Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies, and gentlemen,

I stand before you deeply honored to receive this prestigious award on behalf of the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry at the 7th GECF Summit. This recognition underscores the dedication and excellence of our institute, which has been at the forefront of oil and gas research for over six decades, shaping the trajectory of our industry through groundbreaking science and technology.

As we navigate the complex landscape of sustainable development and combat the climate change, technological innovation emerges as our beacon of hope. It is through advancements in science and the responsible deployment and transfer of technology that we can reconcile these seemingly disparate goals. I am proud to affirm that this shared vision unites both the GECF and RIPI in our pursuit of a sustainable future.

Our research endeavors have underscored the pivotal role of natural gas in facilitating an inclusive energy transition. As a vital resource, natural gas holds the key to providing affordable, reliable, and environmentally sustainable energy for generations to come. Yet, realizing this potential requires unwavering commitment to technological progress and collaboration among GECF nations. In RIPI, we stand ready to shoulder our responsibility in this endeavor.

Furthermore, I am delighted to witness the official inauguration of the Gas Research Institute's headquarters here in Algeria. As president of RIPI, I extend our full support and readiness to contribute to the future endeavors of GRI. I warmly extend an invitation to GRI officials to visit RIPI at their earliest convenience, fostering a network of collaboration that will undoubtedly yield benefits for all member states.

In closing, I extend my heartfelt gratitude for this esteemed recognition. It serves as a testament to the collective efforts of our institute and reaffirms our unwavering commitment to excellence in advancing the frontiers of science and technology in service of humanity.
