Downstream Director, ADNOC
As the downstream director of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Abdulaziz Alhajri retains his rank in this year’s ‘Power 50’ list. Under ADNOC’s 2030 Strategy, the company has placed significant focus on its downstream business with plans to double crude refining capacity and triple production of petrochemical and higher value products to take full advantage of the fastest growing segment in the oil and gas industry.
Alhajri’s experience at Borouge could prove crucial in making this strategy a reality. He spent almost a decade as CEO of Borouge, and a combined 25 years in senior management roles. Prior to joining Borouge, Alhajri was assistant general manager at Gasco, another ADNOC affiliate. Under his leadership, ADNOC and Cepsa recently signed an MoU to evaluate a new world-scale linear alkyl benzene complex in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.
