ADNOC L&S awarded US$975mn contract for offshore island construction

Exploration & Production

ADNOC Logistics and Services plc (ADNOC L&S), a global energy maritime logistics leader, announced that it has been awarded a US$975mn artificial island construction contract by ADNOC Offshore

As part of ADNOC’s In-Country Value programme, at least 75% of the total contract value for dredging, land reclamation and marine construction of an artificial island ‘G’ for the Lower Zakum offshore field, will flow back into the UAE economy.

This award is a significant milestone in ADNOC L&S’s strategy to pursue new growth opportunities. The company’s Integrated Logistics business unit is an end-to-end, fully integrated energy logistics services provider. The provision of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services in the integrated logistics business is a new offering by ADNOC L&S in line with its announced strategy to achieve significant ongoing growth, including expansion into new verticals. The EPC market is expected to experience substantial growth in the region in the coming years. The company aims to offer a broader range of services to its customers while facilitating the growth of ADNOC’s upstream and downstream operations. 

This is the first major award for the group after it listed on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) on 1 June 2023 following the highest demand globally for an IPO this year.

Captain Abdulkareem Al Masabi, CEO of ADNOC L&S, said, “Capitalising on our project management expertise, end-to-end logistics solutions, and strategic partnerships, ADNOC L&S is primed to execute major offshore EPC contracts that support our customers’ ambitious growth plans and deliver value to our shareholders. This contract award for the construction of artificial island ‘G’ exemplifies our strategy to tap into new growth areas, showcasing the expanding range of services we offer to our customers and the trust that ADNOC Offshore has placed in us as their partner of choice.”

The Award is part of Lower Zakum’s Long-Term Development Plan, aiming to safely and sustainably unlock greater value while helping to meet the increasing global energy demand. ADNOC Offshore has extensive experience in deploying the artificial island concept for project delivery, resulting in significant cost savings and environmental benefits compared to conventional approaches that require more offshore installations and infrastructure.

ADNOC L&S is targeting an average annual EBITDA growth in the low teens over the medium term. This growth will be driven by new contract awards, further expansion of its Integrated Logistics Services Platform (ILSP), and optimised redeployment of jack-up barges.
