Abu Dhabi, one of seven states in the United Arab Emirates, holds more than 90 percent of the federation's 98 billion barrels of crude oil reserves.
The UAE, OPEC's fourth largest producer, aims to boost crude oil production capacity from 3.2 million barrels per day at present to 3.5 million bpd at the end of the year.
Over the past few months, ADNOC has awarded concession rights at offshore sites to several international oil companies to boost its long-term production capacity.
It also renewed and extended concessions at onshore oilfields for major companies including Exxonmobil and Total.
Last month, ADNOC invited bids for exploration contracts for six major blocks with untapped oil and gas reserves.
ADNOC said the blocks are estimated to hold billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas.
