UAE's NPCC claims world record for Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform

Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), a subsidiary of Senaat, announced on Twitter that it has secured the Guinness World Record for the “heaviest single-module topside on a fixed steel jacket” for its Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform (ULGTP).

The ULGTP set on a fixed steel jacket weighs approximately 32,000 metric tonnes (MT) was manufactured at NPCC’s 130ha fabrication yard in Abu Dhabi's Musaffah area. The platform handles gas compression, dehydration, and sweetening activities.

The ULGTP measures 77.7x83.5m and is made from raw materials sourced within the UAE.

Construction Week reported in June 2019 that NPCC, the consortium leader for the major Umm Lulu Field, was responsible for the detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, offshore installation, commissioning, and start-up of the offshore super complex.
