Abu Dhabi Petroleum Council implements ADNOC ship vetting system

The Abu Dhabi Supreme Petroleum Council has issued Circular 2/2005 implementing an ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) specific ship vetting system which became effective on 1 March 2005. This requires all ships calling at Abu Dhabi ports to be assessed, screened and vetted prior to being engaged in any business with the ADNOC Group or its affiliated companies. 

To manage the impact on ADNOC business and that of its industrial shareholders and customers, ADNOC has based its initial assessment on the latest available SIRE inspection reports to establish a common ground and a clear set of terms of references. Ships not having a valid report less than one year old will have to be inspected by ADNOC's accredited SIRE inspectors. ADNOC will charge for such an inspection. 

Enquires regarding the ADNOC system should be directed to Capt Fekry, Manager Marine Risk Assurance, Supreme Petroleum Council, Petroleum Ports Authority, P.O. Box 898Abu Dhabi, UAE. Tel: (971 2) 6024006/6656081, E-mail: gfekry@adnoc.com

We thank ADNOC for permitting us to circulate this information.
