The Middle East oil and gas industry is poised for significant growth with large-scale investments having fueled a spike in oil and gas projects, with 615 projects expected between 2021 and 2025, projects including 143 midstream projects, 77 upstream projects, 83 refinery projects, and 312 petrochemical projects cementing its status as a global hub for major oil and gas initiatives including the landmark commitments of the region towards sustainability with the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 initiative, and the Net Zero target for 2060 set by both Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. As the industry witnesses a surge in projects, now more than ever companies need to address to crucial challenges such as production bottlenecks, system silos, high OPEX, market volatility, complex processes, environmental footprint, and skill-gaps to seize market opportunities and stay ahead of the competition. The Middle East Data Driven Oil and Gas Forum serves as a pivotal platform underling the significance of data innovation across upstream, midstream, and downstream processes in surmounting prevalent challenges. The forum aims to illuminate how organizations, through the adoption of data-driven strategies, can attain operational excellence, streamline processes, amplify output and return on investment, establish robust compliance frameworks, and effectively meet sustainability objectives.


The Middle East oil & gas market is expected to reach US$ 1,405.7 billion by 2030, with an annual growth rate of more than 3.9% (Rationalstat).

The big data market in the oil and gas sector size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22.47% between 2022 and 2027. The market size is forecast to increase by USD 14,192.72 million (TechNavio).

With the Middle East expected to grow exponentially, the global oil and gas analytics market size is expected to surpass around USD 52.46 billion by 2032 from USD 6.92 billion and it is growing at a CAGR of 22.45% from 2023 to 2032.

The most significant challenge 31% of organizations in the Middle East face is a lack of data and measurement as a barrier to effective implementation of an ESG strategy (PWC).
