OPEC Announces Its Second Workshop on Energy and Information Technology To Be Held Via Video Conference
September 1, 2020

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has announced that it’s Second Workshop on Energy and Information Technology will be held on September 21 via video conference.

It has been reported that this year’s event sees blockchain technology join the range of energy and tech-related topics to be discussed.

However, it is unlikely that the invited oil industry bigwigs will be discussing the energy consumption characteristics of cryptocurrency.

Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, the Secretary General of OPEC, explained:

“The energy industry, particularly the oil sector, has always been eager to utilize and develop the latest cutting-edge technologies to improve efficiency and effectiveness of its operations, along with its environmental credentials.”

It has been analyzed that blockchain technology has brought supply-chain efficiencies to an ever-growing range of industries. From the traceability of coffee beans to transparency in the recycling sector and efficiency gains in global shipping.

As per the report, the oil industry may be the next in line to have its supply chain logistics reshaped by blockchain.
