ADNOC Drilling’s hybrid-powered rigs begin operations

RIYADH: The UAE’s ADNOC Drilling began its 2024 operations with two hybrid-powered land rigs in Abu Dhabi, according to an official statement.

The rigs use a high-capacity battery and engine automation. The hybrid power technology system stores energy in its batteries to use when there is a need for continuous power or to provide instant extra power when there is an increase in demand, reducing a rig’s greenhouse gas emissions by up to 15 percent compared to a traditional rig.
