Energy markets are changing, driven by a set of micro and macroeconomic trends, transforming the way businesses operate and creating new pathways that drive innovation and sustainability.
It is against this backdrop that the ADIPEC 2022 conference programmes are shaped, providing both strategic and technical insights that gather over 1,200 global policy makers, energy CEOs and industry professionals to discuss key trends shaping the future of energy; what are the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition, geopolitical factors, new finance and partnership frameworks and the latest technical developments.
Taking place pre COP27, ADIPEC 2022 is positioned as the global forum for leaders to reinforce strategies and commitments that will drive the industry towards reducing emissions and meeting net-zero goals.
Securing affordable and clean energy systems
ADIPEC 2022 will bring together policy makers, energy leaders and industry professionals for an unparalleled opportunity to share insights on the latest trends affecting the global energy ecosystem including geopolitical shifts, the evolving global economy, energy supply and next generation energy solutions.
With the return of the Conference of Parties (COP) to the Middle East by way of COP27 and COP28, ADIPEC is positioned to advance the industry’s ambitions in relation to climate change, the energy transition and net-zero energy systems along with the business and operating model changes required to support them. Recognising accompanying talent agendas, innovation ambitions and a commitment to authentic leadership are equally critical in ensuring success as the energy market pivots more quickly than ever before.
Creating Real Value Through Technical Expertise
The ADIPEC Technical Conference is the world’s largest technical meeting place for oil, gas and energy engineers worldwide, providing unprecedented access to the latest industry knowledge, technical expertise, applications, products, solutions and services.
The Technical Conference programme comprises of 135 technical conference sessions and 6 technical panel sessions, presented by more than 1,000 expert speakers, providing the right platform to source the knowledge, technology, innovation and partnerships required to ensure future operational and technical resilience.
Charting a low carbon future for the offshore and marine industry
The global offshore and marine industry is at a pivotal moment as pressures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensify. Strategic collaboration between governments, policymakers and the private sector has become essential to achieving decarbonisation targets across the industry value chain. Future operations are destined to be powered by a variety of fuels though it will take time, requiring the industry to be flexible in its approach to retrofitting vessels and optimising operational performance to reduce emissions. Digital advances are increasing efficiency and accelerating decarbonisation, requiring new and diverse talent, as well as significant investments and new finance models.
The ADIPEC 2022 Offshore and Marine Conference will bring together industry leaders, influencers and decision-makers from the global offshore and marine supply chain, to share their insights and perspectives on the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. There is no template for navigating the changes required but it is clear the time to act is now.
Supporting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Energy
The ADIPEC Forum for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will provide a platform to discuss the structural inequalities that the industry is facing. With relevant insights from international experts, global leaders and advocates of diversity, equity and inclusion, the conference is set to help develop a roadmap to support organisations in creating equitable solutions that attract and retain talent and build a resilient and sustainable energy industry.
Transforming The Future of Global Manufacturing
The future of manufacturing is changing; the adoption of smart technologies, application of digital strategies, the transition from a linear economy to a circular economy and the evolution of post pandemic government industrial strategies will fast track the development of new industrial hubs, redefining the future of manufacturing and our understanding of global supply chains. For smart manufacturing strategies to move forward, industrial policy, industry leadership and investment is needed, providing the basis for new partnerships and ensuring that the industry is fast developing.
Industry 4.0: Redefining Technological Innovation in Manufacturing
The Smart Manufacturing Technical Conference will unlock innovative strategies and insights on how manufacturers can streamline and future-proof their operations to enhance performance. With greater emphasis on responsive and distributed supply chains, IIoT continues to drive growth by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning with advanced data analytics. These technologies are fundamental enablers for intelligent manufacturing, empowering businesses with improved processes to make smarter decisions.
The conference will explore disruptive technologies and practical solutions to complexities manufacturers are facing in the digital era, through case studies and real-time demonstrations from expert practitioners. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the latest advancements that are accelerating efficiency in the industry, and jointly decode the most common challenges arising in the deployment of intelligent manufacturing technologies.
Optimising downstream operations amid the energy transition
The ADIPEC Downstream Technical Conference will offer the opportunity for industry leaders, experts, and decision makers to discover the newest global downstream market trends, investment opportunities and growth trajectory that will help boost the competitive advantage of refining and petrochemical businesses in the face of the energy transition.
Featuring four new downstream technical categories, the 2022 downstream conference will play a key role for the industry to access updates on the latest technologies, sustainable solutions, hydrogen capabilities, process integrations and optimisations.
Creating decarbonisation strategies for a sustainable future
The Decarbonisation Conference, taking place in the Decarbonisation Theatre is a new and engaging programme gathering global experts to share their insights into the most innovative strategies and technologies centered on four pivotal themes for the industry: Methane, Hydrogen, Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), and New Energies.
The Decarbonisation Conference will feature a series of interviews and technical presentations from leading industry innovators and solution providers.
