General Description
ADGAS was established to turn gas, extracted from Abu Dhabiís offshore field crude oil, into a new source of marketable energy. The fact that gases are no longer used as fuel for oil field flares has impacted positively on the environment.
Immediately after the establishment of the company, a plant, the first of its kind in the Middle East, was built with an annual designed capacity of 2.5 million tons to produce Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG),in addition to 800,000 tons per year of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).

An agreement was signed with the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) that allows the Japanese firm to import the plantís production for 20 years.
In March 1977, ADGAS was re-incorporated as a national entity in Abu Dhabi. The first shipment of LNG left Das Island that same year. Due to the plantís success in satisfying customer requirements, another agreement was signed with TEPCO in 1990 allowing ADGAS to double its production in 1994 and the Japanese Company to import its production for another 25 years.
As a result, the 3rd LNG Train, the largest of its kind in the world, was built adding another 2.5 million tons annually to the plantís production and doubling capacity. The Train, which was completed in 1994, incorporates the latest technologies, making it one of the most advanced in the world. Its compliance with safety standards has enhanced the companyís international reputation.

History
ADGAS was incorporated in 1973.
