The path to a diversified energy future


GCC countries in transition

This feature looks at some ongoing developments by the region’s states to apply science and AI to upstream oil activities; to diversify power generation away from oil to nuclear, solar and wind  and to encourage a shift away from petrol combustion engines to electric cars and away from heavy fuel oil and diesel to cleaner liquid natural gas in shipping.

Fossil fuels

In the oil and gas sector, investment in research anddevelopment is geared towards increasing exploration success, plus improvingthe efficiency and effectiveness of upstream operations.
