(WO) — ADNOC, a reliable and responsible provider of lower-carbon intensity energy, has announced the formation of ADNOC Gas, its new world-scale gas processing, operations and marketing company. The flagship company combines ADNOC’s gas process and LNG business’ operations, maintenance and marketing into one global market-leading consolidated business.

As ADNOC grows its gas production and processing capacity, the combined scale and capabilities of ADNOC Gas will maximize value and create new opportunities for ADNOC, its partners and the UAE. As a leading global player with a capacity of roughly 10 Bcfgd, ADNOC Gas will serve a wider range of domestic and international customers with an expanding portfolio of gas products.

Natural gas is a lower-carbon fuel and will play a vital role in a responsible energy transition. Demand for natural gas is expected to increase steadily over the coming decades. Global gas demand is driven by industrial and manufacturing growth and the replacement of more carbon-intensive fuels, such as coal, in international markets.

The UAE and ADNOC are well-placed to take advantage of this opportunity, given its significant gas reserves, a strong heritage of successfully developing gas projects and a proven track record as a reliable energy supplier.

The consolidated ADNOC Gas business is expected to unlock significant financial and operational opportunities. The new company will be more agile, better able to respond to changing market demands, and well-positioned to take advantage of strategic opportunities for future growth. This includes the delivery of critical capital growth projects that will increase the company’s gas processing capabilities and its intended growth in LNG.

As one of the world’s leading gas companies, ADNOC Gas will operate eight processing sites onshore and offshore with a pipeline network of over 3,250km.
