, June 6, 2013
Experts will address the geo-politics of energy, and safey and security of energy infrastructure in the Middle East at a forum, to be held in November in Dubai.
The 9th Middle East Energy Security (Meesec) Forum, to take place from November 25 to 27, will conduct workshops that will expand on the assessment of threats and the scope to protect operations through business continuity management.
The forum will look into the risks invovled with mixing oil and politics and the impact of the Arab Spring to energy security and the assessment of safety and security in maritime and critical infrastructure, with emphasis on threat preparedness within the region.
The Middle East has one the highest average energy consumption per capita, with oil accounting for 50 per cent as the primary source of energy to any other region in the world, as reported in a Huffington Post article.
With constant shifts in energy demands, key players are subjected to potential threats to investments, price volatility and alternative fuel choices. The risk to global energy also increases due to geopolitical involvement.
The forum will also focus on maritime security, supported by the Security Association for Maritime Industry (Sami), an international independent non-governmental organization for the maritime security industry and a focal point for global maritime security matters. - TradeArabia News Service
