To provide for UAE’s increasing domestic gas demand, ADNOC aims for additional oil and gas production via new developments. Under the lead of ADNOC and together with Occidental, OMV participates in a Technical Evaluation Agreement (TEA) of a number of undeveloped gas, gas/condensate and oil fields in the North West offshore region of Abu Dhabi. The area includes the Ghasha and Hail fields, which contain the largest undeveloped offshore reserves of the UAE.
The Technical Evaluation Agreement was signed in March 2016 for conducting a four-year work program. This includes diverse appraisal activities and engineering work to enable planning for potential field developments and establishing of a new regional gas infrastructure.
The project will provide a mid- and long term contribution to Abu Dhabi’s strategic targets to increase domestic gas production and replace reserves.
