Belbazem Offshore Block Commences Production in Abu Dhabi

On Wednesday, Adnoc announced the commencement of crude oil production from its Belbazem offshore block. Operated by Al Yasat Petroleum, a joint venture between Adnoc and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), this marks a significant milestone in the partnership between the UAE and China in the energy sector.

Adnoc's innovative approach to developing the Belbazem block involves utilizing operational synergies with adjacent fields, incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) and digitalization to enhance operational efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability while reducing costs and emissions.

Abdulmunim Saif Al Kindy, Adnoc's upstream executive director, underscored the success of the strategic partnership with CNPC, highlighting its role in advancing the UAE's energy goals. The commencement of production at Belbazem aligns with Adnoc's broader objective of reaching a production capacity of 5 million barrels per day (bpd) by 2027 and achieving gas self-sufficiency for the UAE.

Initially, production capacity at the Belbazem offshore block is expected to reach 45,000 bpd of light crude and 27 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of associated gas. This output will contribute significantly to meeting the UAE's energy needs and furthering its position as a reliable supplier of energy globally.

Moreover, Al Yasat Petroleum is pioneering the adoption of AI modeling and analysis tools across its offshore concession area. The implementation of tools like WellInsight, developed by AIQ, enables enhanced reservoir analysis and operational management, thereby optimizing production and reservoir performance.

Furthermore, the Belbazem block benefits from operational synergies by utilizing the existing facilities of the Satah Al Razboot (SARB) offshore field, operated by Adnoc Offshore. This integration results in cost savings and reduced environmental impact, reflecting Adnoc's commitment to sustainable practices.

Situated approximately 120 kilometers northwest of Abu Dhabi city, the Belbazem Block encompasses three offshore fields: Belbazem, Umm Al Salsal, and Umm Al Dholou. This development represents a crucial step forward in maximizing the value of Abu Dhabi's resources while ensuring a secure, reliable, and responsible supply of energy to meet domestic and international demand.
