The Hail and Ghasha gas development project is reportedly a part of the Ghasha Concession and an essential enabler of gas self-sufficiency for the United Arab Emirates (UAE). 

The Ghasha Concession is the world’s largest offshore sour gas development. Moreover, it is a significant and key component of ADNOC’s integrated gas master plan. The plan features the application of new technologies and approaches to enable increased gas recovery.

Additionally, the plan also aims to develop untapped resources and leverage innovation to continually drive emissions reduction. The master plan links every part of the gas value chain. This further ensures an economic and sustainable economic supply of natural gas to meet growing UAE requirements.
