About 2nd GMF

The current economic situation and uncertainties in energy prices present a great challenge for the GCC decision makers. This is a golden time to lay the ground work for sustainable resource management that will augment the GCC energy goals to be supported and optimized for maximum benefits to the region.

After a successful the First GCC metrology Forum on December 2015 which reflected positively on the GCC metrology sector a collective need for upgrading the metrology infrastructure was seen as eminent. The focus for The Second Gulf Metrology Forum (2nd GMF) this year is to compliment the efforts exerted by the GCC countries in the energy field.

The measurement infrastructure are seen as a necessary step towards implementing the efficient use of resources and reduction of reliance on fossil fuel and at the same time reduction of green gas emissions.

GOIC through its close scrutiny of the industries foresees a bigger role can be played by metrology in the GCC energy sector focusing on the new technologies in the various energy fields.

Why should you attend?

  • Your participation will provide you an opportunity to the following:

  • Gain an insight into the measurements industry in the GCC

  • Learn to assess the potential industrial investment and business opportunities in the field of measurements, calibration and testing

  • Gain knowledge about the needs and requirements of the measurements sector in the GCC

  • Learn ways on how to make your industry more efficient

  • To tap into the growing metrology market in GCC region

Importance of Metrology in the energy sector

  • Introduction of latest measurement techniques and its impact on the energy industry and society.
  • To emphasize the importance of measurements as a way to ensure quality and safety.
  • Review of the national and regional metrological capabilities in the GCC and areas of cooperation between them.
  • The GCC region accounts for nearly 40 percent of global Oil reserves and 24 percent of gas reserves. The abundance of this precious commodity has enabled the countries to capitalize on the revenues with aspiring and sustainable economic development plans. Optimization of the energy system is seen as an additional benefit and an added value to the economy and will supplement the current policies to alleviate the unnecessary waste and reduce expenditure.
  • The impact of Metrology can be witnessed across the various energy sources utilized in the GCC. Sectors which will benefit from Metrology are oil and gas, electricity and desalination, and other renewable energy sources such as solar and wind which are yet to be developed to provide a tangible impact on the total demand outlook.
  • Metrology can add value to the current efforts undertaken by the authorities in the GCC by introducing more efficient measurement systems and tools that serve to conserve energy.
  • The GCC energy demand is forecasted to grow in the coming decades. This has motivated governments and businesses to invest in alternative energy sources. GCC’s energy efficiency still remains low compared to global benchmarks.
  • The GCC states have taken important steps towards introducing innovative research and target-setting for the use of alternative energy sources. Plans are under way in the GCC to commit to specific alternative energy targets with Dubai striving to generate at least 5% of its total energy consumption from renewables by 2030, and Abu Dhabi setting a 7% target for 2020. Other GCC countries have taken similar steps to commit to renewable energy.
  • The GCC Power Sector is rapidly growing, and will add 36 GW of generation capacity over the coming period.
  • The gradual increase in the hydrocarbon output in addition to the growing numbers of industries has led to an increase in the emission levels in the GCC nations making at as one of the highest emission rate per capita CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) .
