Hail oil field was put into production on November 7 in the Abu Dhabi Oil Company (ADOC) concession by Cepsa and Cosmo Oil, through the company Cosmo Abu Dhabi Energy Exploration & Production Co. Ltd, which is one of ADOC’s shareholders with a 64.4% stake.

Hail is the fourth offshore crude oil field to start production in the ADOC concession in addition to the Mubarraz field, Umm Al-Anbar field and Neewat Al- Ghalan fields. All of them are located in shallow waters to the West of Abu Dhabi and were put into production in 2017, 1973, 1989, and 1995, respectively.

The Hail field will allow the company to significantly increase its production. The Hail field is adjacent to the existing fields, making maximum use of facilities already in use. It is located on an artificial island communicated via subsea pipeline to current production and export facilities on Mubarraz Island. The development also includes 10 producing wells.

The Hail oil field was acquired when the existing oil fields renewed their concessions for 30 years on December 12, 2012. After the acquisition of the concession, ADOC carried out the analysis process such as the 3D seismic survey and drilling of the appraisal wells, reclamation of the new artificial island and construction of facilities, as well as drilling new wells.

Cepsa holds a 20% stake in Cosmo Abu Dhabi Energy Exploration & Production Co.Ltd. The other 80% interest belongs to Cosmo Oil, one of Japan’s largest companies in the sector. Both Cepsa and Cosmo form part of Mubadala Investment Company’s portfolio (Cepsa 100% and Cosmo 20.8%) and have significant synergies between them.

The operation strengthens Cepsa's presence in Abu Dhabi, where the company has operated a subsidiary since 2013, as well as its relationship with Cosmo Oil, a renowned international partner that has been working in this location for over 40 years.
