As we mentioned earlier, all oil and gas companies need to get approval from the Supreme Petroleum Council. This can be done through the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED). You’ll need the work IDs of the local sponsor or service agent to apply for this approval.
Depending on your business activity, your company may require special approvals.
These companies have to get a trade license with an additional activity: Onshore and Offshore Oil and Gas Field and Facilities Services:
- Employee catering
- Equipment trading
- Allied oil and gas related activities
If you need to access the oil field, you’ll need another approval from the Critical Infrastructure and Coastal Protection Authority (CICPA).
