Who We Are

Who We Are


We are the largest drilling company in the Middle East, and operate an expansive fleet of rigs that includes 63 onshore rigs, 20 offshore jackup rigs, and 11 island rigs.

We were established in 1972 and were the first venture under full ADNOC ownership. Today, we provide drilling rigs and associated services to ADNOC Group companies. Our role in helping the Group to reach its production targets makes us a crucial link in ADNOC’s upstream value chain. 

Since our first rigs were acquired in 1973, our fleet has delivered over 9,000 wells. The total distance drilled is more than 65 million feet, which exceeds the  diameter of the earth.

ADNOC Drilling has grown continuously over the last four decades, acquiring new rigs, investing in the latest technologies, and building a reputation as a leading and reliable provider of well drilling and servicing. Our long-term aim is to continue to provide the best support for ADNOC Group by maintaining our competitive edge, strengthening our rig fleet, expanding our service offering, and enhancing our efficiency and profitability.
