The Ministry of Energy, United Arab Emirates in partnership with Total E&P UAE, has presented the Ministry of Education with copies of a book on the geological evolution of the UAE.

The move coincides with UAE’s Year of Reading and comes in the context of the Ministry of Energy’s contribution to spreading awareness of mineral wealth and building a generation of future scientists who are cognisant of their nation’s history, civilisation and rich resources.

Suhail Mohammed Al Mazrouei, the Minister of Energy, said that the ministry is keen on communication and coordination with future generations through lectures, workshops and enrichment of curricula with topics related to energy, oil and gas. This, noted the Minister, serves to make students better prepared to engage in work and career development to continue UAE’s efforts in building a green economy based on innovation, science and knowledge.

Hatem Nuseibeh, President of Total Exploration and Production UAE and Total Group’s Representative in the UAE, said that Total E&P UAE is proud to be part of UAE’s initiative to build a generation of future scientists. Books entitled ‘Geological Evolution of the United Arab Emirates’ and ‘Abu Dhabi, a Nature Reserve’, will promote innovation, technology and the exchange of knowledge in all areas.

The book on UAE’s geological evolution is a summary of more than a decade of extensive geological and geophysical studies of UAE territories. It is noteworthy that the book addresses the needs of university students, academia, professional geologists and all individuals concerned with the natural world. The book features more than a hundred coloured illustrations on dynamic geological evolution.
