Suhail Al Mazroui, for bilateral ministerial talks on March 25.

  • Equatorial Guinea's Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons met with the UAE Minister of Energy and Industry in Abu Dhabi on March 25
  • The ministers discussed continuing OPEC and non-OPEC collaboration and cross border investment between Equatorial Guinea and the UAE.

H.E. Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima said: “Equatorial Guinea is making every effort to create stronger ties between us and our OPEC partners, and other oil producers in the Middle East and Africa. It's important that we continue the remarkable collaborative work that we initiated in 2017 with OPEC and non OPEC countries to stabilize the market. Cross border investments between the UAE and African nations are an important part of this. I enjoyed productive discussions with His Excellency the Minister and with the leadership of Mubadala Petroleum.”
