The senior executives, representing many of the world’s major oil, gas and petrochemical companies, have been invited to the third Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable by Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE minister of state and ADNOC Group CEO.

The roundtable, a unique and exclusive, invitation-only gathering to be held under the Chatham House Rule to increase openness of discussion, will provide a high-level forum for dialogue on the evolving dynamics of the energy industry.

The high-level participation by the world’s leading oil, gas and petrochemical chief executives is a demonstration of the convening power of Abu Dhabi as a global hub for the world’s oil and gas industry and its leadership in the conversation around the evolving energy mix.

Breakthrough technologies, including artificial intelligence, data analytics and blockchain, can increase our potential to meet growing energy needs and deliver greater value to shareholders.
