CEO Message

Dear Stakeholders,

It is my pleasure to present to you ADGAS’s seventh sustainability report for the year 2015, which is the fruit of our efforts to promote social, economic and environmental sustainable development. At ADGAS, we place sustainability at the very heart of our priorities, considering it as the cornerstone that drives sustainable growth. 

The principles of corporate social responsibility are embedded in our strategy and business practices, where emphasis is placed on safety at work, asset integrity, mitigating and reducing the impact of our operations on the environment, contributing to the well-being of our employees and the local community of UAE.

Over the past years, our concentrated efforts in two strategic projects, namely the OAG (Off-Shore Associated Gas) and the IGD (Integrated Gas Development), have helped us to significantly contribute to meeting the growing local demand of clean energy. The ongoing expansions in the IGD project are primarily focused on increasing the gas supply to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi by processing an additional 400 MMSCFD of offshore HP Gas from Umm Shaif to Habshan through Das Island.  This will be in addition to the current gas flow of 1,000 MMSCFD realized under the IGD Project. 

In more than one way, the year 2015 witnessed many successes for ADGAS in the three sustainability pillars: economy, environment and society. Through the hard work and dedication of our work force and with the support of ADNOC and our international shareholders, we have been able to create steady growth, maximize the value on investment for our shareholder, achieve operational excellence and establish the highest levels of safety and environmental performance.

In 2015, and in recognition of our commitment to operational excellence, ADGAS has received the ISO 50001 certification for its Energy Management System and the ISO 27001 certification for Information Security Management, along with several HSE awards. The year 2015 also witnessed the graduation of the first generation of ADGAS Leaders of Tomorrow program.

At the heart of our work is an ongoing focus on process safety in order to recognize and reduce risks, ensure reliability and excellent industrial performance. This helps us look for common trends, determine where processes and procedures may need to be improved, and identify opportunities to enhance our safety culture and leadership.

Building on our employees’ commitment and experience and harnessing well-established systems in terms of plant integrity, reliability and talent management, ADGAS has effectively achieved all its 2015 targets and exceeded most of them. These achievements will encourage us to set more challenging targets in 2016 to enhance our sustainability performance.

We shall continue our commitment towards the community and endeavour to fulfil our social responsibilities, in a way that shall sustain results with positive  impact.

Finally, l would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation to all who are contributing in achieving the company aims and objectives, looking forward to sharing our future progress with you in the following years.

Fahim Kazim
