The Ghasha mega-project is a key enabler of ADNOC’s In-Country Value (ICV) Program, which aims to nurture new local and international partnerships by catalyzing socio-economic growth and creating job opportunities for UAE nationals. Over the project’s lifetime, an expected ICV of 40% will flow back into the UAE economy, further driving the UAE’s socio-economic development.
During the peak construction period, the project will comprise 30,000 to 40,000 contractor staff and is expected to employ over 1,500 people. Construction and drilling contracts have defined requirements to drive Emiratization and open up new opportunities for talented young graduates in the next few years. In the production phase, it has been estimated that hundreds of job opportunities will be created for UAE nationals.
