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.
