Oil & Gas in Abu Dhabi’s offshore for source diversification

The Ghasha mega gas project consists of the Hail, Ghasha and Dalma fields. Thanks to the 40-year concession in these fields, we are able to tap into the resources of the Arabian Basin, which is estimated to contain several trillion standard cubic feet of recoverable gas.


The production target at start-up is set at more than 1.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day so as to be able to meet more than 20% of the demand for gas in the United Arab Emirates, thus guaranteeing more than 120,000 barrels per day of high-value oil and condensate.
