We are the largest oil producer within the ADNOC Group, accounting for over half of the UAE’s total oil production. As the country’s oldest oil production company, our operations date back to 1939, when a 75-year concession was signed to explore for oil and gas in Abu Dhabi.
In 1950, we drilled our first exploration well at Ra’s Sadr, followed by a second in 1958, which led to the first discovery of oil in the country. In 1960, the first commercial discovery of Murban crude was announced, in what is now the BAB oil field.
We have the capacity to produce about 2 million barrels of oil and about 7 billion cubic feet of gas per day, making us a key enabler for gas self-sufficiency for the UAE in line with ADNOC’s integrated gas strategy.
Our concession area spans more than 20,000 km, and we operate 11 oil and gas fields across four assets: BAB, NEB, Bu Hasa, and South East Asset (SEA). We also operate two export terminals in Jebel Dhanna and Fujairah, as well as a vast pipeline network through which oil is transported from the oil fields.
