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

The Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform (ULGTP) - weighing 32 000 t and measuring 77.7 m x 83.5 m - is one of five platforms manufactured by NPCC at its 1.3 million m2 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 t. The ULGTP will form a key part of the Umm Lulu Field infrastructure.

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."

NPCC had earlier 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 2555 km of cable and 150 km of pipeline by NPCC.
