About Al Yasat Petroleum

We are ADNOC's youngest operating company. We are the first joint venture between ADNOC and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), established in 2014.

Al Yasat’s role is to explore oil and gas potential within the company’s mandated concession areas, and to develop prospective locations on behalf of the company’s shareholders. ADNOC is the majority shareholder and owns 60% of the company, with CNPC owning the remaining 40%.  

Our ability to draw on the expertise and experience of larger upstream operating companies within the ADNOC Group, in addition to that of our international shareholders, places Al Yasat at a distinct advantage. We take an entrepreneurial approach to future value delivery from Abu Dhabi’s onshore and offshore reserves.

Al Yasat comprises a highly professional team of direct hires plus ADNOC and CNPC secondees, working as a unified team. We place a strong emphasis on developing female leadership in both technical and non-technical roles, in line with ADNOC’s commitment to gender diversity. We have the highest percentage of female leaders within ADNOC Group, including the first female Senior Vice President in Operations.
