Abu Dhabi, September 23, 2013
Dubai-based Drydocks World (DDW) has won four major maintenance and upgrade projects from the National Drilling Company (NDC), said a report.
The projects, worth Dh90 million ($24.5 million), will cover three offshore rigs owned by NDC - Al Hail, Al-Ghallan and Al-Ittihad, in addition to its multipurpose barge Al-Ghweifat, said the Wam report.
“Our primary consideration is always our clients, and our main objective is fulfilling their requirements through providing the best quality of services, not only in terms of technical execution of jobs, but also, in terms of readiness, reliability, safety and service excellence, therefore, NDC asset renewal plans involve investment in new rigs as well as the modernisation of existing ones," NDC chief executive officer Abdalla Saeed Al Suwaidi was quoted as saying.
The work has commenced in the first project for rig Al-Hail in DDW and remaining projects will follow subsequently, said the report.
