Tuesday, January 08, 2019
The third annual Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum will be held in Abu Dhabi on 11-13 January 2019 to set the global energy agenda for the year and examine the long-term geopolitical and geo-economic implications of the changing energy landscape.
For the third consecutive year, the forum will be held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces.
“We are gathering at a time of rapid geopolitical and technological change, which is challenging energy markets and governments around the world,” said Frederick Kempe, president and CEO of the Atlantic Council.
“For that reason, each year we convene in Abu Dhabi some of the world’s most important policy and business actors to discuss how these shifts are driving innovation, investments, corporate strategy, geopolitics and the energy sector as a whole.”
Convened in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and Mubadala Investment Company, Sharjah-based Crescent Petroleum as platinum co-chair, the forum is part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
The 2019 Forum will focus on four key themes: the future of oil, the digitisation of energy, diversification within energy companies and countries, and will have a regional focus on East and Southeast Asia energy demand and energy innovation. The speakers include HE Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, UAE minister of energy and industry; Khalid Al-Falih, minister of energy, industry, and mineral resources, Saudi Arabia; HE Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE minister of state and CEO of ADNOC; Musabbeh Al-Kaabi, CEO, Petroleum and Petrochemicals, Mubadala Investment Company; and Mohammad Barkindo, secretary general, Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, among others.
