ABU DHABI, 28 October 2022 – The energy trilemma of security, affordability and sustainability will be at the centre of discussions when Ministers from 40 countries, policy makers and energy industry leaders gather in Abu Dhabi for ADIPEC 2022 from 31 October to 3 November.

A new feature at ADIPEC 2022 is the Decarbonisation Zone and Conference, which will provide an in-depth focus on the cleaner forms of energy and innovative technologies bridging to net-zero, with an emphasis on methane, hydrogen, CCUS and new energies.

The Decarbonisation Conference will host Bjørn Otto Sverdrup, OGCI Executive Committee Chair and, Steven Hamburg, Environmental Defence Fund Chief Scientist and SVP, who will share their views on methane management as a priority action and address the growing demand for robust, reliable methane emissions data on a worldwide scale.
