I am getting ready to bottle a Belgian Abbey , and was hoping to give it some Duval type carbonation. Do I just use more priming sugar, or I have heard about just adding table sugar.

Make sure your bottles are strong enough. Ordinary longnecks would be dangerous at Duvel-level carbonation.

Using your favorite brewing software's carbonation calculator (or just google "priming calculator"), target 3.5ish volumes. The exact amount of sugar depends on the type of sugar and the volume and temperature of the beer.
