H.E. Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, in his key note address said: “ADIPEC has become the premier destination for the oil and gas industry, a place to reconnect explore new opportunities and debate how we can collectively push the boundaries of our industry.”

“The new energy era offers great new opportunities, but to fully unlock those opportunities we require a new model of partnership across the whole value chain of this industry — one that creates real and tangible value by bringing technology, experience, financial resources, and market access to the table.

“At OPEC, we are extremely proud to see such an event taking place in a member country,” he said. “The oil and gas industry is one of the most vital global economic sectors and will continue to be so for years to come. These energy resources will remain vital in continuing to provide heat, lights, and mobility to billions of human beings on this earth.”
