CEO Message

ADNOC Refining forms the foundation of ADNOC's downstream business. We play a crucial role in converting our country's crude oil into a range of consumable products. Our refinery in Ruwais serves as the beating heart of the network, operating day and night to provide essential products to our customers worldwide. Our pipeline network act as the arteries of Abu Dhabi, stretching hundreds of miles to supply fuel to the emirate's critical infrastructure.

Our scale, expertise, and location allow us to rapidly meet customer needs across Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. We are also dedicated to fulfilling the demands of our clients from further afield. 

ADNOC Refining is a company in the midst of monumental change. Since 2019, we've been operating as a joint venture in partnership with the European energy giants Eni and OMV. Some of the brightest minds from both now work hand-in-glove with us to utilize the full potential of our world-class assets. Together, we're formulating new ways to boost efficiency and performance while remaining steadfast in our commitment towards 100% HSE.

By 2022 we will significantly diversify the feedstock we refine as part of our Crude Flexibility Project. The completion of our Waste Heat Recovery Project the following year will allow us to reuse heat generated by turbines at our power plant to produce 230 megawatt (MW) of additional power and over sixty-thousand cubic meters of water every day. Scientists at our dedicated research and development center continue to work around the clock, experimenting with catalysts, machine learning systems, and other innovations to ensure that we remain at the pioneering edge of our industry. 

We will play a pivotal role in bringing ADNOC's broader 2030 strategy to fruition. We will foster the continued development of Ruwais at home, and we will strengthen ADNOC's performance abroad. Yet, while we look to the future with global ambitions, we remain forever respectful of our local roots. We recognize that being responsible custodians of the country's energy resources means more than just making money; our worth is also valued by the impact we have on the lives of our fellow citizens. With this in mind, we seek to hire talented UAE Nationals and develop those with promise into the leaders of tomorrow. 

Mr. Abdulla Ateya Al Messabi
