Adnoc Gas remains focused on investments that will drive sustainable growth for its business, aligned with customer demand. In 2023, It has maintained a strong sales momentum signing several LNG agreements valued between US$9.4 billion and US$12 billion, while continuing to invest domestically to position itself to meet both local and international demand for natural gas.

Natural gas plays a crucial role as a transitional fuel, with lower carbon emissions compared to other fossil fuels. It also serves as an important raw material in industrial value chains.
The company continues to leverage opportunities arising from Adnoc’s integrated gas masterplan, which links every part of the gas value chain in the UAE, ensuring a sustainable and economic supply of natural gas to meet local and international demand.
Adnoc is progressing a new low-carbon Ruwais LNG project, currently under development in Al Ruwais Industrial City, Abu Dhabi. The Ruwais LNG project is set to be the first LNG export facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to run on clean power, making it one of the lowest-carbon intensity LNG plants in the world, supporting Adnoc’s accelerated Net Zero by 2045 ambition. When completed, the project, is expected to consist of two 4.8 million tonnes/year LNG liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 9.6 million tonnes/year.
