Sergey Brilev to Host TNF 2020
The Global Energy Association will become a partner of the 11th Tyumen Oil and Gas Forum (TNF), while Dr Sergey Brilev, the Association’s President, Deputy CEO of Russia TV channel for special informational projects, and the host of “Vesti v Subbotu” programme will moderate the TNF 2020 plenary meeting.
The Forum will take place in the city of Tyumen on September 22-24. The topic of the plenary meeting is “Future is Now: New Opportunities for the Industry”. It unites all the Forum’s events into a single concept. Today, in the course of global decarbonisation it is essential for Russia’s fuel and energy complex to identify a new development pattern. “‘What should be the new standards of industry?’, ‘When will we fully abandon traditional energy sources?’, ‘What will be the future fuel?’” – all those essential questions of the Forum are closely connected to the agenda of the Global Energy Association.
“Russia is a great energy nation and one of the oil & gas leaders. Why can’t we make a power play here as well? Moreover, it will require much energy. Having Russia’s largest supplies of oil and natural gas, Tyumen is a great place to discuss the future of energy including the balance between traditional and renewable energy sources,” said Dr Brilev.
The Global Energy Association is a non-governmental organisation that originated in 2002 to support energy research and innovations, as well as promote energy cooperation. Members of the Association are PJSC Gazprom, PJSC Surgutneftegaz, and PJSC FGC UES. The Association helps in forming the future energy by supporting cutting-edge scientific and technical developments and stimulating international energy cooperation for all. Since 2003, the Association annually presents the Global Energy Prize, an international prize in the sphere of energy. For 17 years, 39 scientists became its laureates representing 13 countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Iceland, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, and USA. Last year’s prize fund equaled 39 million RUB.
