, 19 days ago

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has presented Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region, with an overview of several strategic projects underway at the Bu Hasa field.
 
The presentation focused on initiatives aimed at achieving growth, enhancing efficiency, and reducing emissions in the oil and gas sector.
 
The key highlights of the presentation included plans to increase production capacity from 650,000 barrels per day to over 790,000 barrels per day by 2027.
 
Additionally, Adnoc aims to raise associated gas production from 650 million cubic feet per day to more than 800 million cubic feet per day during the same period. These ambitious targets will contribute significantly to meeting the growing energy demands of the region.
 
Adnoc also outlined its strategic projects that include providing sustainable water supplies to the Bu Hasa and Bab fields. Other strategic projects include utilising treated seawater instead of groundwater in the Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes, reducing energy consumption and emissions, and the project to employ water and gas injection technologies into reservoirs to enhance production. This is in addition to a proposed joint project to develop a bromine production facility, used in drilling fluids.
 
Also, Sheikh Hamdan learned about the artificial intelligence and advanced technology techniques and tools used by Adnoc in monitoring operations and production processes in the field, which is considered one of the largest onshore production fields in the country and one of the 20 largest oil fields in the world in terms of proven oil reserves.
 
This includes the use of digital well solutions, autonomous operations and remote monitoring technologies, and the development of the first AI-based advanced process control system in collaboration with AIQ, and the use of UAE-made drones to detect potential greenhouse gas leaks, and to conduct accurate site and infrastructure inspections, as well as the use of electric submersible pumps connected to AI tools to help reduce downtime and improve operational efficiency.
 
Accompanying Sheikh Hamdan on the visit were Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Yas bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Nasser Mohammed Al Mansouri, Under-Secretary of the Ruler's Representative's Court in the Al Dhafra Region, and Issa Hamad Bushahab, Advisor to His Highness the Ruler's Representative in the Al Dhafra Region, along with several officials.
 
“I'm delighted to learn about Adnoc's ongoing efforts to solidify the UAE's leadership in global energy security. Their commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 is commendable. By empowering Emirati talent and deploying advanced AI and digital solutions in the energy sector, Adnoc is ensuring increased production efficiency, reduced emissions, and optimal utilisation of our national resources," said Sheikh Hamdan.
 
During his meeting with Adnoc's national staff, His Highness conveyed to them the greetings of His Highness President Sheikh Mohamed, stressing on His Highness's keenness to provide all means of success for them to ensure their active contribution to the path of growth and prosperity of the country. Sheikh Hamdan emphasised on the importance of Emirati women's participation across various sectors, including the energy sector, highlighting their proven ability and success in tackling diverse tasks within this field.
 
He praised the pivotal role played by the Emirati female cadres working in the Bu Hasa field, where they contribute through their different positions to the implementation of Adnoc's plans to enhance efficiency, raise productivity and reduce emissions through the use of AI applications and tools and advanced technologies.
 
Upon his arrival at the Bu Hasa field, Sheikh Hamdan was received by Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Managing Director and Group CEO of Adnoc, and the company's executive management team.
 
For his part, Dr Sultan Al Jaber said: "We highly appreciate the visit of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the Bu Hasa field, which reflects the leadership's keenness to follow up on all projects that contribute to strengthening sustainable economic and social development.
 
He added: "Adnoc, a leading integrated energy company, is undergoing a significant transformation. By leveraging the latest advancements in AI technologies, Adnoc aims to accelerate progress on the company's ambitious strategy. This includes reducing emissions, ensuring operational sustainability, and staying at the forefront of the industry. To achieve this, Adnoc is investing in developing the company's national workforce, building a diverse and highly skilled team to deliver more energy with lower emissions, to meet the ever-growing global demand." --OGN/TradeArabia News Service
