Adnoc toasts its resilience

Reforms in response to the last industry downturn have equipped Abu Dhabi’s oil heavyweight to cope with the current crisis

State-owned Adnoc has, according to chief executive Sultan al-Jaber, left behind its conservative past in a "transformation" over his four-year tenure that has positioned it to "better respond to changing market dynamics".

The company is nimbler and better able to cope than it was during the 2014-16 price crash.
