Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Forum To Be Held In Abu Dhabi On January 11

The third annual Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum will be held in Abu Dhabi on 11th to 13th January, 2019. The premier event gathers international and regional political, industry, and thought leaders 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 a third consecutive year, the Forum will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE 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's Ministry of Energy and Industry, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, ADNOC, and Mubadala Investment Company, with 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.

Speakers include: Suhail bin Mohammed Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei, UAE Minister of Energy and Industry; Khalid Al-Falih, Saudi Minister of Energy, Industry, and Mineral Resources; Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO; Musabbeh Al-Kaabi, CEO, Petroleum and Petrochemicals, Mubadala Investment Company; Mohammad Barkindo, Secretary-General of Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries; Claudio Descalzi, Chief Executive Officer, Eni S.p.A.; Lisa Davis, Chief Executive Officer, Energy, and Member of the Managing Board, Siemens AG; Yongsoo Huh, CEO of GS Energy; Majid Jafar, CEO of Crescent Petroleum; Adam Sieminski, President of KAPSARC; and Masakazu Toyoda, Chair and CEO, Institute of Energy Economics, Japan.
