Capitalizing on ADNOC's ambitious expansion strategy

A unique mandate and unmatched financial profile in the drilling industry​

High visibility, captive growth, substantial earnings and cash flow generation

Drilling is a strategic business of the oil and gas value chain and ADNOC Drilling is a key asset of ADNOC, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, whose mission is to manage the vast hydrocarbon reserves and main source of income of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. As the sole provider of drilling services in Abu Dhabi, we benefit from a unique relationship and a contractual framework with the Group that provides us with an unmatched visibility on our long-term top line growth, returns and cash flow generation.

At the heart of the ADNOC upstream ecosystem, we have, since 1972, built an impressive track record of strong operational and financial performance. Today, as the first national integrated drilling services provider in the region, we are adding a full range of oil field services to our original drilling offering, and are in an advantageous position to serve ADNOC’s ambitious long-term plans to further increase its crude production and to unlock new unconventional gas resources.
