ADNOC unveils expansion plans for Ruwais
Major development plans have been announced for Ruwais in Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra region.
The project, led by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) will see the city’s population nearly double over the next 15 years, in addition to the creation of thousands of jobs.
At least 3,000 new housing units, a cricket field, golf course and an expanded public transport network are also being planned.
Earlier this year, ADNOC had announced its decision to invest AED 165 billion to develop the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemicals complex in Ruwais.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, said: “Ruwais is an international centre of various industries, especially oil and gas, and is an important part of the UAE economy, and the main destination for the residents and visitors of Al Dhafra Region. Its growth and expansion will advance the country’s refining and petrochemical industries while updating and improving its infrastructure will enable it to keep pace with the country’s progress.”
