Etihad Rail received safety clearance from the UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA) to start commercial operations on the 264 km Habshan-Shah-Mirfa-Ruwais line. The rail line begins at the Shah gas fields in the south of UAE and connects to the gas distribution and processing facilities at the port of Ruwais in the north. The rail line will be initially used to transport freight and later passenger services. The project is split into two sections. The first section received the authorization and operates between Shah gas field and the gas processing and distribution facilities at Habshan in the north. It will be used to transport 10,000t of granulated sulphur per day.

A joint venture of Etihad Rail and German Rail (DB) is responsible for operating and maintaining the railway.
