This strategic pipeline expansion will drive further growth for Adnoc Gas as it continues to provide a sustainable supply of gas in the UAE, supporting the company’s strategy to increase market share and expand its customer base.
Ahmed Mohamed Alebri, Chief Executive Officer of Adnoc Gas, said: “Our strategic network expansion will bring the advantages of low-cost, sustainable and clean gas to the world by enhancing industrial access to gas.
