29th October 2015

This Webinar, for British energy companies, was organised by the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), on 26th October 2015, to provide information about opportunities in the energy sector in the UAE and how to setup an energy business here. It also introduces some of the key trade associations that could be useful, such as The Energy Industries Council (EIC) and Scottish Development International (SDI). The Webinar lasts for just over thirty minutes and finishes with a Q&A session.

The Purpose of the UKTI's Energy Webinar

To provide UK companies planning to attend and/or exhibit at ADIPEC 2015 in Abu Dhabi with an insight into doing business in the UAE, with a particular focus on the complexities involved in setting up in the energy sector, such as obtaining approval from the Supreme Petroleum Council, registering with ADNOC and organising CICPA registration for obtaining CICPA security passes.
