Manama, April 17, 2014
More than 120 government and private sector representatives responsible for Bahrain's energy sector will discuss the latest challenges and issues facing the industry at the upcoming Bahrain Energy Forum 2014.
Held under the patronage of the Minister of Finance and the Minister in Charge of Oil and Gas Affairs for Bahrain, Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, the event will take place from April 21 to 23 at the Crowne Plaza.
Organised by Meed in partnership with Bahrain's National Oil & Gas Authority (Noga), Bahrain Energy Forum 2014 will see delegates explore a range of challenges and solutions to deliver the energy sector plans and projects in the years leading up to 2030.
The Forum will provide participants with a comprehensive update of the exciting plans and associated project opportunities across the Kingdom’s oil and gas, electricity and water production and heavy industry sectors. The Forum also serves to reaffirm Bahrain’s historic position as the energy hub of the Gulf and the wider Middle East.
Edmund O’Sullivan, chairman, Meed Events, added, “With a project pipeline valued at over $14 billion, Bahrain's energy sector is poised for significant growth and opportunity.”
“We're pleased to be hosting the Forum in cooperation with NOGA, and believe it provides a unique platform to engage with industry leaders and to explore key projects and the outlook for the sector.
“Alongside the Forum, we have also developed a series of pre-event activities on 21 April including a master-class which provides participants with insight on how to establish effective energy efficiency governance structures and a site visit to GPIC to review their work and environmental initiatives,” he added.
Strategic partners of the Forum include Noga Holding, Gulf Petrochemical Industries (GPIC), Bahrain National Gas Expansion Company (BNGEC), Banagas, Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), Skaugen Gulf Petchem Carriers (SGPC), Bahrain Lube Base Oil Company, Tatweer Petroleum and Bahrain Aviation Fuelling Company (Bafco).
