Secretary General Message

Esteemed Members and Visitors,

It is my great privilege to welcome you, as the Secretary General of this pioneering association, to benefit from our unique vision of becoming a “common voice” and a “point of Reference” for all Gulf downstream players – industry professionals, corporate executives and legislators – especially in the Refining and related Petrochemical industries.

We realized that each one of us has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which is currently scattered among leading players of the downstream industry in the Gulf countries. Our founding members are the major national oil companies of the Gulf (Saudi Aramco, Kuwait Petroleum International, Bahrain Petroleum Company, Kuwait National Petroleum Company and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company). They have nominated their respective Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to form eight technical committees under the GDA covering all aspects of Downstream industry. These committees are regularly meeting to share knowledge and experience. These committees will expand to include expertise from other ‘full’ members, leading technology providers and Consultants who join the GDA as members.

GDA will offer an innovative platform to create a common pool of best practices, case studies, lessons learned, discussion board, topic-focused training, unique challenges, innovative ideas, focused solutions and access to relevant global resources as well as hosting / leading conferences, seminars and workshops.

Further, every year, our industry loses a significant amount of valuable experience in the form of retirees. The GDA will maintain a virtual network of those retirees whose experience can continue to benefit the industry. This will be our humble contribution towards the Corporate Social Responsibility.

The GDA is poised to become the premier association bringing together Refining and Marketing companies, EPC Contractors, Technology providers, Consultants and other Service Providers, Investors, Governmental agencies, Academia and Job Seekers and is determined to establish itself as a top tier internationally recognized association.
