May 19 (Reuters) - Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) on Thursday announced three oil discoveries including one at Bu Hasa, Abu Dhabi’s biggest onshore field, with a crude oil production capacity of 650,000 barrels per day (bpd), the company said on Thursday.

ADNOC said the second oil find was in Abu Dhabi’s Onshore Block 3, operated by Occidental OXY.N, and around 100 million barrels of oil in place were discovered.

In the third discovery, around 50 million barrels of light and sweet Murban-quality crude were found in the Al Dhafra Petroleum Concession, ADNOC said.
