ABU DHABI - Oil Refining Sector.

Abu Dhabi has a major oil refining sector which will be expanded. It has two oil refineries, one on the island of Umm Al Nar with a nameplate capacity of 85,000 b/d and one at Ruwais with a capacity of more than 680,000 b/d. Both are operated by the Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. (Takreer), a unit of state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC).

Dubai has a 120,000 b/d condensate splitter and an 18,000 b/d oil refinery. Sharjah has a small second-hand refinery installed in 1997. A small refining venture in Fujairah includes a 20,000 b/d condensate splitter (see 2002 survey of Dubai and the other UAE emirates in Vol. 58).

Abu Dhabi's developing industrial zone at Ruwais has a big petrochemicals export complex and the gas liquids plant there has been expanded for increased exports of LPG (see following articles). Takreer was created in June 1999 after a major restructuring of ADNOC (see OMT of this week).
