Rather than trying to compete with gas rich Qatar for regional and overseas markets, U.A.E has adopted a policy of cooperation in its new gas marketing strategy, which, it is hoped, will reduce oil dependency in the longer term. Associated gas on the Abu Al Bukhush and the non-associated Khuff fields are the most important known sources of gas in the U.A.E, although the sizeable Bab, Bu Hasa, Umm Shaif and Zakum fields all make valuable contributions. Improved oil production techniques coupled with the development of previously unexploited fields and a succession of offshore discoveries have boosted both reserves and output over the past decade. However, plans to develop regions' gas resources may well hamper the development of Abu Dhabi's gas fields since, as part of the Dolphin Project, Qatar's North, Dome field will supply much of the growth in Abu Dhabi's gas requirements over the next few years.
