Cairo, February 2024 – ExxonMobil Egypt participated for the seventh consecutive year in the Egypt Energy Show “EGYPES 2024” with the aim of supporting the transformation frameworks in the regional energy landscape through constructive discussions on worldwide energy dynamics, the latest industry trends, regional progress, and collective actions to achieving net-zero emissions.

The event served as the epicenter for global energy dialogue in Africa and the Mediterranean, providing a spectrum of enrichment from practical, scientific and innovative R&D to project management across the entire oil, gas, and broader energy supply and value chains. Scheduled this year from February 19th to the 21st at the Egypt International Exhibition Center, the exhibition is themed around “Driving Energy Transition, Security and Decarbonization”. ExxonMobil’s participation featured a group of ExxonMobil officials in the research and exploration field who took part in several sessions and workshops during the conference. Among the participants was John Ardill, Vice President of ExxonMobil Global Exploration, in the session focusing on “The energy trilemma and the continued importance of fossil fuels” in the strategic conference. This session delved into the necessity of ongoing access to funding to facilitate the introduction of low-carbon oil and gas into the market swiftly, alongside the rapid deployment of low-carbon technologies and multifaceted solutions to enhance existing critical legacy assets and infrastructure. This approach ensures the secure and safe delivery of all energy sources vital for the future.

On this occasion, Amr Abou Eita – ExxonMobil Egypt’s Chairman and Managing Director stated: “We are proud to participate and sponsor EGYPES 2024 for the seventh time, which represents the most prominent event in the energy sector in the region. Our commitment to innovation and excellence aligns with the objectives of the exhibition serving as a platform for industry leaders to meet with the aim of enhancing cooperation and presenting the latest developments shaping the future of the sector. ExxonMobil (Upstream) Limited has expanded its research and exploration activities in the Egyptian regional waters of the Mediterranean Sea.”

He added, “At ExxonMobil Egypt, we recognize the significant impact EGYPES 2024 offers to Egyptian youth interested in the energy field. We take pride in our role as the Headline Sponsor of the Young Professionals program, which involved more than 500 university and high school students participating in several fruitful discussions and talks focused on energy, technology, and youth leadership development. Through this year’s edition, we look forward to knowledge exchange and shaping new paths towards a more sustainable energy future.”

Furthermore, several ExxonMobil Egypt officials participated in the technical committees responsible for reviewing and selecting the research papers presented during the conference. Additionally, a group of the company’s young engineers and experts shared their experiences and insights in a series of dialogues called “Youth Talks,” aimed at raising awareness among school students about the energy sector and its importance.

In addition to its participation in the conference, ExxonMobil Egypt (Upstream) Limited organized a specialized technical workshop on “The Hunt for Hydrocarbons ” during the event. The workshop served as a knowledge-sharing platform, benefiting approximately 40 university students majoring in geology. It featured presentations by three global experts from ExxonMobil in the research and exploration field, discussing the latest hydrocarbon exploration techniques. This provided participants with an exceptional experience by learning and discussing the advanced technologies that drive our success in this dynamic field, in line with ExxonMobil’s strategy regarding knowledge transfer to young talents, aiming to achieve excellence in the entire sector.

It is worth mentioning that through its sponsorship of the Young Professionals program, the company organized field visits to its manufacturing plant in the Tenth of Ramadan City for a number of university students.
