Abdulrahman Abdullah Al Seiari, Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Drilling, commented: “I am very pleased with ADNOC Drilling’s performance in the first three months of 2022, where we reported strong and sustained revenue and earnings growth, increased our fleet to 104 owned rigs and were included in ADX’s new FADX 15 Index, underpinning the importance and attractiveness of ADNOC Drilling as a key constituent of Abu Dhabi’s capital market and the region’s drilling leader focused on achieving attractive shareholder returns.”
“As our revenues have grown, our profitability metrics have remained equally strong, with a market-leading EBITDA margin that is almost twice the industry average. At the same time, we are continuing to leverage our differentiated offering across the entire drilling value chain to further increase our share in the Integrated Drilling Services market, which stood at 45% at the end of the quarter. We look forward with confidence to the year ahead, as we deliver on our rig acquisition program and our investment in technology to unlock further growth.”

The company continues to focus on delivering the safe and efficient operations to which its customers have become accustomed, and this is resulting in continued improvements in safety performance and fleet utilization.
