Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has awarded a contract worth AED5.62 billion ($1.53 billion) to ADNOC Drilling, according to WAM, the UAE’s state-owned news agency

The two-year contract covers the provision of 12 jack-up rigs and two island rigs, as well as associated integrated drilling services.

Over 80 percent of the award value will flow back into the UAE’s economy under ADNOC’s in-country value programme, supporting local economic growth and diversification.

Since ADNOC Drilling launched its integrated drilling services offering in 2018, the company has enabled more than AED917.5 million in savings for its customers, the statement said.
