Under the patronage of Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, the event will be organised by the Gulf downstream association (GDA), in cooperation with the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA), with support from national, regional and international companies.

Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, minister of oil, emphasised the status of the activities of the oil and gas sector and petrochemicals, in Middle East, praising the existing cooperation between the GDA and other organisations and NOGA in choosing Bahrain to hold their events.

He further extended the support of the government of Bahrain in attracting and hosting specialised events, in the oil and gas sector.

The conference will be a replacement for the series of petro-tech conference and exhibition, and it would be a strategic platform for the industry leaders to meet the business challenges, exchange best practices and create opportunities through cooperation and strategic partnerships.

Khalifa Al Khalifa further stated that this conference and its exhibition aims to involve regional stakeholders and international partners in all parts of the business community, academia and technological services providers to take advantage of the opportunities for investment, innovation and growth.

Mohammad Ghazi Al-Mutairi, board chairman of the GDA, thanked the government for supporting and encouraging the GDA. He said that the conference will cover a wide range of topics including the issues of regional integration and cooperation for attracting investment and creating a qualified labour force across the region.
