Yaser Saeed Almazrouei, executive director of ADNOC’s Upstream Directorate, said, “This award marks another important milestone in the development of the Ghasha concession which is an integral component of our strategy to achieve gas self-sufficiency for the UAE. It demonstrates how ADNOC is effectively collaborating with strategic partners that can deploy technologies and world-class expertise to accelerate the development of Abu Dhabi’s substantial gas resources.

“Petrofac and Sapura Energy were selected to deliver this crucial project after an extremely competitive and rigorous tender process that ensures that 70 per cent of the award value will flow into the UAE’s economy as In-Country Value, stimulating local economic growth and supporting the diversification of the nation’s economy in line with the leadership’s wise directives.”
