UAE-based oil and gas engineering service provider National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the French engineering & technology company Technip Energies to accelerate energy transition in Emirates and other countries in the MENA region.

There is unprecedented momentum in the industry for clean energy with the commitment to energy transition and decarbonization. The goal of this deal is to explore and capitalize on this evolving opportunity and offer added value services. Further, Technip Energies and NPCC will establish a Joint Venture (JV) to accelerate the energy transition journey.

According to the company, both firms will provide complimentary added value to the JV, as they have worked together for more than three decades. NPCC will provide its project management skills for EPC projects, while Technip Energies will bring its technological know-how, overall project management capabilities, and innovative solutions from early-stage to project delivery.
