ADNOC Drilling completes first offshore integrated drilling services well

ADNOC Drilling, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), has completed its first offshore integrated drilling services (IDS) well in Abu Dhabi’s Umm Lulu offshore oilfield.

The news follows the successful completion of 14 onshore IDS wells over the course of this year.

This first offshore IDS well delivered to ADNOC Drilling’s client, ADNOC Offshore – also a subsidiary of ADNOC – was completed ahead of schedule and within budget.

Abdulmunim Saif Al Kindy, ADNOC Upstream Executive Director, said: “Our first offshore IDS well and the 14 onshore IDS wells drilled over the course of this year have shown an increase in our drilling performance by about 25%, resulting in considerable cost savings and increased well profitability. The successful offshore well completion was delivered in record-breaking time, as were the previous onshore IDS wells.

“This milestone firmly positions ADNOC Drilling as a leading provider of comprehensive drilling and well construction services. It also positions ADNOC Drilling as the first national integrated drilling company in the region at an important time, when we are substantially expanding our oil production capacity, unlocking Abu Dhabi’s vast conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and driving efficiencies across all of our operations to deliver more value to the UAE and our partners.”

ADNOC plans to grow its conventional drilling activity by 40% by 2025 and substantially ramp up the number of its unconventional wells, as it targets an increase in oil production capacity to 4 million bpd by the end of 2020 and 5 million bpd by 2030.

Abdalla Saeed Al Suwaidi, CEO of ADNOC Drilling, said: “Extending our comprehensive oilfield service offering to offshore wells less than a year after commencement of our transformation to an IDS company is an important milestone for ADNOC. This achievement, which followed our strategic partnership with Baker Hughes, a GE company, further strengthens our pivotal role in enabling ADNOC’s planned increase of hydrocarbon production capacity across its onshore and offshore fields.”

ADNOC’s offshore fields contribute close to 50% of ADNOC’s daily oil production capacity.
