Sharjah announces discovery of new gas reserves

Sharjah has discovered new gas reserves in the onshore Al Hadiba field. The emirate, however, did not reveal the volumes of gas discovered as it has yet to test the field located north of the Al Sajaa Industrial Area in Sharjah, which has “promising quantities” of gas reserves, according to the Sharjah Government Media Bureau.

“The new field was discovered after the Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) drilled a well over the past few months, and the well will be tested in the days ahead to confirm the quantities and potential gas reserves of the field for development,” a statement released on Saturday said.

The Al Hadiba field is the fifth onshore field in Sharjah, in addition to Al-Saja’a, Kahif, Mahani and Muayed fields.

The announcement comes after Sharjah, in 2020, discovered a new onshore well of natural gas and condensate in the emirate, its first in more than three decades.

State-owned SNOC and Italy’s oil major Eni discovered the “Mahani” exploration well within the first year of their partnership, SNOC said at the time.

The SNOC, established in 2010, is tasked with the exploration, production, engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of Sharjah’s energy assets.
