ADNOC has signed an agreement with Japan Cooperation Center Petroleum (JCCP) to enhance its oil spill capabilities “as part of an increased focus on sustainability and innovation”, it said in an online statement. 

With the aim of boosting ADNOC’s capabilities in the event of an oil spill, the agreement states Japan Cooperation Center Petroleum (JCCP), ADNOC and JCCP through COSMO Energy and Maritime Disaster Prevention Center will work together to develop tidal current surveys, oil drifting simulation, an environmental sensitivity index and a comprehensive oil spill response plan. 

The statement continues: “the agreement builds upon the strong relationship between the UAE and Japan. Japan is a key customer for ADNOC, and the Japanese oil company, JODCO, is a long-term partner and shareholder in a number of ADNOC onshore and offshore concessions.”
