Abu Dhabi Ports Group has signed a new agreement with Eni Abu Dhabi B.V., a branch of the Italian energy company, to establish a marine logistics base at Mugharraq Port supporting offshore drilling operations in the heart of Al Dhafra region.

Mugharraq Port’s ultra-modern infrastructure and its strategic location close to the region’s offshore oil and gas facilities will be made available to Eni Abu Dhabi operations, the ports group said in a statement on Monday.

Eni has been present in Abu Dhabi since 2018 with a 10 percent stake in the Umm Shaif and Nasr Offshore concession plus a 5 percent stake in the Lower Zakum concession. It was also awarded a 25 percent stake in ADNOC’s Ghasha sour gas field concession.
