Saaga Gas to Fuel Sharjah Cement Plant
A 5-km. gasline is currently under construction to supply natural gas from the Saaga field in Sharjah to the Sharjah Cement Plant whose output is currently running at 750,000 tons/year. Deliveries of some 3-5mn cu. ft./day of gas will start early next year to the cement plant which will have a dual firing system. The Saaga gas is already in use in a number of utilities and power plants in the northern UAE emirates.
