ABL Group has been appointed as marine warranty surveyor to review and approve critical marine and offshore operations on the Belbazem Project, offshore UAE. 


“The Belbazem Block development is a prestigious project and we consider it a privilege to be appointed as the marine warranty surveyors,” says Paul Miles, ABL Group’s Head of Energy Services in the Middle East region.

The Belbazem Project, located 120 km north-west of Abu Dhabi, comprises three oil fields, which will each have installed an offshore wellhead tower to be connected by 60 kilometres of subsea pipeline and cables to the Zirku Island terminal in the Persian Gulf. Al Yasat Petroleum Operations Company Ltd. is the operator of the field development.

Under the scope, energy and marine consultancy ABL Group will provide marine warranty survey (MWS) services, including review and approval of critical marine and offshore operations including loadout, transportation and installation of the facilities which are being fabricated in Abu Dhabi.

ABL Group will maximise UAE in-country value by using its Abu Dhabi and Dubai offices to undertake the complete scope of MWS services, using locally based staff. 

Within UAE, ABL Group has a large and diverse team of master mariners, engineers and naval architects who combine to provide a complete service on similar large-scale energy transportation and installation (T&I) projects.  ABL Group has been a service provider to the energy and marine sectors in the UAE and Middle East region for more than 20 years.

“ABL Group has a global office footprint as we believe in a strategy of being close to our customers, thereby contributing to local job and value creation while solving challenging offshore and onshore challenges,” adds Paul Miles.

ABL Group has not disclosed the value of the contract.
