TWMA recognised for Middle East partnership at ADNOC HSE Awards

TWMAGlobal integrated drilling waste management and environmental services firm TWMA has won the Company & Contractor Partnership Award at this year’s ADNOC HSE Awards, in partnership with Abu Dhabi-based petroleum services company ESNAAD-PJS

The category recognises an outstanding partnership in the implementation of HSE and was awarded to TWMA in recognition of its integrated drilling waste management services on all four of the ZADCO artificial islands.

TWMA general manager Abu Dhabi Robbie Pond said, “At TWMA, HSE is central to all we do, so it is a fantastic achievement to be recognised for our integrated drilling waste management service on the ZADCO artificial islands. We recently reached 500,000 lost time incident (LTI) free man hours on this project which is a significant milestone for the team and testimony to our continued commitment to a strong safety culture.

“The aim of this project was to commission and operate an advanced solids control and fluid recovery system to handle and treat drill cuttings on the ZADCO artificial islands, which was the first of its kind in the UAE. We have built and maintained a strong relationship with ESNAAD over the past four years, and being chosen to support this project is a reflection of our ability to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions.“

ESNAAD’s business development department manager Mohamad Kamal Abdallah added, “As an ADNOC Group Company, ESNAAD follows the ADNOC Code of Practice and this award is testimony to the effective and efficient cooperation between ESNAAD and TWMA in delivering a world-class service and operational excellence in the oil and gas industry, in line with ADNOC’s vision. ESNAAD and TWMA jointly deserve this recognition for their strong commitment to HSE.”

Since TWMA won the north and south ZADCO island contracts in 2013, the company’s Abu Dhabi branch has grown significantly and now employs more than 200 members of staff in the region following the subsequent contract wins for the Central and West islands.

TWMA’s group HSE manager Brian Scott noted, “We are delighted the team in Abu Dhabi have adopted our focus on HSE and transferred it directly to their operations in the region. Maintaining the highest of HSE standards throughout such a rapid growth period was very important to us.”

UAE Minister of State and ADNOC CEO HE Dr Sultan Al-Jaber has reaffirmed the company’s unwavering commitment to the highest standards of health, safety and environmental protection, describing the company’s industry leading HSE practices as fundamental to maintaining ADNOC’s competitive edge.

He said that ADNOC has always been at the industry forefront of HSE. He stressed the vital role HSE plays in ADNOC’s strategy, saying it provides the foundation for ADNOC’s status as a world class energy company.

“We have embarked on a journey to build on the ADNOC Group’s proud legacy of success. As we go forward, one thing will always remain true – our unwavering commitment to the highest standards of HSE protection.

“By keeping an uncompromising focus on health, safety and the environment, we will, by definition, be more efficient and more profitable. And by safeguarding our most precious resource, our people, we will also ensure our companies perform better,” Al-Jaber added.
