ADNOC starts up US$10bn Al Hosn Shah sour gas development project

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has opened the US$10 billion (£7 billion) Al Hosn Shah sour gas development project.

The development, located 210km south-west of Abu Dhabi, is a joint venture between ADNOC and Occidental Petroleum.

The Shah gas field is expected to produce more than one billion cubic feet of ultra-sour gas per day.

Half of the gas produced from this field will be used in the UAE’s gas transmission network, which will help to address the increasing gas demand in the country.
