Al-Falih Set to Attend Top Global Gathering of Energy Leaders
Khalid Al-Falih, Saudi Arabia's Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, and Amin Nasser, CEO of Saudi Aramco, will speak at the World Energy Congress to be held in Istanbul on 09-13 October.
The World Energy Congress is the most inclusive global energy event and the first since COP21. It brings together all nations, all forms of energy and all stakeholders in a neutral environment.
Al-Falih joins the industry’s elite at the Congress, including BP’s Bob Dudley, Gazprom’s Alexey Miller and EDF’s Jean-Bernard Lévy. Additionally, top executives from Royal Dutch Shell, GE, Total, ENGIE, VNG, DESFA, and China National Nuclear will be speaking at the Congress on major issues facing the energy industry.
Other speakers include representatives from intergovernmental and international organizations, including the EU, the IEA and the WWF, as well as ministers from Iran, Iraq, UAE, Jordan, Germany, Switzerland, Algeria, Nigeria and Uruguay, among others.
With the notion that security is key at such a high-level gathering, the World Energy Congress has appointed The Soufan Group to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the extensive security preparations underway for the event.
Murat Mercan, Chair of the Organising Committee for the 2016 World Energy Congress said: “Khalid Al-Falih’s attendance once again underlines the calibre of our 260 confirmed speakers - it is a “who’s who” of the entire energy sector. The event will be a crucial gathering to set the agenda for the energy landscape for years to come. We are also delighted to appoint The Soufan Group with their outstanding expertise to work for the safety of our delegates, staff and exhibitors.
Ali Soufan, CEO of The Soufan Group noted: “We are honoured to be appointed to undertake an assessment of the security preparations underway for the 2016 World Energy Congress. One of the most prestigious events in the energy calendar, it is a truly market-leading event attracting the world’s most influential industry leaders. We will work tirelessly with the organisers to ensure that best safety standards and practices are in place during the Congress.”
