We operate responsibly on land, at sea and on ADNOC’s unique artificial islands off Abu Dhabi’s coastline, delivering start-to-finish well drilling and construction across both conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
We have the largest fleet of 96 rigs in the Middle East and a dedicated workforce of 7,000 engineers, specialists and technicians, who, together, contribute to help maintain ADNOC’s status as one of the lowest-cost oil producers in the world.
Our Onshore fleet consists of 65 land rigs of varying specifications, including several high-capacity workover rigs, empowering us to drill a wide range of oil and gas wells and handle the most challenging drilling programs effectively and efficiently by minimizing non-productive time and maintaining the highest standards of health and safety.
Our offshore fleet of 20 jackup rigs outfitted with high specification equipment and capable of drilling in 200 feet of water and with to a depth of 30,000 feet.
ADNOC Drilling has the largest fleet of drilling rigs in the Middle East. Each of our 95 rigs is designed to drill for oil and gas but they’re not all the same.
Some of our newest, most-technologically advanced rigs were built in the UAE. This was a first for a country in the Middle East and an example of how ADNOC Drilling invests considerably in the country’s economy.
As ADNOC’s first subsidiary, for nearly 50 years ADNOC Drilling has drilled wells to enable ADNOC to sustainably unlock Abu Dhabi’s oil and gas wealth for the benefit of the nation. We have done so by reinforcing ADNOC’s long-standing commitment to environmental and social stewardship across our areas of operation.
At ADNOC Drilling we are set on a path of expansion and growth that is built on nearly 50 years of reliable and robust performance as ADNOC’s exclusive drilling partner.
With plans to further grow our rig fleet, enhance services and expand domestic and regional operations, we continue to enhance the way we work, leveraging smart drilling techniques and engineering solutions, building our capabilities so we can strive to be even more cost efficient as we drill more wells.
