Once merged, the company is expected to vand North Africa. NPCC was wholly acquired by ADQ earlier in the year, when it bought a final 30% stake from a minority shareholder.

In November 2019, NPCC revealed that it signed a $11 million investment partnership with Microsoft and AVEVA to boost its digitalisation efforts, enhancing internal and customer-facing systems. NPCC has established an in-house innovation team to spearhead the transformation, part of a five-year plan.
