First published in 2007, the WOO provides in-depth review and analysis of the global oil industry and offers a thorough assessment of various scenarios in the medium- and long-term development of the oil industry. The publication is an important reference, providing insights into the upstream and downstream, supply and demand, costs, investments, the potential impact of policies and the role of sustainable development. It also provides in-depth, expert analysis of many of the various challenges, as well as opportunities, facing the global oil industry.
OPEC’s Secretary General, HE Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, senior members of management and the report’s main authors will be available after the presentation of the publication to answer questions.
This year marks the WOO’s tenth edition, a significant milestone for OPEC’s flagship publication. It is also the first year that the launch of the WOO takes place in an OPEC Member Country.
ADIPEC 2016, under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and with the theme ‘Strategies for the New Energy Landscape’, will be one of the largest oil and gas events in the world.
