EI Middle East

Welcome to EI Middle East

To reflect the importance of the energy sector in the Middle East, the EI has established EI Middle East, based in Dubai/Abu Dhabi, to provide members in the region with a local hub of activity around events and meetings, as well as access to all the benefits of EI membership.

To support an active branch we have an office in Dubai Knowledge Village, please contact any of the committee if you would like to have an active role in the branch whether you live in the region or regularly visit.  An active committee of several members is now established and you can find out more about their acitvities including meetings and events on these pages.
