UAE Oil and Gas Market Opportunity

This expanded production provides opportunities for U.S. oil and gas firms across a wide range of technologies, equipment, machinery, and services, including: 

•    New enhanced oil recovery technologies that will help lower operational expenditure and extend the lifespan of producing fields
•    Advanced technologies that provide alternatives to using gas to maintain oil well pressure
•    Drilling equipment and chemicals

U.S. oil and gas companies are strategically positioned as preferred suppliers and contractors for the UAE, though they should expect tough competition from Asian, European and local firms.  To learn more about these opportunities and the UAE’s competitive landscape, please contact the U.S. Commercial Service in Dubai at
