1.0 Introduction
The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is a World leading energy producer established in 1971 and headquartered in Abu Dhabi. Its operations are anchored in the overall hydrocarbon value chain through a network of fully-integrated businesses with diverse interests ranging from exploration, production, storage, refining and distribution of a wide range of petrochemical products. The company objectives are creating improved efficiencies through benchmark performance, integrating a balanced scorecard approach in the entire group and aligning with their key performance indicators. The vision include working collaboratively in harnessing energy resources nation services while their mission is operating through partnership, innovation and a relentless focus on high performance and efficiency for maximizing value for energy resources. ADNOC management has initiated a process of merging its two largest offshore operations. As noted by Yusuf et al. (2015), merging is intended to streamline management and operations to drive entrepreneurial culture to attain a prolonged low oil price environment. The strategy involves the merging of the Zakum Development Company (Zadco) and the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco). This strategy is expected to lead to a significant implication in the organisation HR strategy (Rai & Victor, 2012). In this case, this report would evaluate on the extent to which the change in organisation design in the merger would influence HR strategies. ADNOC company organisation design has dedicated offshore companies including Zadco and Adma-Opco with offshore companies involved in development and delivery of oil from Abu Dhabi waters (see figure 1 below)

The current HR strategy in ADNOC includes developing world-class talent, enhancing HR recruitment strategy and employee capacity development considering the aggressive upcoming project expansion. It equally operates through an HR master plan and integrated workforce planning in the overall group, linking the recruitment to the business strategy and a competency-based performance management system.
