JNOC (Japan National Oil Corporation; the predecessor of JOGMEC) and ADNOC signed a comprehensive research agreement on the development of oil and gas reservoirs in January 2000. The agreement was inherited by JOGMEC when JOGMEC was established in February 2004, and was subsequently expanded to include the use of Japanese advanced technologiesin February 2013.

This agreement now expands to include CCS/CCUS, methane management and other low-carbon technologies.It is expected that the expansion of the MOU will strengthen the relationships between ADNOC and Japanese companies including JOGMEC.
