He further added that the company plans to build on the strong foundation it has created in Ruwais to develop the world’s largest integrated refining and chemical site, tripling petrochemicals production capacity to 14.4mn tonnes by 2025.

Inviting the financial community to join ADNOC on its journey and support its efforts in driving efficiency, enhancing performance and embedding a commercial mindset across its business, Dr Al Jaber stressed that ADNOC’s downstream expansion would introduce new business and investment opportunities to a new category of investors, with a diverse range of growth, risk profiles, returns and yield.
