Ghasha: oil&gas strengthen our presence in the United Arab Emirates

In 2018, we acquired a 25% stake in the concession in the United Arab Emirates which includes the Hail, Ghasha and Dalma fields.

The mega project in offshore Abu Dhabi

Hail, Ghasha and Dalma are located in the Al Dhafra region and will tap into the Arab basin, which is estimated to contain several trillion standard cubic feet of recoverable gas. The project will produce more than 1.5 billion cubic feet of gas per day (bcfd). Once completed, Ghasha will also produce more than 120,000 barrels of high-value oil and condensates per day.  In 2019 the final investiment decision for Ghasha project is taken. During 2021 the Dalma Gas Development was sanctioned. 

Safety first

Safety in the workplace is an imperative value we want to share with our employees, contractors and local stakeholders. We are committed to eliminate accidents and protect the integrity of our assets. We consolidate a culture of safety through management and organization models, digital tools and communication initiatives. Our goal is strengthening the awareness of our people and their sense of responsibility toward themselves and others, by expanding HSE tools and digitalization to make corporate processes safer, more efficient and faster. 

Environment and community

The gas produced by the Hail, Ghasha and Dalma fields could satisfy more than 20 per cent of the demand of the UAE. We have never undertaken exploration or development work for hydrocarbons within the boundaries of natural sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list. In May 2019, we formally committed never to do so and officially instated a biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) policy – this had previously been followed in our operations and constitutes part of our transformation path. We are committed to long-term investment – looking beyond short-term profit to find ways to help create a more sustainable planet – as recognised in our new company mission, in turn inspired by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
