Energy industry gathering ADIPEC hosted by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) unveiled a line-up of more than 40 international ministers to speak at this year’s strategic conference, including eight from the MENA region. 

The ministers from the MENA region, representing some of the largest energy producers in the world, confirmed to speak in the daily Ministerial Panels are Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, UAE; Suhail Mohamed Faraj Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, UAE; Mohammad AbdulLateef Al-Fares, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Oil, and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs, Kuwait; Mohamed bin Mubarak Bin Daina, Minister of Oil and Environment and Special Envoy for Climate Affairs, Kingdom of Bahrain; Tarek El Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Arab Republic of Egypt; Saleh Al Kharabsheh, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Jordan, among others.

With COP27 starting in Egypt the week after ADIPEC, and COP28 coming to the UAE in 2023, policymakers are expected to gather in Abu Dhabi to discuss solutions to the energy security and sustainability challenges, including how to respond to current global energy-market challenges while delivering on climate action and sustainability commitments.

The UAE has taken a leading role in ensuring the basic energy needs of today are met, and economies do not slow down, because that will put the brakes on much-needed investment in climate action.

Ministerial panel discussions at ADIPEC 2022 will encompass the most pertinent sustainability and economic issues around the future of energy supply, security, and affordability. 

Tayba Al Hashemi, Chair of ADIPEC 2022 and CEO of ADNOC Sour Gas said: “Abu Dhabi and the UAE are increasingly seen at the heart of the global dialogue on the future of energy, evidenced by the record number of global government ministers attending. It is an event that convenes the global energy industry and is accelerating a pragmatic and progressive energy transition by ensuring we maintain investment in the energy we need today while investing in the energies of the future.

As well as government ministers, the strategic program at ADIPEC 2022 will be a platform for high-level industry leaders to give insights into strategy, policy, and the future of energy. Participating leadership from key regional companies includes ADNOC Group CEO Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, and Mubadala Energy CEO, Mansoor Mohamed Al Hamed.

ADIPEC 2022 will also feature a new Decarbonisation Zone, providing a focus on methane, hydrogen, Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), and new energies, which will spotlight the industry’s path towards net-zero through the deployment of cleaner forms of energy and innovative technologies.
