The onshore revenue for the nine-month period was $847m, up 10 per cent compared to the same period last year, driven by new rigs and the reactivation of rigs in 2021. Third quarter 2021 revenue was $279m, up 9 per cent year-on-year.

Offshore jackup revenue increased during the nine-month period to $450m (nine-Month 2020: $443m), supported by an increase in operating activity of its jack-up rigs. Third quarter 2021 revenue was $157m, down 2 per cent year-on-year.

Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, ADNOC managing director and group CEO, and chairman of ADNOC Drilling, said, “With double-digit revenue growth, ADNOC Drilling has demonstrated exceptional financial performance and commercial resilience, reflected in a very robust third-quarter. These impressive results follow ADNOC Drilling’s record ADX listing in early October, and were well above market forecasts.”
