Abu Dhabi Oil & Gas Update: Security Passes for ADNOC Facilities

Companies that manufacture and sell products to Abu Dhabi’s state companies involved in power, water and petroleum may require their employees to access such facilities in order to provide installation, after-sales and maintenance services. Such access requires a security pass issued by the Critical National Infrastructure Authority (CNIA) of Abu Dhabi. The application procedures for receiving this security pass have recently become substantially more stringent.

Security Pass System in Abu Dhabi -

Abu Dhabi established the first public authority dedicated to infrastructure protection in 2007. Following an administrative restructuring in 2012, the CNIA was established as one successor to the previous authority, at which time it was placed under the jurisdiction of the Armed Forces General Directorate. The CNIA head office is at the Al Bateen Air Base on Airport Road in Abu Dhabi.
