ADNOC Drilling, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), announced completing its first ‘integrated drilling services’ well in the Al Dabbyia onshore field, ADNOC reported on March 31.

“The transformation of ADNOC Drilling into a fully integrated drilling and well-completion company is part of ADNOC’s group-wide transformation to ensure it thrives in the evolving energy landscape and takes advantage of new market opportunities,” Abdulmunim Al Kindy, ADNOC Upstream Executive Director, said.

The well was the first to be drilled in a fully integrated way within budget. It was delivered to the ADNOC Onshore after announcing a partnership with Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), which supports the growth and development strategies of ADNOC Drilling.

This movement comes in line with ADNOC’s conventional drilling plan to enhance its activities by 40% by 2025, as well as the company’s strategy to increase its unconventional wells to reach four million barrels per day (b/d) by the end of 2020 and five million b/d by 2030.
