Decarbonising the Downstream Industry

Welcome to ESF MENA 2023 – Middle East Energy & Sustainability Forum

Global energy dynamics and the growing momentum for the energy transition is putting the Middle East region, traditionally heavily reliant on hydrocarbons, under increased pressure. There are many opportunities for the region to thrive in the era of the energy transition with its natural geology and abundance of low cost and low carbon resources. Today success is no longer just measured on safe and profitable operations, but also the delivery of energy and operational efficiency whilst demonstrating a commitment to ESG and maximising in-country value and circularity.

As the region looks to diversify, ESF MENA will support the collaborations, discussions, and development of a sustainable energy future in which the Middle East’s downstream industry continues to play a leading role.

Through interactive panel discussions, presentations, and case studies, ESF MENA will:

  • Present the latest technologies being deployed to decarbonise operations, carbon base line assets, and conserve energy
  • Discuss the most opportune pathways for the region in its journey to net zero
  • Explore routes to increased flexibility and (product slate) diversification to accommodate bio-based and hydrogen generated feedstocks
  • Explore the value proposition and commercialisation status of the latest plastics conversion technologies and the tangible steps needed for large scale implementation
  • Prepare the industry for tomorrow through market outlooks, future fuel predictions and transition preparation
  • Discuss the latest projects and technologies championing the production of low and zero carbon hydrogen essential for the deep decarbonisation of the downstream industry
  • Position the industry to take the leading role in a net zero future through market outlooks, future fuel predictions and transition preparation
