As the country’s oldest oil production company, our operations date back to 1939, when a 75-year concession was signed to explore for oil and gas in Abu Dhabi.
In 1950, we drilled our first exploration well at Ra’s Sadr, followed by a second in 1958, which led to the first discovery of oil in the country. In 1960, the first commercial discovery of Murban crude was announced, in what is now the BAB oil field.
Our concession area spans 12,000 km2, and we operate 11 oil and gas fields across four assets: Bab, North East Bab (NEB), Bu Hasa, and South East (SE). We also operate two export terminals in Jebel Dhanna and Fujairah, as well as a vast pipeline network through which oil is transported from the oil fields.
