationship with existing customers there in order to win repeated business. Our major core market has been traditionally GCC counties such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, and extended to Kuwait and Oman. This is still very much the case with the vast majority of the firm’s backlog being in these two countries. The expansion of the Ruwais refinery is at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s plan to diversify its economy away from upstream extraction. Regarding FEED projects, we conducted the FEED development for the Borouge 4 project (a joint venture between ADNOC and the Austrian Borealis) based on the successful Borouge 3 expansion project, the largest integrated polyolefin site in the world, for which Samsung Engineering acted as an EPC contractor.
