A better life for generations to come
Lootah BC Gas
The development of a natural gas distribution network, a first for the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf region, required not only the expertise in gas transportation, but also a reliable and safe distribution system reaching into households. For this project, the S.S Lootah Group found a partner, ‘Terasen International’, formerly BC Gas International of Canada with over 100 years experience in natural gas distribution engineering, construction and operation.
The Lootah-BC Gas International joint venture won the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for Sharjah Natural Gas Distribution from the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority in 1998. After successful completion of the Sharjah project, Lootah BC Gas won several local and regional contracts. Other projects include a pioneering pilot project with ADNOC to use CNG for vehicle fueling in Abu Dhabi, a BOOT contract for distribution station and gas network for Nakheel projects in Dubai.
Most recently, contracts for natural gas distribution network in Tanzania and Turkey, technology transfer and operation and management of the gas transmission network in Oman highlight our regional expansion drive. Opportunities keep unfolding across the entire region and our local knowledge, international expertise and regional reach have made us the undisputed leaders in the gas transmission and distribution industry in the region today.
