Mubadala Petroleum, the Abu Dhabi-based international energy company and the wholly-owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund, has unveiled its new brand name, Mubadala Energy.

The new brand reflects a fresh strategic direction that will see Mubadala Energy build on its contribution to the energy transition by expanding its gas-weighted portfolio in areas such as LNG while exploring new energy sectors including blue hydrogen and carbon capture. The strategy also sees a strategic focus on decarbonizing the business while driving innovation and technology across all operations.

Making the change in its tenth year of operations, the company has continued to grow and now spans eleven markets, employing over 500 people. This year it also reached the significant production milestone of 500,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day (boed) for the first time in its history, marking a 22 percent increase in production from 2021.

“We are tremendously proud of what we have achieved since we were founded ten years ago. But today is the right time to signal our focus on energy transition through a bold new brand. We are building on a track record that has seen significant growth through an expanding gas portfolio, and with our deep capabilities and strong partnerships around the world, we are well positioned to embark on a new chapter in our story as Mubadala Energy.”

Mr. Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO of UAE Investments at Mubadala Investment Company and Chairman of Mubadala Energy, commented that “Mubadala Energy has earned its place as a major player on the international energy stage. This new brand identity accurately reflects the business’s next phase of growth aligned with the energy transition through a gas-weighted portfolio and an increased focus on more sustainable energy sectors.”

In 2017, Mubadala Energy shifted its strategy to natural gas as a key bridge fuel in the energy transition. This strategic pivot saw the company realize key projects such as the acquisition of a 10 percent participating interest in Egypt’s Zohr gas field within the Shorouk Concession, and the more recent investment to acquire a 22 percent stake in the Tamar Gas field, offshore Israel.

Other major gas projects include Mubadala Energy’s operated Pegaga gas field in Malaysia, which recently achieved its first commercial gas, hitting the production milestone of 500 million standard cubic feet and 16,000 barrels of condensate per day.
