ADNOC Enters into 15-Year LNG Supply Agreement with Germany’s Sefe

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has inked a significant 15-year agreement with a subsidiary of German energy company Sefe (Securing Energy for Europe) for the delivery of 1 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG). This marks a milestone collaboration in the energy sector, aiming to meet growing global demand for LNG while bolstering energy security.

Sourcing from Ruwais LNG Plant

The LNG will primarily be sourced from ADNOC’s low-carbon Ruwais LNG plant, currently under development in Al Ruwais Industrial City. The Ruwais project, with two natural gas liquefaction trains boasting a total capacity of 9.6 mmtpa, is poised to more than double ADNOC’s LNG production capacity.

ADNOCStr-ategic Partnership

The agreement with Sefe, the first with a European company from the Ruwais project, underscores ADNOC’s commitment to being a reliable global energy provider. It emphasizes ADNOC’s role in supporting efforts to diversify energy sources and address the evolving energy landscape.

Meeting European Energy Demands

Germany, the largest economy in the European Union, aims to produce 80% of its electricity using renewable energy sources by 2030. Despite this ambition, the country remains reliant on fossil fuels for domestic power production. The LNG supply agreement between ADNOC and Sefe aligns with Germany’s efforts to diversify its energy mix and reduce dependence on traditional energy sources.

Expanding Market Reach

The collaboration with Sefe reflects ADNOC’s strategy to expand its presence across the natural gas value chain and strengthen its position as a major international player in the energy sector. By forging partnerships and leveraging innovative solutions, ADNOC aims to capitalize on emerging market opportunities and contribute to global energy security.

Continued Growth and Investment

The LNG supply agreement with Sefe is ADNOC’s second long-term agreement involving the Ruwais LNG project, following a similar deal with China’s ENN Natural Gas. ADNOC’s commitment to LNG expansion is evident in its establishment of Adnoc Gas, consolidating gas processing and LNG operations into a single business unit.

Future Outlook

The International Energy Agency (IEA) projects global gas demand to increase by 2.5% in the coming year, driven by colder winter weather and rising energy needs. LNG supplies are expected to grow by 3.5%, albeit at a slower pace compared to previous years due to delays in new liquefaction plants and challenges related to feedstock availability.


As ADNOC continues to forge strategic partnerships and invest in LNG infrastructure, it reaffirms its commitment to meeting global energy demands and driving sustainable growth in the energy sector. The collaboration with Sefe underscores the importance of international cooperation in addressing energy challenges and advancing towards a more diversified and resilient energy future.
