The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is prioritizing waterflood management as it pushes ahead with its $132 billion plan for significant expansion of its oil and gas production. The funds will be used to position the NOC to produce the recently discovered 15 trillion ft3 of gas and 1 billion barrels of oil, which was announced by the emirate’s Supreme Petroleum Council on November 4th. During his keynote presentation at the Produced Water Middle East conference, Qasem Al Kayoumi, Technical Center Manager at ADNOC, said sea water for onshore flooding and better reservoir management are critical strategies for the future. The company currently produces 3.5 million barrels of oil per day. Their 5-year plan would see this increased to 4 million bpd by 2020 and sets sights on 5 million bpd by 2030, as well as making ADNOC a net gas exporter.
