It said the platform, a joint venture between Adma-Opco and the Zakum Development Co., has the capacity to inject up to 100 million cubic feet per day of high-pressure hydrocarbon gas to each of the Lower and Upper Zakum reservoirs.
Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. said expansion projects at oil facilities would raise the UAE's sustainable crude output capacity from around 2.5 million barrels per day to 3.6 million bpd in 2005 and four million in 2010.
At least $15 billion have been pumped into such projects in the past decade and more than $10 billion is expected to be invested in oil and gas projects.
In July, Adnoc, Adma and Zadco said they had completed the first phase of a project involving the biggest seismic survey of its kind in the world to develop Lower and Upper Zakum.
