The principal industrial facilities are located at Ar Ruways, 224 kilometers from the capital. The Ruways Fertilizer Industries plant came on-line in 1983 and uses natural gas as fuel and feedstock. ADNOC owns two-thirds of the plant, and TotalCompagnie Française des Pétroles owns the remainder. The plant was built with a capacity to produce 100 tons per day of ammonia and 1,500 tons per day of urea. Its customers have been mainly India and China. Sulfur extracted through oil and gas processing is exported from a special bulk terminal. A smaller industrial area exists at Al Musallah, just outside the city of Abu Dhabi.
