Mega oil and gas projects will play an increasingly important role in the industry as it attempts to match global energy demands that are predicted to soar 35 per cent as the world economy and its population grows.
That was the message highlighted at Wednesday’s fourth panel session at ADIPEC 2010.
The first panel of day three at ADIPEC discussed two of the most pressing issues facing the petroleum industry: developing, attracting and retaining a highly skilled workforce and replenishing an ageing workforce with a new generation of future leaders.
ADIPEC 2010 will close its doors today following a record-breaking week that once again placed Abu Dhabi firmly under the world energy industry spotlight.
The Excellence in Energy Awards took place last night with companies and developers receiving accolades recognising their contribution to promoting excellence within the industry.
A key panel session on day 2 of ADIPEC 2010 was dedicated to the important issue of how new technology developments will be vital for the energy sector in the long term to meet the ever growing global energy demands. Oil and gas will continue to play an important role but the shift in the energy mix demands new innovation in the industry.
