ADIPEC will launch the inaugural Offshore and Marine Conference, located in a purpose-built dedicated waterside theatre at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC)
The event will see more than 40 industry experts talk about offshore oil and gas opportunities.
“New field discoveries indicate the future of oil and gas lies offshore, and this creates the pressing need for a dedicated platform where experts from the sector can meet with the common goal of sustainably advancing offshore exploration and production,” said Jean-Philippe Cossé, ADIPEC 2015 event director at dmg events.
The oil and gas industry’s commitment to innovation, research, and development will ultimately determine its capacity to sustainably meet the ever-growing global demand for energy, experts said ahead of the largest Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) to date.
Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, ADIPEC will take place from 9-12 November at ADNEC, marking the 18th edition of the world’s landmark event for the energy sector.
The theme for ADIPEC this year is ‘Innovation and Sustainability in a New Energy World’, bringing together the best and brightest minds including ministers, senior-level industry executives, world renowned energy experts, and thought-leaders to shed light on the critical topics driving the transformation of the energy sector – from the innovative technologies advancing exploration and production, to the evolving global energy mix and the emerging role of unconventional resources, according to organisers dmg events.
Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, director of Strategy & Coordination at the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and ADIPEC 2015 chairman, said, “Global leaders across the sector recognise the value that ADIPEC brings and the role it plays in support of industry development and growth. This positively reflects on ADIPEC and is what has helped the event achieve significant growth over the last three decades of its history.”
Fifteen National Oil Companies and 15 International Oil Companies have already confirmed their participation this year, including regional market players the Kuwait Oil Company, Qatar Petroleum, and Saudi Aramco, as well as global giants BP, ExxonMobil, Shell and Total.
Award-winning author Daniel Yergin will offer keen insights on the challenges and opportunities to meeting the ever-growing global energy demand, including recent developments in the areas of conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon resources at the ADIPEC 2015 keynote presentation.
ADIPEC is supported by the Ministry of Energy, ADNOC, and the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and organised by dmg events. The event is expected to host more than 2,000 exhibitors from more than 120 countries, 85,000 attendees, and 7,000 delegates this year.
Three country pavilions that will make its debut this year are Saudi Arabia, Japan and Ireland.
