230 experts for Kuwait energy summit
Kuwait, November 4, 2012
More than 200 local and international delegates as well as over 30 country experts will discuss Kuwait’s 2030 Oil & Gas strategy at an energy and infrastructure summit that opened in Kuwait today.
The eighth annual Kuwait Energy and Infrastructure Projects Conference, a four-day conference hosted by business intelligence firm Meed, will run until November 7 at Marriott Courtyard.
The opening day will focus on energy projects with presentations from the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, Kuwait Oil Company and KNPC among others. Day two will be dedicated to infrastructure, while the third day has been set aside for a special PPP focused day led by the Partnership Technical Bureau.
A keynote speaker at the conference, Farouk Al Zanki, chief executive officer of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, said: “The scale of opportunities in Kuwait is unprecedented, and Kuwait Projects 2012 will also provide exclusive insight into the country's long-term blueprint for economic success. The country boasts one of the most buoyant projects market in the region, with plenty of opportunities. These opportunities will be the main focus of the conference.”
Al Zanki will use his address at the conference to update delegates on opportunities and progress developments in exploiting the hydrocarbons sector to optimize Kuwait’s energy resource.
Building on last year's event, the conference has been expanded to include more client-led presentations and case study analysis, providing an in-depth look to give an in-depth insight into the opportunities available in the market.
Increased focus on market research data with detailed sector profiles and forecasts providing invaluable future project information will add a new dimension to the debate with three days of interactive discussion.
Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC) is a Supporting Partner along with the Ministry of Public Works and Partnership Technical Bureau (PTB).
The event’s primary focus will be on the major private sector players to discuss various projects and key associated challenges across sectors including oil & gas, power & water, social & transport infrastructure and finance. – TradeArabia News Service
