Under the agreement, ADNOC, the world’s largest exporter of sulfur, will steadily supply OCP, the largest worldwide sulfur importer, until 2025. The two parties agreed to consider a gradual increase of the contracted annual volumes. ADNOC exported more than 2 MMmt of granulated sulfur to Morocco in 2016.

Significant synergies exist between ADNOC and OCP, allowing the two companies to explore various opportunities for a larger cooperation.

As a by-product of its sour gas operations, ADNOC and partners produce more than 6 MMtpy of sulfur, exporting it to customers from its state-of-the-art sulfur handling facilities in Ruwais. The amount of sulfur available for export will increase over the next decade as ADNOC and partners brings new sour gas projects on line, as part of its plans to achieve gas self-sufficiency by 2030.
