On the 23rd of January 2014 Navis Crew Management representatives namely General Manager and Quality Manager visited NPCC office in Abu Dhabi National Petroleum Construction Company. The possible prospects for cooperation were mentioned and hopefully may develop mutual benefits. The NATIONAL PETROLEUM CONSTRUCTION COMPANY (NPCC), a Public Joint Stock company, was established in April 1973. The fabrication facilities then were located on Sadiyat Island, 3 km east of Abu Dhabi city. The present facilities are now located at Mussafah, 35 km from Abu Dhabi city. In 1973, NPCC was initially established to provide a facility for the fabrication of steel structures required by the onshore and offshore Oil and Gas production industry. In 1978 NPCC expanded its operation by setting up a custom built pipe coating facility at the yard.
In 1979, NPCC ventured into offshore activities for the Oil & Gas industry, providing marine spreads for Pipelay, Installation and Hook-up works. Today, NPCC owns a dedicated marine fleet consisting 13 construction barges, capable of transportation of up to 12,000 tons, lifting single structures weighing up to 2,600 tons, laying submarine pipelines up to 60" in diameter and hook-up and maintenance works. In 1986, with the intention of serving onshore projects, NPCC ventured into manufacturing Storage Tanks & Spheres for storing various types of petroleum products such as; liquid sulphur, water, diesel oil, crude oil, liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), etc. The dynamic growth of NPCC since its inception and its achievements over the years, have placed this National Company in a league with major international EPC contractors involved in the development of the Oil and Gas Industry.
In 1992, NPCC expanded its engineering capability for designing onshore & offshore facilities, loading terminals, storage tanks, pressure vessels and pipelines. Presently, NPCC has over 300 dedicated engineering staff to support the ongoing operations. The design team is fully equipped with latest state-of-the-art computers/softwares to meet engineering challenges.
In 1994, NPCC constructed its new modern facilities at Mussafah, 35 Km away from Abu Dhabi City, over an area of more than a million square meters.The facilities include modern fabrication & pipe coating yards, marine base and load out facility, offices and accommodation buildings. The fabrication yard is capable for fabrication of up to 67,000 tons of steel per year. In 1996, a modern fabrication facility for fabrication of Pressure Vessels was added which is capable of manufacturing 6,000 tons/annum Pressure Vessels of various types in thickness up to 160 millimeter by hot rolling and 100 millimeter by cold rolling, in diameter from 600 millimeter to 6000 millimeter. The products manufactured at this facility are; Pressure Vessels, Slug Catchers, Separators, Columns, Towers, Scrubbers and other related equipment covering Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel Material. The new state-of-the-art Pressure Vessels Manufacturing Facilities are accredited by ASME to use "U", "U2", "S" and "R" Stamps.
Today, NPCC, as an established global construction company, provides Clients total Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services in the development of offshore and onshore Oil and Gas fields for the Arabian Gulf and the regional markets.
