The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has "activated necessary business continuity plans" following the explosion at its Mussafah fuel depot.

In a statement released on Twitter, ADNOC said the move will "ensure the reliable, uninterrupted supply of products to its local and international customers".

The firm added that it would work to ensure the safety of its employees.

It comes after three people were killed and six more wounded after three fuel tankers exploded in Abu Dhabi's Musaffah area.

"ADNOC is deeply saddened to confirm that three colleagues have died. A further six colleagues were injured and received immediate specialist medical care," it added in its statement on Monday night.

The firm said it's working "closely with the relevant authorities to determine the exact cause" into the incident.
