ExxonMobil will showcase its Energy Outlook Forum, a venue where subject matter experts will discuss topics vital to energy supply and demand, at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, January 16-19. The Energy Outlook Forum will feature a variety of daily presentations on technologies, energy efficiency and the future of energy use in the ExxonMobil booth.
Kathy Pepper, vice president of Middle East and Russia for ExxonMobil Production Company, said, “The 5th annual World Future Energy Summit has become one of the premier opportunities in the world to discuss ways to meet future energy challenges. Our Energy Outlook Forum is designed to encourage small group discussions in a fact-based and fast-paced venue.” Pepper will participate on the January 18 panel — Technology Leaders in Future Energy: Insights from the Innovators. She will discuss the need to pursue all energy sources to meet the world’s future demand needs, and ExxonMobil’s efforts on technology development in oil and gas production, alternative liquid fuels, and carbon capture.
In addition to serving as a platinum sponsor of the 2012 World Future Energy Summit, ExxonMobil’s booth will feature information on the company’s large-scale energy projects, advances in carbon capture and the company’s proprietary Controlled Freeze Zone technology, as well as the latest edition of the Energy Outlook: A View to 2040.
Morten Mauritzen, President of ExxonMobil affiliates in Abu Dhabi, will represent ExxonMobil on the January 17 panel – Energy Efficiency: The Key to Carbon Reduction – where he will highlight the company’s advances in energy efficiency and findings from the recently released Energy Outlook. Maurtizen points out, “While by 2040 we expect global demand for energy to increase by almost 30 percent, this growth would be more than four times that amount were it not for expected gains in energy efficiency across the world’s economies.”
