ADIPEC 2016 Day 1 Highlights

His Highness Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of the Abu Dhabi Crown Princes Court, formally inaugurated the largest ever Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), marking the start of four days of high-level industry discussions that will shape policies and strategies for the new energy landscape.
Four of the worlds most influential people in the global oil and gas industry have opened the largest edition of ADIPEC. His Excellency Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, officially started the 32nd ADIPEC conference with a series of powerful, positive messages for the dignitaries, delegates and visitors packing the ADNEC Al Maa'rad hall. He took the podium alongside His Excellency Suhail Mohammed Faraj Al Mazroui, UAE Energy Minister, His Excellency Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, Secretary General of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC) and Rex Tillerson, Chairman, President, and CEO of Exxon Mobil Corporation.

The first of two Global Ministerial Dialogues brought together international ministers and decision makers who offered insights on driving sustainability and shaping future energy scenarios amid an evolving global supply mix.

Speakers included H.E. Suhail Mohammad Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei, UAE Minister of Energy, H.E. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Oil and Gas Affairs Minister for the Kingdom of Bahrain, and H.E. Dr Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Rumhy, Minister of Oil and Gas for the Sultanate of Oman.

ADIPECs opening day also featured one of three Global Business Leader sessions, offering a world outlook for the oil industry, and shedding light on what challenges and opportunities to expect in the short, medium, and long-term economic cycles.
Speakers in the first of the three sessions included Darren W. Woods, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Patrick Pouyann, Chairman and CEO of Total; Bob Dudley, CEO of BP; Saad Sherida Al Kaabi, President and CEO, Qatar Petroleum; and Claudio Descalzi, CEO, ENI.
The ADIPEC Global Meetings Programme, the official one-to-one business matchmaking tool for exhibitors and delegates at ADIPEC 2016 was a huge success allowing exhibitors to connect and arrange meetings with key contacts. These meetings helped exhibitors drive new business and create future partnerships with global oil and gas companies and service providers.
