Navigating the Global Energy Transition: A Conversation with Kuwait Petroleum CEO Sh. Nawaf Al-Sabah

November 6, 2023 • 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST

The global energy transition will have profound effects on the global economy, and producers are especially concerned with how they can maintain market stability during a period of dynamic consumption patterns. The economic—and arguably, social—effects of the transition will be especially acute in the Middle East, where hydrocarbons are at the core of many government budgets. At the same time, energy companies have a role to play in decarbonization, and national oil companies have opportunities to be much more aggressive in this process.

Please join the CSIS Middle East Program and Energy, Security, and Climate Change Program for a conversation with Shaikh Nawaf S. Al-Sabah, deputy chairman and chief executive officer of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, for a discussion on the energy transition and decarbonization efforts throughout the region.  The discussion will be moderated by Jon B. Alterman and Kevin Book.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
