The Abu Dhabi Crude Oil Pipeline (ADCOP), which will enable the emirate to answer any challenges to its oil-exporting capabilities, is a 370-km-long, 1.2-metre-wide pipeline running from Habshan in south-western Abu Dhabi to Fujairah's export terminals, located on the Gulf of Oman. Costing some $3bn, the line will be able to transport 1.5m barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil. Although an exact date for the project's completion has yet to be formally announced, the pipeline is expected to be fully operational in summer 2012. Originating from Habshan in Abu Dhabi - the current collection point for Abu Dhabi's onshore crude oil production - ADCOP will terminate in Fujairah. The 48-inch-diametre pipeline has been designed to transport some 1.5 MMBPD of crude oil from ADCO facilities at Habshan over a distance of 370 km to an oil terminal in Fujairah for export through offshore loading facilities.
