Total awarded 10% in new 40-year ADCO concession

Total has signed a new 40-year onshore concession agreement with the Supreme Petroleum Council of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC), granting Total a 10% participating interest effective Jan. 1. The concession covers the 15 principal onshore oil fields of Abu Dhabi and represents more than half of the Emirate’s production.

The new concession will be operated by the Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations Ltd. (ADCO), a new operating company in which Total will be a 10% shareholder. Total has also been appointed asset leader for the Bu Hasa and Southeast (Sahil, Asab, Shah, Qusahwira, and Mender fields) fields, which represent about two-thirds of ADCO’s production.

In 2015, ADCO’s expected production is around 1.6 million barrels of oil per day (Mb/d), with an objective to increase output to 1.8 Mb/d from 2017.
