The Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) operates onshore and in shallow coastal water of the Emirates of Abu Dhabi.
The Company operates and produces oil mainly from five fields Asab, Bab, Bu Hasa, Sahil and Shah.
These fields are linked to the storage and shipping facilities located at Jabel Dhana, where tankers load crude oil for export to markets in various parts of the world. Oil production comes also from four other oil fields: Jarn Yaphoure, Al Dabb’iya, Rumaitha and Shanayel.
During 1998, Sahil oil field was developed and ADCO increased the operating land rigs to 12, all owned by the National Drilling Company.
The original concession agreement was signed in January 1939 with Petroleum Development (Trucial Coast). In 1962, the Company became known as the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Company Ltd. (ADPC), and in 1979, it became known as the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO).
In 1999 the Asab Gas Gathering & Injection (AGGI) Project encompassed many other related activities which demonstrated ADNOC Group of Companies quality sharing of services.
