Petrofac in the Middle East
United Arab Emirates
Our heritage is deep-rooted in the UAE, our success coinciding with the growth and prosperity of the nation. By contributing to the local economy, developing infrastructure, and upskilling people, we are enabling the UAE’s energy to benefit its citizens, the region, and the world.
Empowering the world with the UAE’s energy
Our legacy in the UAE dates back to 1991 when Petrofac International was born, with an operational centre in the Emirate of Sharjah. In time we developed a large workforce supporting both regional and international projects. The flagship Petrofac Tower in Sharjah’s Al-Khan district became an iconic landmark for the business. In 2008, we established Petrofac Emirates in Abu Dhabi to provide a full range of engineering, design, procurement, and construction services for onshore and offshore oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, and renewables projects.
As well as delivering some of the UAE’s most prestigious energy assets, and providing operations and maintenance support to several facilities, the country has become an operational base for many of Petrofac’s international projects, and more recently, a construction and fabrication centre for our offshore wind development projects, as we expand in new energies.
