A fire that broke out at the Takreer Ruwais refinery of Abu Dhabi's state-owned oil company ADNOC on 11 January, 2017, was contained without injuries or operational impact. 

ADNOC said in a tweet at 7.05pm on the day that a blaze had broken out at the refinery, adding that work was underway to contain the fire.

 

In a separate tweet, ADNOC added: "The fire is contained to one of our processing units. There is no immediate danger to the population."

The fire was reportedly under control and contained by 10.15pm, with ADNOC stating that "a comprehensive assessment and investigation" would be implemented to find the cause of the fire. 

"There is no residual impact on production or disturbance to supply," ADNOC added.

ADNOC CEO Sultan Al Jaber was later photographed with the command team at Ruwais.
