Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) is developing the Shah sour gas field along with the US’ Occidental Petroleum with the aim of producing up to 1,000 million cubic feet a day (cf/d) of gas to help boost total gas production to a targeted 6,000 million cf/d.

The gas will primarily be used as feedstock for new power, desalination and petrochemical plants in Abu Dhabi as well as the Northern Emirates and also for reinjection into oil fields to maintain reservoir pressure.
