Oil exploration and production of hydrocarbons in the UAE
In 2014, upon the expiry of the foreign concessions on the development of oilfields of the country, Abu Dhabi gained total control over the oil production on its territory.
The UAE focus their efforts on the development of infrastructure and the use of advanced technologies for oil production in the already developed (mature) oilfields. Upper Zakum offshore project, carried out as a joint venture of ADNOC, ExxonMobil and Dzhodko, aims to increase crude oil production volume at the oilfield Zakum to 200,000 barrels of oil per day.
The increase in production is also expected in the oil fields, located in the coastal zone, which includes the Bu Hasa, Bab and Asab, as well as the north-eastern oilfields Al Dibiya, Rumaita and Shanatet. The Government hopes that the increase of the industrial potential, stemming from oil production, will put the United Arab Emirates abreast with some of the major manufacturers, strengthening the role and influence of this Arab nation in the Middle East region. Anyway, according to recent studies, the current state of the nation's economy doesn't seem to justify the expectations.
