According to media sources, the United Arab Emirates is aiming to lift their crude oil production to around 3.5 million barrels/day as of 2017-2018. The country’s current oil production stands at 2.8 million barrels/day.

A source from Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (ADNOC) commented that the United Arab Emirates plans to invest over 25 billion dollars to boost their oil production capacity in off-shore oil fields over the next five years. The plan is part of the UAE’s strategy of increasing its crude oil output potential to 3.5 million barrels/day by 2017-2018.

Qasem al-Kayoumi, manager of ADNOC’s offshore division of the exploration and production directorate, commented that ADNOC plans to drill around 160 wells per year in the next couple of years.
