Dr. Yergin during the organization’s 21st Annual Private VIP
Board of Advisors Dinner at The Emirates Palace during the ADIPEC energy
conference in Abu Dhabi.

In presenting the award, the Bilateral Chamber’s Chairman of the Board,
David L. Phillips noted, “It is my pleasure to bestow this honor unto
Dan in recognition of his lifelong contribution to the global energy
industry and his extraordinary accomplishments over a distinguished
career as a highly respected authority, if not ‘The Authority,’ on
energy, international politics and economics.”

“I am extremely honored to be presented with this distinguished award by
Mr. Phillips and the Bilateral U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce,” Dr.
Yergin said. “Since its founding more than two decades ago, the
Bilateral Chamber has provided invaluable service as a facilitator of
knowledge, cooperation and understanding across important industries and
regions and I am most grateful for this honor.”

conservationists, lawmakers, generals, spies, tech geeks, thriller
writers,” among many others. Bill Gates summed up his review saying,
