We have plans in place to further diversify our portfolio of assets and clients, expanding in China and utilising ADNOC’s breadth and depth to rapidly scale-up in areas of high demand.”

Deputy Chairman of ZMI, Ali Hassan El Ali, added: “Following the acquisition by ADNOC L&S, we are primed to drive and convert on our strategic priorities. We will leverage ADNOC’s extensive global operations to move ahead with our market consolidation and fleet expansion plans, alongside pursuing value-added opportunities in the energy transition space and establishing relationships with operators in new markets.”

It is noteworthy to mention that ZMI will continue operating as a standalone entity under ADNOC L&S and Ali Hassan El Ali will lead the new phase of growth as the CEO of ZMI.
