For generations, we have made a positive and lasting contribution to the growth and the development of our nation. We began as an upstream onshore and offshore operation in oil and gas and quickly expanded into a group of companies that is generating energy for life. We now operate downstream, unlock new gas resources, and are equipped with strong marketing, supply and trading capabilities, ultimately creating new economic opportunities for the UAE and its people.
Our journey began in 1935 when the first geological survey took place. In 1937, our Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, led an expedition of 16 tribesmen to the south-west of Abu Dhabi, where his vision for the development of the UAE’s oil and gas resources was born. He steered us in the right path, foreseeing abundant possibilities that lay ahead of us if we harness the rich hydrocarbon resources effectively.
