Recently, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) announced on behalf of the UAE's Supreme Petroleum Council the details of the first ever competitive bid round for new licensing opportunities for the exploration, development and production of oil and gas in the Emirate.
Six blocks have been announced for commercially competitive bidding in this first round, two of which are offshore and four are onshore. The area ranges from 2500 to 6,300 km2 and the total area is about 30,000 km2. Following the bid round, the successful bidders will enter agreements that, providing defined targets are achieved in the exploration phase, will give them the opportunity to then develop and produce any discoveries with ADNOC, under terms that will be set out in the bidding package.
ADNOC has established a dedicated website for bidding (www.adnoc.ae/Block-Bid). The deadline for receiving bids is October 2018, after which ADNOC will conduct bid evaluation. The first round of bidding will end at the end of 2018.
The UAE is the world’s seventh largest oil producer, with 96% of its reserves within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. It is located in one of the world’s largest hydrocarbon super-basins where there remains significant undiscovered and undeveloped potential in the numerous stacked reservoirs.
Based on existing data from detailed petroleum system studies, seismic surveys, log files and core samples from hundreds of appraisal wells, estimates suggest these new blocks hold multiple billion barrels of oil and multiple trillion cubic feet of natural gas. In addition to the country’s conventional potential, the offered blocks also contain significant unconventional resources.
