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.
