In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Occidental is a partner in a 30-year joint venture with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) on Adnoc Sour Gas, one of the largest natural gas developments in the Middle East. Occidental holds a 40-percent participating interest in the development, which is located in the Shah Field. Adnoc Sour Gas also features processing facilities to extract sulfur from natural gas and process it for sale.
Adnoc Sour Gas, formerly known as Al Hosn Gas, became fully operational in 2015 and is a significant driver of Occidental's growth in the Middle East.
Occidental also supplies natural gas to markets in the UAE through its participation in Dolphin Energy, the premier trans-border natural gas project in the Middle East and one of the region's largest energy initiatives.
