Abu Dhabi National Oil Company on Wednesday rolled out a virtual energy centre in an effort to provide a more detailed insight into its operations.

The centre, which was launched on the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition Conference, shows how Adnoc is realising its 2030 strategy to create "a more profitable upstream, more valuable downstream, and a more sustainable and economical gas supply", the company said in a statement.

“We are delighted to launch the Adnoc Virtual Energy Centre, an innovative platform that visually demonstrates the steps we have taken to strengthen Adnoc’s resilience as part of our transformation and how we are sustainably unlocking and maximising value from Abu Dhabi’s hydrocarbon resources," Dr Sultan Al Jaber, UAE minister of industry and advanced technology and Adnoc Group chief executive, said.

"The virtual centre also offers an insight into the essential role the oil and gas industry will play in enabling economic development in the post-Covid recovery by ensuring a reliable supply."

The centre shows four different virtual rooms in a 3D environment. Each room shows Adnoc's journey through interactive displays and will help the general public to understand its business.

It will also support efforts to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics education among children in the UAE.

The centre, which can be accessed at adnocvec.ae, is available to students, members of the public and anyone interested in learning more about Adnoc or the oil and gas industry.
