Highlights from the 5th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit

CWC would like to thank everyone who attended the 5th Kuwait Oil and Gas Summit under the patronage of His Excellency, Bakheet Al-Rashidi, Minister of Oil of Kuwait. It has been such an exciting event where we had real interaction between the government and the industry decision makers around the major theme ‘New Energy Era: Transformation, Diversification and Integration’. It was such a great pleasure to see and hear from the Minister of Oman and the Secretary General of OPEC.

The 5th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit has become a truly regional event. Here are some highlights from the Summit:

• What has really stood out is that Kuwait is playing an important role in the region 
Collaboration and partnerships has been highlighted as a key element in the oil and gas industry whether in the country or company level
• The oil sector is now entering into a new era which was referred to as industry 4.0. Innovative digital technologies are indeed transforming the entire value chain and bringing with it new levels of efficiency, optimisation and consistently driving the cost base down
• There is a feeling that uncertainty is now a normal feature of this industry and Kuwait has been praised to be embracing this uncertainty with a very positive approach
• It was fantastic to hear an update on all the dynamic projects that are being developed along the whole value chain which are ensuring that Kuwait fulfil this 2030 vision and KPC its 2040 strategy
