Oil & Gas Middle East Power 50 2016

Oil & Gas Middle East Power 50 2016

Oil & Gas Middle East presents its annual list of the upstream sector's most influential figures

Welcome to the annual Oil & Gas Middle East Power 50, where we run the rule over the GCC’s most influential upstream energy figures.

This year’s top 10 includes a number of familiar faces, most (if not all) of whom were closely involved in the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) decision in late 2014 to defend market share, shunning calls to cut output [although that decision might be revised this month when OPEC members meet Russia this month in Doha to make a call on an output freeze deal].

On a wider level, the list includes high-profile figures from public companies, private firms, organisational bodies and government officials, highlighting the importance of the industry, particularly here in the Middle East.

Let’s get to the list, starting with a worthy number one....
