Mobile solar systems will replace generators for power supply

The highly mobile solar farms can be quickly deployed at remote mobile camps doing away with generators and cutting emissions

As Adnoc Drilling works to further decarbonise its operations and support net-zero by 2045, it is using mobile solar energy farms to support remote worksites and accommodation.

Solar energy is just one of many ways Adnoc Drilling has committed to decarbonisation as part of its aim to reduce its carbon intensity.

Its mobile solar systems are up and running and these highly mobile solar farms are capable of being easily and quickly deployed at its mobile camps and are aimed at providing power supply to meet as many of the camps’ requirements as possible.

Additionally, by doing away with the need for generators, these solar systems reduce not only noise pollution but also improve air quality by cutting down emissions.

As one of the Middle East’s largest drilling and well completions company, Adnoc Drilling is driving sustainable growth through strategic and responsible operations.

Its sustainability strategy stands firm on three pillars: Reducing well delivery times so reducing emissions, decreasing emissions per rig, and exploring new opportunities using new energies and technology to further improve sustainability and future proof our business.

Adnoc Drilling saw a period of strong growth in 2023, all in terms of profits, resources and operations.

In 2023, it recorded a net profit of $1.03 billion, up 29 per cent year-on-year.

The company added 14 new drilling units in 2023, including four lease-to-own land rigs, establishing one of the world’s largest owned and operated fleets consisting of 129 rigs.

Adnoc Drilling’s revenue for the year increased to $3.06 billion, up 14% year-on-year.

Revenue growth was driven primarily by the Offshore Jack-up and Oilfield Services (OFS) segments, increasing 31% and 37%, respectively.

All segments grew year-on-year as the company continues to execute on its fleet and OFS expansion strategy in support of the delivery of Adnoc’s production capacity target.

In 2023, it partnered with Alpha Dhabi Holding (Alpha Dhabi) to create Enersol, a strategic joint venture (JV) targeting value-accretive technology-enabled oilfield and energy service businesses globally across the OFS and energy value chain.

The JV, of which the company owns 51% of, underpins Adnoc Drilling’s market-leading position as an integrated drilling services provider, powering its growth and expansion strategy by co-investing up to $1.5 billion across OFS and energy sectors.
