Shaikh Nasser highlighted the importance of Bahrain accords on the national energy strategy, its pivotal role in the local sector’s growth and building a sustainable future free of carbon emissions.

He outlined Bahrain’s achievements in developing the oil and gas sector, and the importance of exploring more opportunities that ensure the continuity of the sector’s development and growth through the application of the latest technologies and qualitative innovations that would boost the efficiency of infrastructure and protect the environment.

He also stressed the kingdom’s keenness to provide sustainable and safe energy supplies in line with the sustainability goals and the Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030.
