Energy markets are changing, driven by evolving micro and macroeconomic trends, transforming the way businesses operate and creating new pathways that drive innovation and sustainability. With the critical COP28 climate conference taking place in the UAE less than two months after ADIPEC, the event will act as a crucial forum for the entire energy value chain to address the most pressing issues around the security, affordability and sustainability of energy.
It is against this backdrop that the ADIPEC 2023 conference programmes will provide strategic and technical insights, hosting over 1,500 ministers, global policy makers and energy CEOs, and welcoming more than 15,000 delegates, to discuss the key trends shaping the future of energy, including the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition, geopolitical factors influencing energy markets, new finance and partnership frameworks and the latest technical developments.
Securing affordable and clean energy systems
Energy markets are facing significant challenges, accompanied by geopolitical shifts affecting global economic growth and energy security. Amidst the uncertainties, there is an increased focus on climate change, sustainability and the reassessment of investment priorities in energy markets.
Leaders, organisations and businesses are expected to clearly articulate strategies and commitments on sustainability, climate change and decarbonisation. New technologies, strategic investments, low-carbon solutions and government policies are setting the pace for change, creating a new energy ecosystem designed to meet society’s climate expectations.
The ADIPEC Strategic Conference 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 system.
Creating real value through technical expertise
The ADIPEC Technical Conference is the single largest technical meeting place for oil, gas and energy engineers and professionals worldwide, providing unprecedented access to the latest industry knowledge, innovations, technical expertise, applications, products, solutions and services.
Organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers and spearheaded by Mr. Mohamed Al Marzouqi, ADIPEC 2023 Technical Programme Committee Chair and SVP, Development Function, ADNOC, the technical conference sessions cover a wide and diverse range of technical and engineering insights that will drive ideas, overcome challenges, create new value and highlight innovation.
With the Call for Papers now open, technical energy professionals have the opportunity to submit abstracts before Friday 31 March 2023 to be considered for the ADIPEC Technical Conference.
Hydrogen Strategic Conference
Embracing the potential of hydrogen for a net-zero future
Hydrogen is rapidly emerging as one of the key energy sources as the world targets both decarbonisation and the need to meet future energy demands. The Hydrogen Strategic Conference will bring together some of the most influential leaders in the energy ecosystem to discuss the role that hydrogen is playing, and what is required next. From accelerated investment, infrastructure developments, and technology advancements, to increased cooperation between stakeholders, the Hydrogen Strategic Conference will help set the agenda ahead of COP28 and shape the growth of the entire hydrogen value chain.
Creating decarbonisation strategies for a sustainable future
The Decarbonisation Conference will bring together key voices across the energy value chain to explore innovative technologies and strategies to build clean energy systems and deliver tangible results from global net-zero pledges. With a focus on renewable energy deployment, carbon & methane management and decarbonising industrial systems, the conference will set the stage for the next phase of scaling up zero-emission technology, highlighting the supporting policies needed to enable a clean energy transition.
SMART MANUFACTURING STRATEGIC CONFERENCE
Building long-term resilience in industrial manufacturing
The future of manufacturing is changing; the adoption of smart technologies, the 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.
SMART MANUFACTURING TECHNICAL CONFERENCE
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.
MARITIME & LOGISTICS CONFERENCE
Charting a low carbon future for the maritime and logistics industry
The global maritime and logistics 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 Forum for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Maximising the impact of diversity, equity and inclusion across the energy industry
The ADIPEC Forum for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion provides 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 will develop a roadmap to support organisations in creating equitable solutions that attract and retain talent and build a resilient and sustainable energy industry.
Future Leaders Conference
Inspiring the next generation of talent in the energy industry
With changes to energy business models, from new requirements for supply chain resilience, to growing cyber threats, the nature of working in the energy industry is constantly evolving. With these changes come new expectations from the talent pool of the future, challenging the industry to put adequate transition strategies in place and recalibrate towards a more sustainable model. Energy industry leaders are now updating their businesses to attract a well-equipped and inspired workforce to transform the industry.
DOWNSTREAM TECHNICAL CONFERENCE
Decarbonising downstream operations through innovation and collaboration
The ADIPEC Downstream Technical Conference offers a wide-reaching platform for the downstream industry. The Conference will continue to bring together downstream leaders, experts and innovators from across the energy industry to share the latest strategies, technologies and best practice on operational transformation, circularity, energy efficiency, hydrogen capabilities and talent management.
Leadership Roundtables - Invite Only
Defining the global energy future
The invitation-only ADIPEC Leadership Roundtables gather Ministers, C-level industry executives and policymakers to explore the new ideas and transformative thinking, shaping the energy sector.
