FAQs

ADNOC Drilling (the “Company”, “we”, "us") is the largest national drilling company in the Middle East by rig fleet size, with 107 rigs, out of which 96 are owned rigs as of 30 June 2021, and the sole provider of drilling rig hire services and certain associated rig-related services to the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (“ADNOC Group”) on agreed contractual terms. We provide our customers with a full suite of drilling services, including rig hire services and certain associated rig related services in Abu Dhabi and oilfield services (such as integrated drilling services, wireline, directional drilling, cementing, pressure pumping, logging and fluids, and hydraulic fracturing). Approximately half of our fleet is less than five years old and 29 of our rigs are performing integrated drilling services to our customers. From our inception through to 31 December 2020, we have drilled over 9,600 wells with a total distance of over 70 million feet. In the first half of 2021, we drilled 286 additional wells.

For the year ended 31 December 2020, we generated revenue of USD 2,097.9 million, EBITDA of USD 959.7 million and net profit of USD 569.0 million. For the six months ended 30 June 2021, we generated revenue of USD 1,123.5 million, EBITDA of USD 499.5 million and net profit of USD 281.6 million.

We were established in 1972 by virtue of an Emiri Decree as the National Drilling Company of Abu Dhabi and a wholly owned subsidiary of ADNOC Group. In 2018, we were reorganised by virtue of Federal Law No. 21 of 2018 to become “ADNOC Drilling Company PJSC”. This was part of an initiative to re-organise us and improve our efficiency and profitability.

Following our reorganisation and as part of the initiative to improve our efficiency and profitability, Baker Hughes invested in us and agreed with ADNOC to an activity - and milestone - based deferred consideration mechanism, beginning in 2023, linked to the development of ADNOC’s new conventional and unconventional development program. Any payments under this deferred consideration mechanism would be between ADNOC and Baker Hughes, and would not result in any payments to or from us. Simultaneously, Baker Hughes entered into a series of agreements with us to enable us to become the first provider of integrated drilling services in the region, acting as the sole interface with customers. The strategic alliance with Baker Hughes added oil field services equipment, services, technology and further manpower capabilities to our existing in-house rig rental and rig management capabilities.

ADNOC Group is an integrated energy company wholly owned by the government of Abu Dhabi. It is one of the world’s largest energy producers and a primary catalyst for the growth and diversification of the Abu Dhabi economy. With a production capacity of approximately 4 million barrels of oil per day and 10.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, it operates across the entire hydrocarbon value chain. It has a network of fully-integrated businesses for exploration, production, storage, refining and trading, as well as the development of a wide range of petrochemical products.

ADNOC Drilling is a flagship company of ADNOC Group supporting it in achieving its strategic objectives of increasing crude oil production capacity by 25% to 5 million barrels of oil per day by 2030, achieving UAE gas self-sufficiency and producing 1 billion cubic feet per day of unconventional gas. ADNOC Group’s ownership in ADNOC Drilling, together with various agreements, including a relationship agreement between us and ADNOC in connection with the Offering, will allow us to continue to benefit from a number of competitive advantages, including being the sole provider of drilling hire services and associated rig-related services to ADNOC Group on agreed contractual terms. These include: our being the sole provider of drilling hire services and associated rig-related services to ADNOC Group on agreed contractual terms, the strength of the ADNOC brand name and its position in the Gulf region and ADNOC Group’s experience and expertise in the oil and gas industry.

We are currently 95% owned by ADNOC Group. Following the offering, ADNOC Group will continue to be our majority shareholder. Baker Hughes will continue to hold a 5% stake post listing, following its investment in 2018.

ADNOC Group will remain the majority shareholder in the Company post IPO and continue to work with us as it has for the past 50 years. ADNOC Group will continue to fully support us as a committed, majority shareholder and customer. ADNOC upstream operating companies will continue to procure rig services solely from us based on agreed contractual terms, enabling ADNOC Group to reliably and efficiently unlock the UAE’s oil and gas resources in the service of the nation. The IPO will help realize ADNOC Group’s ongoing group-wide transformation by unlocking greater value while accelerating business performance and revenue growth.

ADNOC Group and ADNOC Drilling have entered into contractual arrangements regarding rig services and integrated drilling services, on arms’ length terms. Pursuant to the Rig Services Framework Agreement, except as may otherwise be set out in any current operating company contract entered into with the ADNOC upstream operating companies, during the Initial Rig Base Term (being 15 years) of any onshore or offshore rig, the rates charged by us for the Rig Services provide the for recovery of an agreed target internal rate of return (“ IRR”) of 11% to 13% for offshore rigs and an agreed target IRR 10% to 12% for onshore rigs, on our capital and operational costs incurred during the period.

Once the Initial Rig Base Term expires, the rate structure is set to provide recovery of our operating costs on a cost-plus basis to allow for an target EBIT margin of 15 to 17% for onshore rigs, and in respect of offshore rigs, the higher of (a) cost-plus basis to allow for a target EBIT margin of 15 to 17%; and (b) the GCC average rate for all active contracts (as set out in the RigLogix database) following a set percentage discount.

We have the right to review the rates charged by us to any operating company under any future operating company contracts (annually for offshore rigs and every three years for onshore rigs) to ensure that the contractual target IRR or EBIT margins are maintained.

In addition, we also lease or sublease properties from ADNOC Group, have been granted rights to use the ADNOC logo, trademarks and materials in Africa, Europe and the GCC and ADNOC Group owns all of the physical information technology (IT) infrastructure that provide IT services to our corporate IT users.

The IPO is another step in ADNOC Group’s value maximization strategy to take full advantage of all emerging market opportunities across the hydrocarbon value chain. ADNOC Drilling is a key enabler of ADNOC Group’s strategic objective to increase crude oil production capacity by 25% to 5 million barrels per day by 2030, achieve UAE gas self-sufficiency, and produce 1 billion cubic feet per day of unconventional gas. A public listing enables the Company to be more resilient and dynamic and helps unlock ADNOC Drilling’s full potential by creating opportunities to expand the business further in the UAE and beyond. Increased liquidity and access to new sources of capital will accelerate growth and solidify the Company’s market leadership.

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve however we have adopted robust business continuity measures designed to best serve employees, customers, and wider stakeholders across our business segments, and have fully adhered to Abu Dhabi’s COVID-19 protocols.

We responded dynamically to the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic, implementing a series of measures to aim to ensure the health and safety of our employees while ensuring uninterrupted services to our customers. These measures included work-from-home arrangements for all management and support staff, social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures and awareness campaigns, arrangements for coronavirus testing across our sites, contact tracing and self-isolation arrangements as well as monitoring suppliers, subcontractors, and partners. We also created country and customer-wide business continuity plans and return-to-work guides to support the new working arrangements. As of 30 April 2021, approximately 93% of ADNOC Drilling’s workforce had received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 89% received the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, we have ensured that office and site-based employees undergo regular weekly and bi-weekly COVID-19 PCR tests.

The Internal Sharia Supervision Committees of First Abu Dhabi Bank PJSC and HSBC Bank Middle East Limited have issued pronouncements confirming that, in their view, the Offering is compliant with Shariah principles. Investors may not rely on these pronouncements and should undertake their own due diligence to ensure that the Offering is Shariah compliant for their own purposes..

ADNOC Drilling has several competitive strengths that position it as a compelling investment opportunity.

- We are the largest national drilling company in the Middle East by fleet size with 107 rigs, out of which 96 are owned rigs as of 30 June 2021, approximately twice the size of the second largest regional drilling provider, which has 53 rigs.

- We benefit from a preferential contractual framework entered into with ADNOC which provides us with strong downside protection. Under this framework, ADNOC upstream operating companies procure rig services solely from us based on agreed contractual terms.

- We believe we are well-positioned to achieve strong growth in both drilling and integrated drilling activities and generate sustainable growing cash flows. Our drilling business is expected to benefit from significant demand growth driven by ADNOC’s strategic upstream targets and our integrated drilling services business is expected to benefit from increased penetration of the market and strong expansion of activity over the company years.

- We have an almost 50-year track record of strong operational performance, with an extensive footprint and well-developed drilling infrastructure in the UAE, a high quality, well maintained fleet and an experienced senior management team.

- We are committed to environmental and social initiatives and will contribute towards ADNOC’s goals to (i) decrease greenhouse gas intensity by 25% by 2030, (ii) expand their carbon capture, utilization and storage capacity by 500% to 5 million tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2030, (iii) limit freshwater consumption to below 0.5% of total water usage, and (iv) plant 10 million mangrove seedlings in Al Dhafra region.

Before making any decision on whether to invest in ADNOC Drilling IPO, including investment risks, you should read the prospectus in full. You can find detailed information about the Company in the prospectus here.

We benefit from our preferential contractual framework with ADNOC that helps us achieve leading profitability margins with resilient performance and stability against the volatility in the commodity prices.

We have achieved 50% EBITDA margin on average during the three-year period from 2018 to 2020 and have maintained robust funds from operations in excess of USD 1 billion on average during the same period despite the adverse macroeconomic conditions, the oil price shock in 2020 and the Coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, we have a solid balance sheet with leverage (net debt over EBITDA) of 1.2x as of 30 June 2021, one of the lowest in the industry. These factors are expected to enable us to deliver consistent dividends and attractive returns to our shareholders.

We believe ADNOC Drilling is well-positioned to achieve strong growth in both drilling and integrated drilling activities and generate sustainable growing free cash flows.

Our drilling business is expected to benefit from significant demand growth driven by ADNOC’s strategic upstream targets. We expect expansion in our rig fleet to deliver the long-term growth targets set by ADNOC and generate sustainable growing free cash flows.

We achieved a 36% cumulative drilling performance improvement from 2018 to 2020, which is calculated by comparing actual vs. scheduled days for delivering a well. We completed 86 out of 108 integrated drilling services wells ahead of schedule and below the expected budget for 2019 and 2020. As of 30 June 2021, we had 29 rigs performing integrated drilling services for ADNOC Onshore and ADNOC Offshore and we expect to reach 38 rigs performing integrated drilling services by the end of 2021.

Our integrated drilling services business is expected to benefit from increased penetration of the market and strong expansion of activity over the coming years. Our fully-integrated services offering positions us favourably to gain market share in the oilfield services market space (as referenced in the industry report, see “Industry Overview”). We have grown our share of the integrated drilling solutions market space, from 10% in 2019 to 35% in 2020; and expect to increase it up to 45% by the end of 2021. We believe significant opportunities exist to expand our operations in the UAE and regionally.

We believe we have a stable existing business delivering resilient financial performance and the strong expected captive growth both on the drilling and integrated drilling services activities positions us favourably to generate sustainably growing free cash flows.

We have an almost 50-year track record of strong operational performance, with an extensive footprint and well-developed drilling infrastructure in the UAE, a high quality, well maintained fleet and an experienced senior management team.

We work closely with our customers to improve drilling efficiencies, which frequently results in rig operations being completed ahead of plan and ultimately lowering the cost per well for our customers. We are responsive and flexible in addressing our customers’ specific needs and seek collaborative solutions to achieve customer objectives. We believe that our strong operational performance and close alignment with our customers’ interests provides us with a competitive advantage and contributes to our contracting success and high fleet utilisation.

We have achieved a 30% reduction in well duration over four years (from 2016 to 2019 compared against the 2015 baseline) driven mainly by our real time monitoring centre, which allows us to remotely monitor up to 120 wells simultaneously. Our efforts to continuously improve our operational performance resulted in a reduction in well duration from an average 96 days in 2018 to an average 58 days in 2020, and an average 46 days in 2018 to an average 36 days in our Offshore segment and Onshore segment, respectively.

Additionally, our fleet is comprised of well-maintained onshore rigs, jack-up rigs and island rigs with proven technologies and operating capabilities. Since our inception, we have implemented strategic fleet upgrade and renewal programs. More than half of our onshore rigs are less than five years old. Similarly, more than half of our jack up rigs are less than 10 years old and 70% of our island rigs are less than five years old.

We continuously evaluate and enhance our fleet with “smart upgrades” where appropriate to meet our customers’ requirements, in accordance with our “fit-for-purpose” strategy. We believe preserving high quality and well-maintained rigs are key to continue to benefit from our customers’ trust and secure new drilling contracts, which in turn is expected to lead to an increase in revenues and profitability.

Additionally, our senior management team averages 25 years of experience in the drilling, workover and oilfield services industry, and has 200 years of collective industry experience. Our management team has a proven track record of growing revenue and profitability and implementing initiatives to improve operating efficiency and profit margins.

11% of ADNOC Drilling shares will be offered and the Company’s shares will be listed on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX). Baker Hughes’ stake in ADNOC Drilling will remain unchanged at 5%. The final amount listed and ADNOC Group’s stake in ADNOC Drilling at listing will depend on a number of factors including, amongst other considerations, the prevailing market conditions, investor appetite and outcome of the Qualified Investor subscription process. The exact amount to be listed will be determined and announced at or before the announcement of final offer price. ADNOC retains the right to increase the size of the Offering at any time before pricing.

Prior to the Global Offering, there has been no public market for the Shares. The Offer Price was determined at AED 2.30 per share by the Selling Shareholder and us following investor engagement undertaken by the Joint Global Coordinators. Among the factors considered in determining the Offer Price was our future prospects and the prospects of our industry in general, our revenue, our net profit and certain other financial operating information with respect to us in recent periods, and the financial ratios, market prices of securities and certain financial and operating information of companies engaged in activities similar to ours.

Only existing shares held by ADNOC Group (and not Baker Hughes) are being offered for sale; no new shares are being issued as part of the Offering. Total ordinary shares of 1,760,000,000 at a nominal value of AED 0.10 are being offered to the public representing 11% of the Company’s share capital. ADNOC retains the right to increase the size of the Offering at any time before pricing.

The Company’s paid-up share capital at the date of listing will be AED 1.6 billion divided into 16,000,000,000 shares with a nominal value of AED 0.10 per share. All of these shares are currently held by ADNOC Group and Baker Hughes.

ADNOC Drilling will not receive any proceeds from the Global Offering.

The Global Offering is being conducted, among other reasons, to allow the ADNOC Group to sell part of its shareholding, while providing increased trading liquidity in the shares of ADNOC Drilling and raising our profile with the international investment community. All of the net proceeds of the Offering will be received by ADNOC.

As a result of the above, all expenses of the Global Offering (including selling commissions and any discretionary fees) will be borne by the Selling Shareholder, ADNOC.

The ADX is our local exchange and a natural home market for the Company. Listing on the ADX gives us exposure to the region’s large community of sophisticated investors, whilst still being able to attract international investors to the offering, as well as the citizens and residents of the UAE and employees of ADNOC Group.

The IPO is another step in ADNOC Group’s value maximization strategy to take full advantage of all emerging market opportunities across the hydrocarbon value chain. ADNOC Drilling is a key enabler of ADNOC Group’s strategic objective to increase crude oil production capacity by 25% to 5 million barrels per day by 2030 from 4 million barrels per day in 2020, achieve UAE gas self-sufficiency and produce 1 billion cubic feet per day of unconventional gas. A public listing enables the Company to be more resilient and dynamic and helps unlock ADNOC Drilling’s full potential by creating opportunities to expand the business further in the UAE and beyond. Increased liquidity and access to new sources of capital will accelerate growth and solidify the Company’s market leadership.

A listing of ADNOC Drilling on ADX allows investors to participate in the company’s success story and provides an opportunity for the citizens and residents of the UAE to benefit in the future growth of ADNOC Drilling as it helps enable ADNOC meet its ambitious gas and oil production capacity expansion targets.

Our ability to pay dividends is dependent on a number of factors, including the availability of distributable reserves and our capital expenditure plans and other cash requirements in future periods, and there is no assurance that we will pay dividends or, if a dividend is paid, what the amount of such dividend will be.

Subject to the foregoing, our Board has approved a dividend payment of USD 360.3 million, reflecting the dividends for the first half of 2021, to be distributed to existing shareholders ahead of the Offering. We intend to pay dividends twice each fiscal year after the Offering, with an initial payment in April and a second payment in October of each year.

Subject to the foregoing, we expect to pay a fixed dividend amount of USD 325 million for the second half of 2021, to be paid in April 2022.

Thereafter, we expect to grow the dividend amount from USD 650 million (annualized dividend of second half of 2021), by a growth rate of 5% per annum on a dividend per share basis over the next five years (2022 – 2026) - a “5 for 5” dividend policy.

This dividend policy is designed to reflect our expectation of strong cash flow and our expected long-term earnings potential, while allowing us to retain sufficient capital to fund ongoing operating requirements and continued investment for long-term growth. This dividend policy is subject to consideration by our Board of Directors taking into account the cash management requirements of our business for operating expenses, interest expense, and anticipated capital expenditures. In addition, we expect that our Board of Directors will also consider market conditions, the current operating environment in our markets and the Board of Directors’ outlook for our business.

The offer period will commence and the offer price announced on 13 September and will close on 23 September for Individual and ADNOC Group Company Employees and on 26 September for Qualified Investors.

All investors will be informed of allocations on 27 September.

For Subscription through ADX ePortal Subscriptions - please access - For Arabic: https://www.adx.ae/Arabic/Pages/ProductsandServices/ipo.aspx

For English: https://www.adx.ae/English/Pages/ProductsandServices/ipo.aspx

Refer to the “ADX IPO ePortal Subscription Instructions” and follow the instructions. Click on the IPO Subscription Link provided to subscribe for the First Tranche and the Third Tranche. (Applicable only for investors who do not have accounts with any of the Receiving Banks)

Subscription amounts paid by way of cheque must be submitted by 12pm on 21 September 2021.

Subscription applications received through E-subscription online and mobile banking / FTS / SWIFT must be made before 12pm on 22 September 2021.

The Individual & Other (First Tranche) and the ADNOC Group Companies Employee (Third Tranche) will close on 22 September 2021.

• Subscription amounts paid by way of cheque must be submitted by 12pm (mid-day) on 21 September 2021.

• Subscription applications received through e-subscription / mobile banking / FTS/ SWIFT must be made before 12pm (mid-day) on 22 September 2021.

Under the First and the Third Tranche investors will have a guaranteed allocation due to pro-rata allocation for each individual tranche. However, in the Second Tranche the allocation is at the discretion of the selling shareholder.

In the event of over-subscription, investors in the Individual & Other (First Tranche) and ADNOC employee & UAE National Retirees tranche (Third Tranche) will be separately allocated shares pro-rata to their application.

Qualified Investors will be allocated in a discretionary manner determined by the Company and the Selling Shareholder, in consultation with the Joint Lead Managers (excluding HSBC Bank Middle East Limited in connection with any Offering to natural persons).

Book building is a mechanism, pursuant to which the price is set prior to the issuance of the shares or prior to the offering. The book building process comprises these steps:

1. The issuing company hires one or more investment banks to act as underwriters who are tasked with assisting the issuing company in determining the price range at which the security can be sold and with drafting a Prospectus to send out to the investors.

2. The appointed investment banks invite certain qualified investors, normally, but not restricted to, large-scale sophisticated buyers and fund managers, to submit bids on the

number of shares that they are interested in buying and the prices that they would be willing to pay for such shares, and recording the qualified investors’ opinions in the register specifically for recording the subscription orders for the shares offered.

3. The book is 'built' by listing and evaluating the aggregated demand for the issue from the submitted bids. The underwriters analyze the information and, based on that analysis, determine with the issuing company and its selling shareholder, the final price for the shares, which is termed the final offer price.

4. Shares for submitted bids pertaining to the Second Tranche are then allocated among the accepted bidders, at the discretion of the issuing company and its selling shareholder.

ADNOC employees have a separate tranche – Third Tranche – comprising 2% of the offering whereby their allocations will be determined separately on a pro-rata to their application.

In case, the offer shares from the ADNOC Employee tranche are not fully subscribed, the unsubscribed portion shall be available to the Individual & Other (First) tranche or alternatively (in consultation with the SCA) the Selling Shareholder may (i) extend the Closing Date for the First Tranche, Second Tranche and Third Tranche and/or (ii) close the Offering at the level of applications received.

On 30 September 2021, an SMS notification will be sent regarding final allocation in the Investors & Other and ADNOC Employee & UAE National Retiree tranches.

Commencement of refunds related to the investment surplus to the Investors & Other and ADNOC Employee & UAE National Retiree tranches as well as commencement of dispatch of registered mail relating to allotment of shares will be communicated on 30 September 2021.

Within five (5) working days of the allocation (30 September 2021), the surplus subscription amounts, and any accrued profit resulting thereon, shall be refunded to Subscribers in the First Tranche and the Third Tranche who did not receive Offer Shares.

Further subscription amounts and any accrued profit resulting thereon shall be refunded to the Subscribers in the First Tranche and the Third Tranche whose applications have been rejected for any of the above reasons.

Please contact your relationship manager at one of the Receiving Banks for further details.

Trading is expected to begin on or around 3 October 2021, subject to regulatory approvals. From this date, shares in the Company will be available to buy and sell.
