The chief executives of BP, Saudi Aramco, France’s Total, China’s CNPC, Exxon Mobil and Lukoil were among a gathering of the world’s most senior energy company executives in Abu Dhabi on Sunday to discuss critical issues facing the industry.
The high-profile gathering is being held ahead of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (Adipec) 2017, one of the world’s largest energy gatherings, which begins on Monday in the capital.
“This was an important and unique opportunity for oil and gas industry leaders to share insights and perspectives on the evolving energy landscape and how it’s influencing supply and demand for our products. The roundtable enabled us to engage in open discussion and reflect on the technological and economic factors shaping the oil, gas and petrochemical industries," said host Dr Sultan Al Jaber, the chief executive of Adnoc.
The roundtable, moderated by Daniel Yergin, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author and energy economist, was held at Adnoc headquarters in the capital.
