The $1.6 billion Al Ahdab oil field construction project was developed by CNPC with CH2M as their engineering contractor.

CH2M had been using WRENCH technology for several years and because of the project's fast-track timeline suggested to CNPC and the client that using WRENCH SMARTPROJECT as a platform would enable faster delivery. WRENCH was brought in to set up a system that could handle progress management and document managment across 120+ vendors and multiple offices around the world. Thanks to this, the project was completed in record time and oil production began exactly on schedule.

By November 2012 it was reported that oil production had reached 140,000 bpd, from 170 wells.
