National Petroleum Construction Co. (NPCC) in Abu Dhabi has finished building what it calls one of the largest offshore platforms to be manufactured in the UAE for Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC).
Construction was part of an engineering, procurement, and construction contract that ADNOC let to NPCC in consortium with TechnipFMC for a large offshore super complex at Umm Lulu field. Total weight of the super complex is more than 102,648 tonnes. The Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform (ULGTP) weighs 32,000 tonnes and measures 77.7 m x 83½ m. The ULGTP will form a key part of Umm Lulu field infrastructure.
The EPC contract includes laying more than 2,555 km of cable and 150 km of pipeline by NPCC.
Sultan Al Jaber, ADNOC Group chief executive officer, said, “Completion…marks another significant milestone for ADNOC as we drive oil production capacity towards 4 million b/d by end of 2020.”
Earlier, NPCC commissioned eight platforms for Umm Lulu Package 1. The anticipated two phases involve an investment of more than $2.5 billion.
