Habshan is an area in the southwestern part of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

It is currently a major oil and gas field for both ADCO and GaSCO companies.[1] It contains oil field and camps for oil workers. The major part of this region is marked as a Red Zone[clarification needed] due to the presence of hydrogen sulphide gas.[citation needed]

The area is a major production area for Sulphur, a byproduct of the oil industry,[2] and is the terminal station of a new railway network in the United Arab Emirates developed by Etihad Rail. Commercial operations on this railway commenced in December 2015.[3]
