ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S) has unveiled its Integrated Logistics Services Platform (ILSP), one of the largest turnkey offshore logistics offerings in the world that enables coordinated end-to-end management of logistics and maritime operations at its base in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi.
As part of the launch of the ILSP project, ADNOC L&S confirms that it signed a US$2.6 billion (AED9.5 billion) contract with ADNOC Offshore to provide integrated logistics services.
The agreement runs for five years, with the option of a five-year extension, and includes the provision of port services, warehouse operations, heavy lifting, material handling and shipping, rig and barge moves, marine terminal operations and waste management services. Over 80 percent of the contract value will flow back into the UAE’s economy through ADNOC’s successful In-Country Value (ICV) programme.
Captain Abdulkareem Al Masabi, CEO of ADNOC L&S, said, “We are very pleased to extend our decades’ long collaboration with ADNOC Offshore as we unveil our ILSP and continue to revolutionise offshore oil and gas logistics. The ILSP is a unique offering that centralises all logistics requirements for our customers through a single interface, optimising efficiencies and reducing logistics costs."
He added, "As we deliver on our ambitious growth strategy, we continue to unlock greater value both for our customers and ADNOC L&S, and reinforce ADNOC L&S’ position as the region’s largest shipping and integrated logistics company and global maritime energy logistics leader.”
ADNOC L&S created the ILSP as part of its ongoing commitment to support the continued growth of the region’s energy sector. By managing all logistics requirements through one system, ILSP can reduce project logistics costs, with customers being invoiced in a unique, cost-per-tonne format, moving away from the standard asset lease model.
Tayba Al Hashemi, CEO of ADNOC Offshore, said, “Building on the world-class capabilities and expertise of ADNOC L&S, we are delighted to work in partnership to enhance the efficiency of our operations, as we continue to strengthen ADNOC’s position as a low-cost, lower-carbon intensity energy producer.”
ADNOC L&S is undertaking a global strategic expansion programme, to offer a broader service to its customers while supporting and enabling the growth of ADNOC’s upstream and downstream operations. The company has the most diversified fleet in the Middle East, owning 245 vessels and managing over 600 vessels annually. Its fleet and its 1.5 million square meters integrated logistics base in Mussafah position the company as a global maritime logistics leader.
