The energy production in Qatar is mainlybased on the use of natural gas as a fuel to produce electricity and potablewater. Natural gas is sold to power plants at subsidized prices which is lesserthan the world market prices. The production of one kilowatt of electricity orone cubic of potable water from a renewable energy source such as solar energysaves a certain quantity of natural gas, where it can be sold in the globalmarket at higher prices instead of using gas as a fuel in conventional stationsand based on subsidized prices. Qatar can benefit from price difference betweenthe global price and subsidized price. This is in addition to the positiveenvironmental benefits in reducing the emission of harmful gases, led bycarbon, in the light of the fulfillment of economic and environmentaldevelopment requirements along with the vision of Qatar in 2030.

Oil and gas companies in Kuwait are contributing to solar energy generation, by doing so they are not only supporting the Kuwait 2030 vision but they are reducing their consumption of natural resource thus increasing the amount available for export. This session will discuss the plans towards utilisation of renewable energy as a stable source of power in the oil and gas sector.

Session reserved for senior experts from KPC group of companies

10:00 - 10:20 The Moroccan SOLAR PV market assessment and discussing the Moroccan solar plan “NOOR”

Abderrahim Jamrani - Director of Technical Planning Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN)
Developing a minimum power capacity of 2000 MW by 2020 Moroccan SOLAR PV Market assessment. Analyzing the Moroccan electric needs including the typical load curve during winter and summer and assessing the Moroccan meteorological data. Focussing on the comparison of PV LCOE compared to conventional energy generation and the PV capacity that could be integrated in the Moroccan grid. Discussing how PV can be developed in hybrid solutions with CSP technology which should increase the PV capacity that can be deployed.

12:40 - 13:00 Using solar thermal energy for heating injection water, produced oil, and for solar thermal EOR

Sidharth Balakrishna - Senior Manager - Business Transformation Cairn Energy India
Solar energy can be used in multiple ways for oil field applications. There is massive solar thermal potential, given that areas such as the Middle East and Rajasthan in India have some of the highest solar radiations in the world. This includes heating injection water, heating produced oil or using solar thermal energy for generating steam for steam flood applications. This presentation will demonstrate the customized applications needed for oil fields.
