The world still needs fossil fuel to secure energy supplies, Minister of Oil and Environment, Special Envoy for Climate Affairs, Dr Mohammed bin Mubarak Bin Daina, said.
He emphasised that this is considered an encouraging factor for oil companies to pump more oil investments and implement new projects, including exploration, development, production, gas, refining and petrochemicals.
Dr Bin Daina delivered a speech as he opened yesterday the 6th Middle East Maintenance & Reliability Conference (MAINTCON 2022). The biennial conference is being organised under the theme “Industry 4.0 – New Era in Maintenance & Reliability”.
It has been held in the Kingdom of Bahrain since 2010. More than 1,500 professionals, engineers and specialists in maintenance, reliability and asset management from around the world are taking part in the event.
The Minister welcomed the participating delegations as he pointed out the importance of applying comprehensive maintenance in all oil projects that need to establish a culture of maintenance in its various stages: preventive, predictive, and proactive.
He added that the conference this year came to meet the technological developments and digital transformation that are taking place in the areas of maintenance, reliability and asset management.
Dr Bin Daina pointed out that the event will be an ideal platform that brings together international and regional professionals, researchers, service providers and users to explore the latest findings in the world of digitisation and benefit from the expertise and information that will enrich participation in this unique professional event.
