HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, recently inaugurated Mugharraq Port in Al Dhannah City, in the western (Gharabiyah) Al Dhafra Region.

Strategically located on the western coasts of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the port has served as a hub for offshore, oil and gas, general cargo, logistics support, bulk and break-bulk handling services since 2017.

HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed was briefed on Mugharraq Port’s facilities and its expansion activities upon arrival at the inaugural ceremony. Mugharraq Port, achieved international port status by the UAE’s Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure’s International Code for the Security of Ships and of Port Facilities (ISPS Code).

Since then, the port has developed relationships with international oil and gas companies, channelling essential cargo, such as oil and petrochemicals. The first international shipment was received in August 2022.

“Today’s inauguration of Mugharraq Port reflects our commitment to the continued enhancement of our wider maritime and logistics capabilities within the Al Dhafra Region,” commented HH Sheikh Hamdan.

“AD Ports Group’s strategic investment projects will continue to aid the development of the Al Dhafra Region, as well as promote growth opportunities for local businesses, supporting economic growth, enhancing leisure and recreation, and preserving the region’s rich maritime heritage,” observed Falah Al Ahbabi, Chairman, AD Ports Group.

“The expansion of Mugharraq Port will attract more international companies, particularly within the energy and shipping sectors, which will significantly benefit from the specialised services offered,” remarked Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Managing Director and Group CEO, AD Ports Group.
