The United Arab Emirates hosted the first-ever Shell Technology Leadership Event (STLE) in Dubai, the company's first technology event to take place in the company's Middle East, Central Asia and Pakistan (MECASTAN) operations region, last week in Dubai.

The two-day event united leading experts from the technology industry to discuss a specific topic: the future of energy supply. The event included a showcase of energy-efficient models and novel methods of applying renewable and alternative-power solutions.

“I am proud that the first Shell Technology Leadership Event is being hosted in the UAE and in this region,” Amr Adel, general manager for Shell MECASTAN, said. “As the world’s leading producer of oil and gas, it is critical that this region takes the lead in developing solutions for the future of energy supply as demand rises. Around the world, people are increasingly relocating to urban areas, which has resulted in a growing need for energy supply. At the Shell Technology Leadership Event, we want to work with industry leaders and innovative minds to develop solutions that will help manage the world’s future energy needs.”

“At Shell, innovation and research and development are core to how we create energy solutions for the future, and we adopt innovative approaches to help deliver more, cleaner energy and find ways to use energy more efficiently,” Mounir Bouaziz, Shell's vice president for commercial/new business development-Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, said. “We want to take forward the region’s vision for the energy industry to a new level, shaping the future through innovation which positively impacts our society, the environment and the energy industry at large.”

“Natural gas offers an affordable, available and environmentally acceptable option to power people’s lives today,” Louis van Eijk, vice president of Pearl GTL Marketing for Shell Qatar, said. “We have spent over 40 years researching technology to convert natural gas-to-liquid into products used for transport fuel, lubricants and the raw materials for chemicals and detergents. Now with the world’s rising demand for more, cleaner energy into the future, we are confident that our innovative GTL technology presented through our product portfolio will help reduce local emissions, thereby contributing to cleaner air and environment.”
