Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has awarded framework agreements worth $1.94bn (AED7.1bn) in total, for wireline logging and perforation services.
The framework agreements have been awarded to Schlumberger Middle East, Adnoc Drilling, Haliburton Worldwide Limited Abu Dhabi, and the Weatherford Bin Hamoodah Company.
The awards form part of Adnoc’s plan to enable drilling growth while contributing to its aim of increasing its crude oil production capacity to five million barrels per day (MMbpd) by 2030.
Adnoc Drilling will be responsible for delivering covers services, including cased hole and open hole, as well as perforation.
Adnoc managing director and group CEO and UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber said: “The framework agreements announced today are a continuation of ADNOC’s unprecedented investment in services to enable the expansion of drilling activity required to responsibly unlock the UAE’s leading low-cost and low-carbon intensity oil, as well as the nation’s gas resources.
“Not only do these awards support our 2030 strategy, they are expected to deliver over 80% of in-country value to the UAE, and align with the UAE’s ‘Principles of the 50’ economic blueprint for sustainable growth.”
