The 7th edition of the Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) will bring together over 30 global chief executives in the energy industry on 14th November, to discuss key issues affecting the energy landscape and the outcomes of the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). 

The invitation-only forum will offer a high-level platform for chief executives to share their views on a wide range of issues, including mitigating a supply crunch and the energy transition.

The high-level participation in the Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable strengthens the emirate’s leadership role in shaping the global energy dialogue. The forum will be held on the sideline of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2021 and follows the recent announcement that Abu Dhabi will host COP28 in 2023.

“Coming immediately after the COP26 conference in Glasgow, the Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable provides a timely opportunity for global energy leaders to convene and exchange views on how our industry can effectively contribute to addressing the outcomes of COP26. Our discussions will focus on how through partnership and collaborative working, we can continue to responsibly provide the world’s energy needs and drive investments in carbon-efficient fuels to ensure global energy security and economic prosperity as we embrace the energy transition.”

The sessions will be attended by chief executives from major global oil companies, including Saudi Aramco, BP, TotalEnergies, Eni and ExxonMobil, among others. They will be moderated by economist Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman of IHS Markit and author of The New Map.

Commenting on the forum, Mr. Yergin said, “The Abu Dhabi CEO Roundtable will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the agenda coming out of Glasgow for net-zero and low carbon and the practical questions that need to be addressed to move it forward. It will also bring together perspectives from around the world on the major technological options for advancing the agenda, the state of the technologies, and the likely time frames for bringing them forward.”
