Location of Bab (Source: ADIAS)
In 1958 the company Petroleum Development (Trucial Coast) discovered the onshore Bab oilfield. After the ending of the Trucial States treaties with Britain and the creation of the UAE in 1971, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) was set up to manage and operate all aspects of the emirates oil and gas industry. Abu Dhabis main onshore oilfields are the fields at Asab, Bab, Bu Hasa, Sahil and Shah.
