Companies from the U.A.E. have participated in several business events in the United States in 2013. In May, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and its Group of Companies attended the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas, for the third straight year. ADNOC brought a state-of-the-art booth to the conference, seeking to highlight its future goals as well as the heritage of the U.A.E.
ADNOC executives also gave several presentations at OTC and the events surrounding it. They discussed the plans of the U.A.E. to up oil production by nearly a million barrels per day and to continue to seek business opportunities with American companies. ADNOC’s OTC booth drew close to 30,000 visitors overall, including more than 1,500 who applied for jobs with the company.
