Mr Al Jaber’s strategy — which has been conveyed to Adnoc administrators in the initial hundred days since he was delegated CEO in February — will be actualized logically in the coming years in what has been portrayed inside as a “journey to the future” for Adnoc.

Benchmarking exercises have been presented, utilizing best practice industry measures on the key paradigm of operating expense per barrel (opex). The fundamental opex benchmark has been incorporated with the execution contracts of Adnoc elements and the senior officials that run them.

The new procedure will likewise make Adnoc specialty units more responsible, and help them to stick to international best practice. Yet, the organization is not believed to consider first sale of stock of its holding organization or any specialty units on securities exchanges, an Adnoc source said.

The presentation of adjusted key execution pointers over the organization, and also reassuring national ability, is seen as particularly noteworthy inside Adnoc, supporting the entire system, guaranteeing that execution and business criteria are “hard wired” into the organization and its representatives over every one of its operations.
