About Us

Our Story

Mubadala Petroleum is a leading international, upstream oil and gas exploration and production company.  We manage assets and operations spanning nine countries with a primary geographic focus on the Middle East and Southeast Asia. 

We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mubadala Investment Company (Mubadala), which is owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi. Established in 2012, incorporating and building on the success of Mubadala’s existing investments in the oil and gas sector, we are today a strategic pillar for the petroleum and petrochemicals platform within Mubadala, targeting growth and building a world class business. 

Our success is built on a clear purpose, strong partnerships, the passion and capability of our people, and our focus on performance. 

Core to Mubadala Petroleum’s business is being a responsible corporate citizen and operator with a strong commitment to health, safety and the environment to safeguard our employees, contractors and communities in the vicinity of our operations. We operate the majority of our assets in Southeast Asia where we are recognized for an excellent track record of safe and efficient operations. 

We are participants in a number of major projects including the world-class Dolphin Gas Project, which is central to meeting the energy needs of the UAE; enhanced oil recovery in Oman and most recently in the giant Zohr gas project in Egpyt; plus exploration, development and production activities in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. Utilizing the operating experience from Southeast Asia across our entire business, has seen us emerge as a very active partner in all of our projects, including those where we are not the operator.

Lasting partnerships, built with host governments, national and international oil and gas companies, and the communities in which we operate are central to our success. Additionally, the active support of Mubadala and the Abu Dhabi government plays an important role for us to facilitate government-to-government relations to grow our portfolio, building on our existing operated business and beyond.

Most recently, we have expanded our business in Egypt with a 10 percent interest in the Shorouk concession with the giant Zohr gas field. Last year we also made a pathfinder investment in an energy fund focused on the early stage of US unconventionals.

We build our success on strong capabilities combining significant operational experience with substantial technical expertise and commercial acumen. This is coupled with a strong commitment to developing the next generation of young talents and local nationals across our operations. And lastly, we continuously gain insights into new markets while deploying new technologies to increase efficiencies, all vital in our evolving industry and for growing our business further. 

Mubadala Petroleum is taking a long-term view in all of our dealings, we maximize the value of our investments to the benefit of our shareholder, our employees, business partners and all other stakeholders.
