Infrastructure and Renewal - Stronger: The pipeline is relatively new and ADCOP expects its useful life to be at least 40 years.
However, they differ from ADCOP in their contractual structure and risk profile.
And even if ADCOP was up and running when the Iranians struck, it would not be able to transport anywhere near the daily outflow of 15-17 million b/d through the strait, and none of Qatar's LNG exports.
The Chinese also played a key role in the UAE's ADCOP project.
is a single purpose company that was established in September 2017 to own the crude oil pipeline running from Habshan to the port of Fujairah in UAE.
owns an approximately 406 km pipeline that carries ADNOC Onshore's crude oil from a collection centre in Abu Dhabi to the Fujairah oil export terminal, which provides access to international shipping routes.
The ADCOP will run from the Habshan in Abu Dhabi to the port of Fujairah.
ADCOP is intended to eliminate the need for oil tankers to pass through the Straits of Hormuz and allow the tankers to be loaded at the deep water port in Fujairah.
This strategic 370-km ADCOP will includes a 1m b/d main crude oil terminal at Fujairah and three single point mooring buoys for deep-water tanker loading.
The ADCOP system and terminal have been designed in a way which will allow IPIC to double its capacity to 3m b/d should the need to bypass Hormuz arise in the future, with the state-owned ADNOC having Abu Dhabi's crude oil production capacity to rise to almost 4m b/d before 2020.
, being fast-tracked for completion in late 2009, will involve building storage and terminal facilities for crude oil export.
