Overseen by Al Yasat Petroleum Company, a collaboration between ADNOC and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), operations in the Belbazem area employ a forward-thinking strategy emphasizing operational integration, synergies, and the deployment of cutting-edge artificial intelligence and digital technologies to heighten efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability while curbing costs.

Abdul Moneim Saif Al Kindi, CEO of ADNOC's Exploration, Development, and Production Department, hailed the initiation of crude oil production from Belbazem as a testament to the fruitful partnership between ADNOC and CNPC, bolstering the enduring UAE-China bilateral ties. He underscored ADNOC's unwavering commitment to optimizing Abu Dhabi's resource value while minimizing environmental impact, ensuring a secure, dependable, and eco-conscious energy supply to both local and global clientele.

ADNOC's ambitious goal of reaching 5 million barrels per day by 2027 will be supported by Belbazem's expected production capacity, which is expected to rise gradually to 45,000 barrels per day of light crude oil and 27 million standard cubic feet per day of associated gas.

Al Yasat Petroleum leads the charge in employing AI-driven modeling and analysis tools to manage the offshore concession area effectively, leveraging technologies like Wellnsight, an AI tool developed by AIQ, to optimize reservoir data analysis and operational management, enhancing safety and performance in the Belbazem offshore domain. Plans are underway to integrate advanced technologies previously utilized in the Bu Haseer offshore field to bolster production and reservoir management in Belbazem.

Operating synergies between the Belbazem region and the Satah Al Razboot facilities, which are overseen by ADNOC Offshore, enable cost savings and reduce environmental impact. Belbazem, Umm Al-Salsal, and Umm Al-Dhulu' are three offshore fields that are situated 120 kilometers northwest of Abu Dhabi. These fields are strategically significant to ADNOC's efforts to optimize resources and provide sustainable energy.
