Oil, gas and petrochemical projects, valued at more than US $859
billion, are either underway or planned in the Middle East and North Africa, of
these US $283 billion are projects are being implemented, as the region gets
ready to meet the forecast increases in demand for energy over the next two
According to industry forecasts global oil demand will increase
by at least 10 million barrels per day by 2040, while natural gas demand is set
to grow by 40 per cent and petrochemicals by 60 per cent. The expansion in
demand for petroleum and petrochemicals in particular, says dmg, is driving
downstream investment across the MENA region.
Christopher Hudson, President – dmg::events, organisers of the
Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition (ADIPEC), said: “Breakthrough
technologies, the growing global population and rising consumer spending are
all combining to create new demand for energy, much of which will continue to
be met by the oil and gas industry up to and beyond 2040.
“While producers in the Middle East continue to maximize value
from existing fields, there is heightened interest in developing new resources,
both offshore and onshore, as well as investing in upgrading and diversifying both
infrastructure and products downstream to create new products lines and revenue
“ADIPEC 2019 will be a catalyst for future growth and prosperity
in the oil and gas industry, not only providing companies across the
hydrocarbons value chain with a forum to gather first-hand knowledge of the
dynamic changes taking place in regional oil and gas investment decisions but
also enabling them to make the connections necessary to forge new partnerships
and tap into the emerging commercial opportunities those investments are
creating,” Hudson added.
According to research conducted by MEED, the business
intelligence and analytics specialist, Saudi Aramco is the largest single
spender in the region’s oil and gas sector, with more than US $31 billion-worth
of contracts under execution. The next three highest spenders are Kuwait’s
three largest oil and gas companies with a combined US $42.2 billion worth of
projects underway. Meanwhile, MEED says, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company has
projects, with a combined contract value of US $16.7 billion under execution
across both its onshore and offshore upstream businesses. Outside the GCC
Iraq’s State Company for Oil Project and Algeria’s Sonatrach have US $13.7
billion-worth of projects in progress.
Leading the way in terms of pre execution contract values is
Iraq’s Ministry of Oil, with projects worth US $19.5 billion in the pipeline,
US $13.7 billion of which is in the bidding phase, according to a list of top
oil and gas projects under execution, compiled by MEED. Egypt’s Ministry of
Petroleum has plans for US 12.3 billion worth of projects; the Kuwait Oil
Company has a US $12.3 billion project pipeline and Algeria’s Sonatrach has
announced plans to go ahead with US $10.8 billion-worth of projects, including
a US $2.5 billion contract for the Hassi Messaoud refinery.
Away from the MENA region, Asia is forecast to see 130 new crude
and natural gas projects starting operations over the next eight years,
contributing around 518,000 barrels per day and close to 11.5 billion cubic
feet per day of gas production. According to GlobalData, a leading data
analytics and consulting company, 76 of the new developments fall under an
early-stage category, while 54 of the new projects have progressed to
well-defined development plans. India will lead the way 62 projects, followed
by China with 20 and Indonesia with 19. Malaysia will drive natural gas
Taking place in November, ADIPEC 2019 will once again be a
platform for the global oil and gas industry to engage in dialogue, conduct
business, and source the creative solutions and strategies that will shape the
industry in the years ahead as well as identify the commercial opportunities
from the MENA and Asia regions. In common with previous years, ADIPEC’s
conference and technical sessions continue to evolve to reflect the changes
taking place in the energy sector. Oil & Gas 4.0, the strategic conference
at ADIPEC 2019 will feature conference sessions that will explore the nexus of
technology and energy. Other sessions will examine the agile business models
and new partnership eco-systems that are at the core of the global energy
Since its inauguration in 1984, ADIPEC has continued to grow,
gaining worldwide recognition as the premier oil and gas industry exhibition
and conference. The exhibition brings together over 2,200 international
exhibiting companies across 155,000 gross square metres, with 29 country
pavilions, attracting over 145,000 global attendees and 42 National and

Company (ADNOC) and supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy, the Abu Dhabi
Chamber, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, ADIPEC will take
