The Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company (Takreer) was established in 1999 as a public joint-stock company to take over the responsibility of refining operations previously undertaken by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company(ADNOC).
The Company′s areas of operation include the refining of crude oil and condensate, supply of petroleum products, production of chlorine and related chemicals, and granulated sulphur in compliance with domestic and international specifications.
Takreer is responsible for developing the refining industry, which started with the establishment of Umm Al Nar Refinery in 1976 and Ruwais Refinery in 1982. The company is also in charge of implementing national strategies aimed at enhancing the role of downstream industries in the local economy.
Aiming at becoming a leader in the oil refining business, Takreer
is now working on expanding its activities in the downstream sector. It is also exerting all possible efforts to face the challenges of the 21st century in a rapidly-changing market. Besides meeting growing demand for enhanced products and services, the company is playing a positive role in advancing the local economy and boosting the national income.
In fact, Takreer is now in the process of implementing a series of new and ongoing projects that will help the company realize its goals for the future.
The company′s objectives for the new millennium include the task of fulfilling national aspirations for quality assurance and environmental protection. It is also keen on implementing national policies aimed at providing employment opportunities for the national workforce. To achieve that, Takreer has designed a number of special development programmes for UAE Nationals to provide them with the necessary skills to join the workforce.
