Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) secretary-general Yury Sentyurin and Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) secretary-general Mohamed Sanusi Barkindo met on Wednesday, on the sidelines of the 9th IEA-IEF-Opec Symposium on Energy Outlooks, held at the International Energy Forum secretariat.
“The two senior officials recognised the numerous areas of mutual interest to both organisations, including the fact that they have many member countries in common. They emphasised their desire to continue working closely together, both at a high-level, as well as on a technical level,” Doha-based GECF said in a statement on Thursday.
Regarding co-operation on the technical front, the two organisations expressed their satisfaction with the information exchange on issues pertaining to data collection, oil and gas modelling, research in topical areas, as well as sharing perspectives on global economic and energy outlooks, it said. Both organisations decided to continue their co-operation through regular technical meetings, workshops and selected joint research, the statement added.
