Royal Dutch Shell conducts global meeting in Oman

Sun, 04 December 2011

By A Staff Reporter – MUSCAT — Royal Dutch Shell’s Chief Executive, Peter Voser, has hosted 190 of his most senior management colleagues, at the luxury Shangri-La Hotel in Muscat.

The executives gathered with government dignitaries and business luminaries from around the world to discuss Shell’s global strategy and to celebrate a year of achievements.

The annual meeting, known as the 2011 Senior Executive Forum and usually held in Europe or North America, lasted for three days last month.

Shell is intent on becoming the world’s most competitive and innovative energy company and the event focused on driving greater competitiveness, technological innovation and leadership.

In the past year, Shell has finished building the world’s largest GTL plant, Pearl, in Qatar. Shell has also announced plans to build the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas plant (FLNG) off Australia’s north-west coast.

Shell is a joint venture partner with PDO (34 per cent), Oman LNG (30 per cent) and Shell Oman Marketing Company (49 per cent). Oman was chosen as the location for this year’s gathering to signal Shell’s commitment to the country as well as the company’s appreciation for the longstanding working relationship between the two parties.

Speaking to delegates at the opening ceremony, Peter Voser, Shell’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are proud of our relationship with Oman, its leadership and the Omani people. We are especially proud of the development of our joint ventures, which have contributed to the growth of the Omani economy and the development of this great nation.”

Peter Voser and other Shell executives met with a wide range of senior Omani guests from Government, businesses and NGOs. There was much lively discussion then and YB Senator Dato’ Sri Idris Jala, Minister in the Malaysian Prime Minister’s Office and Chief Executive Officer, PEMANDU, spoke about “enhancing the role that governments and private enterprise play in developing countries, in contributing to the growth and well being of the economy, in a rapidly evolving world”
