United Arab Emirates' Energy Minister Suhail al-Mazrouei said on Nov. 23 the latest oil discoveries are part of state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co.'s efforts to increase production capacity to 5 million barrels per day (MMbbl/d) by 2030.
The UAE on Nov. 22 announced the discovery of two billion barrels (Bbbl) of conventional oil reserves and 22 Bbbl of unconventional oil reserves.
The discoveries “reflect the constant development operations carried out by ADNOC in its endeavor to reach its target of increasing oil production capacity to 5 MMbbl/d by 2030,” Mazrouei said on his ministry’s Twitter account.
Houston-based KBR facilitated the deal with Proserv aimed at boosting oil production capabilities at a key Iraqi asset.
As oil and gas fields become depleted, energy companies are looking at how they can extend the life of operating fields, unlocking low-pressure reserves from reservoirs to maintain plateau production rates.
