ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S), the shipping and maritime logistics arm of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has announced its strategic partnership with Netherlands-headquartered Roll Group to strengthen its turnkey integrated logistics offering. The partnership with Roll Group enables ADNOC L&S to jointly implement heavy haulage solutions for both onshore and offshore projects.

Under the terms of the agreement, ADNOC L&S and Roll Group will offer end-to-end heavy lifting and transport solutions, including full scale installation for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts, acting as a one-stop shop for all logistic requirements. This integrated approach is expected to reduce overall project costs for customers, including ADNOC Group. The agreement also strengthens the development of ADNOC L&S’ logistics base in Mussafah and Riash as Roll Group will set up a permanent base at ADNOC L&S’ Mussafah Offshore Supply Base and relocate its Self-Propelled Modular Trailers (SPMTs) to ADNOC L&S’ Riash facility. 

Captain Abdulkareem Al Masabi, CEO of ADNOC L&S, said:

“The UAE is currently making large investments in new downstream and industrial facilities and refurbishing existing plants. As part of our broad strategy across shipping, integrated logistics and marine services, we are creating an integrated ecosystem that can meet the transport and logistical needs of such large and critical oil and gas projects.” 

There are several major oil and gas projects at the bidding stage in the UAE, which require a combined solution of Heavy Lift land transport, marine transport, marine services and engineering. The collaboration between ADNOC L&S and Roll Group enables the companies to provide fully integrated solutions within the UAE and across the region. 

ADNOC L&S currently operates logistics bases in Ruwais, Fujairah and Mussafah with Mussafah operating as the largest integrated logistics base in the Gulf region. The company also operates the only marine passenger terminal within ADNOC Group, providing a wide range of diversified services to the offshore industry with limited competition in the region.

Nimalan Logeswaran, Regional Sales Director for Roll Group MEA said:

“We have formed this partnership to consolidate our expertise in response to the changing market conditions and our clients’ requirements. By providing a single integrated source covering end-to-end logistics solutions, ADNOC L&S and Roll Group can now offer our clients an optimized and economical approach for their logistical needs on oil and gas projects. Our focus is to help our clients deliver the most innovative and cost-effective solutions to their clients. This is why both companies have committed to jointly exploring the next generation of innovative Heavy Lift solutions for the region.”
