The contract awarded by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) is for the Umm Lulu Full Field Development Project.

Throughout the duration of the contract, NPCC will be the consortium leader and be responsible for the overall delivery of the project, said a statement carried by news agency WAM.

The contract's scope of work consists of the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, offshore installation, commissioning and start-up of a large offshore super complex located in the Umm Lulu Field.

The complex will comprise six bridge linked platforms including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules.

These platforms totalling over 66,000 metric tonnes will be fabricated at NPCC's yard in Abu Dhabi.

The project is scheduled to be completed in in the first half of 2018, the statement added.

The Umm Lulu field development is part of Adma-Opco's plans to add around 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil output from three fields to lift production to about 1 million bpd of oil by 2020.

Currently, Adma-Opco's production is 600,000 bpd of oil.
