KPC Sponsors 4th Oil & Gas Oil Conference
Kuwait Petroleum Corporation announced its participation in the 4th Oil & Gas Conference, taking place from the 11th till the 12th April 2016 at Jumeriah hotel.
The Summit will feature an interactive programme designed to engage in forward-thinking debate and build relationships with the industry leaders. Kuwait awarded projects worth a record $32 billion last year and plans to raise the figure in 2016 despite a sharp decline in oil revenues, therefore making Kuwait very attractive to international investors.
Nizar Al-Adsani, Deputy Chairman & CEO, KPC stated "it gives me great pleasure to announce that the 4th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit will be supported by KPC. This highly interactive Summit provides an ideal vehicle for stakeholders to review the progress that is being made and discuss recommendations for future collaboration and growth".
The Summit boasts an impressive array of distinguished speakers, with the opening session featuring Andrew Brown, Shell's Upstream Director, Jamal Abdulaziz Jaafar, CEO, KOC, and Jason Bordoff, Founding Director of the Center of Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, who summed up the Summit aims: "The Kuwait Oil and Gas Summit is a valuable opportunity to foster a deeper shared understanding of how different regions are responding to a rapidly changing global energy system".
