The 50th Anniversary of the First Shipment of Oil  

 Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) 

ADMA-OPCO is a pioneering oil and gas exploration and production company whose operations date back to the 1950s. With its operations centered in the offshore areas of Abu Dhabi, ADMA OPCO came into being as a locally incorporated company on 3rd July 1977. 

Oil and gas production comes from two major oil fields, Umm Shaif and Lower Zakum, from which crude oil is transferred to Das Island for processing, storage and export. In 1962, the first crude shipment, which came from Umm Shaif, was exported from Abu Dhabi through Das Island. 

ADMA-OPCO’s vision, mission and values incorporate a wide range of goals, including sustainable development, operational excellence and overcoming challenges, while nurturing human resources, fulfilling social responsibilities and realizing the company’s workforce nationalization targets. 

Being an asset-based organization, ADMA-OPCO’s structure is designed to improve efficiency, provide more focus to key mission, observe the highest health, safety and environment standards, and disseminate related information by various ways and means to enhance HSE awareness.

The 4th of July is a unique day in the history of the United Arab Emirates and in particular for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, it marks the export of the first crude oil shipment from the country.
