We were established in 1972 and were the first venture under full ADNOC ownership. Today, we provide drilling rigs and associated services to ADNOC Group companies. Our role in helping the Group to reach its production targets makes us a crucial link in ADNOC’s upstream value chain.
Since our first rigs were acquired in 1973, our fleet has drilled over 8,000 wells. The total distance drilled is more than 50 million feet, which exceeds the earth’s diameter.
ADNOC Drilling has grown continuously over the last four decades, acquiring new rigs, investing in the latest technologies, and building a reputation as a leading and reliable provider of well drilling and servicing. Our long-term aim is to continue to support ADNOC Group by maintaining our competitive edge, strengthening our rig fleet, expanding our service offering, and enhancing efficiency and profitability.
