Brief company profile
ADNOC Fertilizers was established in October 1980 as a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and TOTAL, with a shareholding ratio of 2:1, respectively. The plant is located in Ruwais Industrial Zone, about 250km from the city of Abu Dhabi. Construction of a processing plant began in 1980 and production started in December 1983.
The prime objective behind establishing the company was to utilize the associated gas supplied from the onshore fields to manufacture industrial fertilizers and to market them locally and internationally. It comprised one processing unit each of ammonia and urea with production capacity of 1,300 tons/day and 2,300 tons/day, respectively.
In early 2013, the new expansion project FERTIL-2 was completed, with a capacity of 2,000 tons/day ammonia and 3,500 tons/day urea, which strengthened the companyâ€™s position as a major player in the global petrochemical sector. After completion of the Urea Debottlenecking Project in 2009 and commissioning of FERTIL-2 project in July 2013, the combined complex production of ammonia reached 3,300 tons/ day and granulated urea 5,800 tons/day.
The market for ADNOC Fertilizers products has expanded considerably since its first shipment. Today, about 2% of its annual production of urea is marketed locally within the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while 98% is exported to the Indian subcontinent, Far East, Africa, US, Latin America and Australia.
ADNOC Fertilizers aspires to enhance its image and standing in world markets. Sustainability at ADNOC Fertilizers is aligned with the UAE national vision. The new plant utilizes state-of-the-art technologies for safety, health, energy conservation and reduction of emissions. ADNOC Fertilizers prides itself in recruiting a high number of UAE nationals, both men and women, to be trained and ultimately integrated into the workforce to ensure a sustainable future.
