In order to drive offshore operational efficiency and expand crude oil production capacity to five million barrels per day (mmbpd) by 2030, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has agreed to pay $1.17 billion (AED4.3 billion) for the hiring of 13 self-propelled jack-up barges. The five-year contract was awarded by ADNOC Offshore to ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S) and highlights ADNOC’s world-class capabilities.
Under ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) programme, 80 percent of the award value will flow back into the UAE’s economy. With ADNOC L&S’s single-point responsibility, the 13 self-propelled jack-up barges enable rig-less operations and maintenance, enabling enhanced efficiency. Designed to support a wide range of operations, including project work, maintenance, and accommodation, the barges will be deployed across ADNOC’s offshore fields.
