The other speakers included Arkady Dvorkovich, Deputy Prime Minister for Energy of the Russian Federation; Dr Renato Bertani, President of the World Petroleum Council, and Vladimir Evtushenkov, Chair of the WPC Russian National Committee.

In addition, Dr Al Sada also attended the opening plenary and the inauguration of the exhibition, which was held earlier yesterday at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Centre.

Measuring a total of 450 square meters in area, the QP pavilion showcases the operations of QP and its subsidiaries and joint ventures, and it also highlights the corporation's 40th anniversary this year.

Officials from RasGas, Oryx GTL and Qatar Shell will be presenting papers during the event, and there will also be a total of eight poster presentations from QP, Qatargas, RasGas, and Oryx GTL.

Held under the theme "Responsibly Energising a Growing World," the 21st WPC has attracted the participation of thousands of delegates from all over the world as well as over 600 exhibiting companies from up to 50 countries worldwide.
