Adnoc's Ruwais facility to supply EGA with calcined petroleum coke
EGA to source up to 40% of its calcined coke requirements from within the UAE through the supply-based deal
Abu Dhabi Oil Company (Adnoc) has inked a long-term agreement with Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) to supply EGA with the majority of the calcined petroleum coke produced by the oil giant’s Carbon Black and Delayed Coker (CBDC) facility in Ruwais.
The agreement was signed between, director of marketing, supply and trading at Adnoc, Khaled Salmeen, and managing director and chief executive officer of EGA, Abdulla Kalban.
Speaking about the agreement, Dr Al Jaber said: "This agreement contributes to further increasing the local economic benefit generated from the UAE’s natural resources and deepens ties and integration between two of the UAE’s most important industries.
“This partnership will enable ADNOC to maximize the value extracted from every barrel of oil that is produced and processed."
Al Jaber added that Adnoc’s CBDC plant processes the heavy residue material left over from the refining of crude oil and converts it into “more valuable refined products”.
