OMV inks deal to evaluate several fields offshore Abu Dhabi

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), OMV, and Occidental Petroleum from the US have signed a contract over several undeveloped oil and gas fields in North-West Offshore Abu Dhabi including the Ghasha and Hail areas.

According to the Austrian company, an agreement was reached for conducting a four-year seismic, drilling and engineering work program for exploration, appraisal and potential field developments.

OMV and Occidental will also contribute with seconded personnel and technical expertise for the evaluation activities, OMV said.

The Austrian company also added that the cooperation aims to firm up the volume potential of the undeveloped North-West Offshore fields, to form the basis for the future development of the North-West Offshore area.

With this project, OMV noted the company was intensifying its strategic partnership with ADNOC alongside its existing participation in the appraisal of the sour gas Shuwaihat field and its East Abu Dhabi exploration activities.

OMV CEO, Rainer Seele, said: “We are pleased to expand our cooperation with ADNOC, together with Occidental, through the appraisal of a number of undeveloped fields which are of strategic importance to ADNOC. This cooperation will further strengthen our already excellent partnership with ADNOC.”
