The oil and gas sector is still the main contributor to the national economy of the Gulf region and this conference will discuss the new challenges and opportunities in this vital sector. We are committed to the Kingdom’s Economic Vision 2030 and the conference will serve as the perfect platform for promoting our vision to provide the major investments in the country. Our support of the event reinforces our commitment to further develop the Middle East oil and gas industry.”


Dr. Fereidun Fesharaki, Chairman of FGE, a leading oil industry consultancy advisors on the Middle East and Asia said, “MPGC 2020 brings to the industry a mix of insightful comments about the Global Oil and Gas Markets together with key issues impacting the Middle East industry from geopolitics to crude oil production, refining and petrochemicals to the key financial issues such as Aramco IPO. Yet again MPGC 2020 reiterates the commitment of the organizers to deliver the highest quality of content at the conference”.

  • Carlos mendy :   I was very confused when my wife that I married 11 years ago told me she needed a divorce simply because she fell in love with a guy she met in the bank, she took all her belongings and left my house even when I pleaded with her not to go but she insisted and left. It wasn’t easy at all for me because I was in pain and couldn’t go to work or even eat, i did a lot of research on the internet when I came across some beautiful testimony people shared about Dr. Ken so I quickly contacted him and told him my story, I never knew Dr. Ken could be so nice, he told me that my wife will come back to me within 4 days and everything happened just as he said and then I concluded that I have found a God on Earth and I will continue to testify about him till Christ comes. Here is Dr. Ken contact details Email address;  drkenlovespell@gmail.com Whatsapp number; +1(201)992 1012
