Adnoc confirmed production on 2 July, marking Al Dhafra’s first output in the emirate. Output is slated to reach 40,000 b/d by the end of the year, which is an advance on previous plans where this benchmark was to be hit in 2020 (MEES, 16 February 2018). Adnoc is targeting a capacity increase from 3.5mn b/d to 4mn b/d by end-2020.
