It makes business sense for SNOC to leverage the infrastructure and resources already available in Sharjah, due to decades of hard work since 1980. This will better ensure gas security for the next generation in the UAE and beyond. SNOC is available and ready to deepen its footprint in the UAE’s gas ecosystem,” explains Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Deputy Chairman of Sharjah Petroleum Council (SPC) and President of SNOC. “Sharjah also benefits from a strategic position along the coastline and in the centre of the country’s seven emirates, which means SNOC can provide an uninterrupted supply of gas across the UAE at a time of significant growth in demand. It is a win-win situation for all.
SNOC owns and operates 53 wells distributed in three fields and 2 hydrocarbon liquid storage and export terminals. The condensate terminal was constructed in 1981 in Hamriyah Sharjah and has two 500,000 barrels’ capacity tanks and one offshore Single Point Mooring (SPM) designed for multiple size tanker including VLCC tanker loading. Constructed in 1986, the LPG terminal has a dedicated loading jetty inside Hamriyah Port and Free Zone with 400,000 barrels and 300,000 barrels of propane and butane storage capacity, respectively.
With its existing facilities, infrastructure, strategic position and connectivity, SNOC is the only entity in the Northern Emirates capable of sending more than 1 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscfd) efficiently into the market. All pipelines in the Northern Emirates converge at Sajaa, giving it the ability to transfer this gas to anywhere in the UAE – a valuable convergence of infrastructure in a region that lacks an intra-GCC gas pipeline network. These pipelines are owned and operated by SNOC, SEWA, Emarat, Dana Gas, DUSUP, ADNOC and Dolphin.
We recognize the urgent need of the Northern Emirates for a reliable supply of natural gas that can be easily distributed to support large and small consumers, from the big power generators to small businesses. SNOC is already able to provide that level of much-needed flexibility,” said Hatem Al Mosa, Chief Executive Officer of SNOC and Secretary General of SPC. “The Sajaa complex has traditionally been the centre of the gas supply business in the Northern Emirates and it is well-placed to continue supporting the region.
We aim to operate as an integrated Oil & Gas National Oil Corporation (NOC) and be recognized as a value creator. Ethically and socially responsible, we aim to become market preferred gas supplier, improving continuously and utilizing existing assets for new technologies and markets.
