ABU DHABI, 14th January, 2023 (WAM) — Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, has stressed the importance of accelerating new investments to meet rising energy demand, as many OPEC+ members cut output.

Geopolitical factors in the region and around the world shape the global energy landscape, he added, expressing his hope for more stable energy markets by 2023, with lower gas prices and volatility.
“Price changes have a major impact on the economies of many countries and since the demand for natural gas is so high, we want to launch new projects in this area,” the minister added.
