One Day – One Country: United Arab Emirates (UAE)

BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, Total in concessions race

2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_ToolIn 2013, the historical international oil companies (IOCs) BP from UK, ExxonMobil from USA, Statoil from Norway, Partex from Portugal and Total from France have been racing  to at least preserve and hopefully extend in 2014 their respective concessions rights in the onshore fields of Abu Dhabi shared in joint venture with the national Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) in the United Arabe Emirates (UAE).

Abu Dhabi is by far the oil and gas richest Emirate within the seven emirates community of the UAE.

With proven reserves of 98 billion barrels of crude oil and 214 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of natural gas, the UAE stand in the fifth position for the oil and forth position for the gas in the Middle East by proven reserves.

ADCO_Onshore-Offshore_North_East_Bab_Phase_3_MapThe quality of these reserves and the stability of the country, the second largest economy in the region, put its concession under the spot lights for all the oil and gas companies.

These 75 years onshore concessions will end up in January 2014, so that ADNOC is currently evaluating the bids submitted by the invited companies to take over the new concessions.

The new concessions will take affect on January 2015.

The bidders had the options to call for 5% or 10% share while ADNOC should retain at least 60%.

Most of the future developments will be related to mature fields or high sulfur content gas and unconventional oil and gas reserves. 

Therefore the expertise and technology will count on ADNOC decision, beyond the financial and political aspects.

So new companies such as Statoil or Wintershall should take their stake of the cake beside the re-elected majors among which, BP, ExxonMobil, Shell and Total should stand up again.
