NPCC Abu Dhabi Celebrates Completion of One of the World's Largest Offshore Oil Platforms for ADNOC
ABU DHABI, UAE, June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

His Highness Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of Abu Dhabi 
Executive Council, inaugurated one of the world's largest offshore oil 
platforms manufactured in the UAE by the National Petroleum Construction 
Company (NPCC), a part of Senaat, for Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). 

The Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform (ULGTP) - weighing 32,000 metric tonnes 
(MT) and measuring 77.7 metres x 83.5 metres – nearly as tall as London's Big 
Ben, is one of five platforms manufactured by NPCC at its 1.3 million sqm 
fabrication yard in Abu Dhabi. 

This is part of an EPC contract awarded by ADNOC to NPCC, in consortium with 
TechnipFMC, for a large offshore super complex at the major Umm Lulu field. The 
total weight of the super complex is over 102,648 MT. The ULGTP will form a key 
part of the Umm Lulu Field infrastructure. 

HH Sheikh Hazza said the new milestone in the manufacturing and energy sectors 
is a model for the national industry, adding that the UAE leadership's vision 
and the committed efforts of Emirati talents are the driving force of this 
extraordinary achievement. 

HE Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, said: "The 
completion of this key infrastructure asset marks another significant milestone 
for ADNOC as we drive oil production capacity towards four million barrels per 
day by end of 2020, delivering on our smart growth strategy and meeting 
increasing global demand for energy."

HE Dr. Mohamed Rashed Al Hameli, Chairman of NPCC, said: "Our technological 
developments and digital transformation have brought a qualitative leap to the 
UAE's manufacturing sector. This achievement will establish us as a partner of 
choice for energy majors globally."

Eng. Ahmed Al Dhaheri, CEO of NPCC, said: "Abu Dhabi is now a leading exporter 
of EPC services and we are proud to be the ambassadors of this transformational 
change. We have a robust outlook and are confident that with our team of 
skilled professionals, we will drive a new era of growth."

Earlier, NPCC had commissioned eight platforms for Umm Lulu Package 1. The two 
phases mark an investment of over US$2.5 billion. The contract includes the 
laying of over 2,555 kilometres of cable and 150 kilometres of pipeline by
