In the early seventies, and during a visit to an oil production facility, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan noticed the flaring of associated gas into the atmosphere and inquired how this can be stopped. This was the background against which ADGAS was established in 1973 to become the first LNG production company in the whole Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. An agreement was signed to supply LNG and LPG to the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). The Company started with two production trains and added a third one in 1994 with a total production of over 8 million tons of LNG, LPG, and other products.
For the past four decades, ADGAS has been the regional pioneer in LNG and LPG production and marketing, thanks to the company’s compliance with the best international practices in the fields of industrial reliability and integrity, building on the history and expertise of its shareholders, ADNOC, Mitsui & Co. Ltd., BP and Total.
