World’s energy giants to convene at ADIPEC 2017

ABU DHABI, UAE: An unprecedented number of opportunities for Minister-to-global business leader strategic dialogue, along with a record number of expert submissions on a wide range of industry challenges and trends, will see the world’s energy leaders converge on the UAE capital for the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2017, later this year.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the UAE; hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC); and supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy, the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, ADIPEC will take place from 13 to 16 November 2017, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

The premier meeting place for energy ministers and C-level executives from the world’s oil and gas giants, ADIPEC 2017 will convene under the theme: ‘Forging Ties, Driving Growth.’ It is expected there will be more than 45 ministerial and CEO sessions, up from 25 a year earlier, cementing Abu Dhabi’s leadership status in the global energy industry.

The ADIPEC conference programme, organised in collaboration with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), sets the international standard for the exchange of best-practice and operational excellence in the world of energy, with all technical abstract submissions put through a rigorous evaluation process by the technical programme committee. There have been more than 3,000 technical abstract submissions this year, with more than half submitted from outside the UAE.

ADIPEC 2017 conference sessions include offshore and marine, and security. New this year to ADIPEC is the introduction of global downstream technical sessions, set to drive the conversation on downstream expansion, diversification, technology innovation and R&D.

Key returning features at the event are:

  • ADIPEC Awards, which celebrate excellence in energy
  • Women in Industry Conference, which addresses gender balance in the energy sector
  • Young ADIPEC, a dedicated ‘edutainment’ programme designed to encourage students to choose a career in energy and
  • VIP conference programme for members of the Middle East Petroleum Club.

More than 10,000 delegates, 2,200 exhibiting companies, 900 speakers, and over 100,000 visitors from 135 countries are expected to gather in the UAE capital for ADIPEC 2017, breaking the event’s previous records in international participation, and bringing the world’s decision-makers, industry leaders, and experts under one roof to address the most critical issues surrounding the evolving energy landscape.

The confirmed CEO speakers include Bob Dudley, group chief executive, BP PLC; Datuk Zulkiflee  Ariffin, president and group CEO of Petronas; Patrick Pouyanne, chairman and CEO Total SA; Vagit Alekperov, president, member of the board of directors, and chairman of the management committee at Lukoil; Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO, petroleum and petrochemicals, Mubadala Investment Company; Mario Mehren, chairman of the board of executive directors, Wintershall; Toshiaki Kitamura, president and CEO of INPEX Corporation; and Claudio Descalzi, CEO of Eni.

Their individual perspectives include experience at some of the world’s largest vertically integrated oil and gas companies, including two of the industry ‘supermajors’, operating across a diverse range of international markets, both in terms of exploration and production, and in terms of sales.

They will be joined by the heads of three of the biggest international suppliers of oilfield services: David Dickson, president and CEO at McDermott; Mark McCollum, CEO at Weatherford, and Lorenzo Simonelli, president and CEO at Baker Hughes, a GE company.

Offering a regional perspective on oil and gas investment will be Mansour Al Mulla, chief financial officer, petroleum and petrochemicals, Mubadala Investment Company, while Brian Gilvary, group chief financial officer at BP, will offer an international view.

“Abu Dhabi has always served as an international gathering place for the energy world’s best and brightest. But, this year, ADIPEC is shifting gears to facilitate additional ministerial and C-level executive networking. We believe that this annual event is where global energy strategies are proposed and agreed each year,” said Ali Khalifa Al Shamsi, Al Yasat CEO and ADIPEC 2017 chairman.

“Driving growth in a volatile industrial sector can be challenging at the best of times. ADIPEC 2017, the world’s most influential oil and gas exhibition and conference, is evolving to bring more event attendees fully into the realm of industry decision-making, from passive to active participation, and our new global downstream business leader sessions are testament to this progressive new approach to inclusion,” added Christopher Hudson, president – global energy at dmg events.
