The mobile application will be officially presented at a press conference where both OPEC and the UAE Ministry of Energy are scheduled to give remarks about the Smart App's development, which was achieved through a joint IT project team from both organizations.

After the remarks, a demonstration of the Smart App will be provided, which will be followed by a question and answer session.

At the event, attendees will be able to obtain the printed edition of the ASB as well as the pocket and USB versions.

The ASB Smart App was developed to provide increased access to the publication's important energy data, which will now be available for download on iOS and Android mobile devices.

Using the Smart App's search function, academics, researchers, journalists, policy­makers and analysts will be able to instantaneously download charts and tables to visualize the latest trends occurring in the energy markets.

Now in its 51st edition, the primary goal of the ASB is to make reliable data on the global oil and gas industry easily available to industry stakeholders and the public at large. The publication has become a valued and trusted source among energy players around the world while promoting data sharing and transparency throughout the industry.
