Adnoc Drilling Company has been awarded a five-year framework contract worth $1.6 billion for integrated drilling fluids services to support the expansion of Adnoc’s lower-cost and lower-carbon intensive production capacity, as it continues to respond to growing global demand for energy.
The award covers Adnoc’s onshore and offshore fields and will see an additional $750 million above guidance added to Oilfield Services (OFS) revenue, or $150 million per year.
The contract award brings the total value of awards confirmed by Adnoc Drilling in 2022 to $8.85 billion, of which $1.15 billion has been incremental to the Company’s previously disclosed revenue guidance.
Adnoc Drilling CEO Abdulrahman Abdullah Al Seiari said: "Integrated drilling fluids services are crucial in support of delivering the wells needed to meet Adnoc’s strategy to increase its production capacity and achieve gas self-sufficiency for the UAE."
"This award, one of several multi-billion dollar long-term contracts that we have secured in 2022, reaffirms our strategic value to Adnoc not just as a drilling provider but as a major OFS player," he stated.
Al Seiari pointed out that contracts of this scale helps the group to ensure that it delivers strong and sustained growth for the UAE and Adnoc Drilling’s shareholders.
"The addition of $750 million in above-guidance revenue solidifies that growth trajectory," he stated.
According to him, Adnoc Drilling remains committed to expanding its offering to further capitalize on market opportunities.
The company plans to double its OFS revenues by 2025, and this IDFS award will accelerate its ability to achieve and exceed that target, he added.
