In a joint effort to boost maritime safety and to enhance Abu Dhabi’s maritime regulations, Abu Dhabi Maritime and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) have signed a five-year agreement with the aim of enhancing the safety of Abu Dhabi’s waterways.
The agreement will allow for the enhanced exchange of information, data and expertise concerning the regulation and management of maritime activities, infrastructure developments and facilities across Abu Dhabi’s waterways. Both parties will implement monitoring, risk-mitigation, business continuity and crisis management systems through coordinated development plans, as well as marine traffic and infrastructure projects within Abu Dhabi’s waters.
The aim is to develop environmentally friendly and efficient rules and regulations to govern the safe passage of maritime traffic within Abu Dhabi’s ports and waterways.
ADNOC is a leading contributor to Abu Dhabi’s maritime sector providing shipping, maritime, port, logistics and oil field services for its customers by operating dedicated petroleum ports located in Jebel Dhanna, Ruwais, Das, Zirku and Mubarraz. Captain Jasim Al Khamiri, Senior Vice President for the Petroleum Ports Authority unit at ADNOC, said: “We are pleased to work in partnership with Abu Dhabi Maritime as we aim to secure safe waterways and to ensure sustainable traffic flow, particularly for products from the oil and gas industry.”
