ADNOC to Expand Al Hosn Sour Gas Project

Al Bawaba, November 10, 2016

ADNOC, in partnership with Occidental Petroleum, recently announced the company intends to expand its Al Hosn facility, which will increase sour gas processing by 50% of existing capacity. Al Hosn, one of the world’s largest plants producing sour gas, began operations in 2015 and reached its full capacity of one billion cubic feet per day (bcf) in the second quarter of that year. 

Vicki Hollub, President and Chief Executive Officer of Occidental Petroleum said: “It is good news that ADNOC is committed to expanding Al Hosn. We look forward to working on the next phase to optimize the plant’s expansion. Demand for domestic gas is rising and processing additional sour gas from new and existing reservoirs makes sound business sense."
