Arab Petroleum Investments Corp (Apicorp) has announced plans to invest nearly $1bn in energy projects during 2019 in a move that is set to increase its assets with oil prices faltering, Arabian Business reports.

It is anticipated that new investments will see the portfolio diversified into Libya, Morocco, Egypt, Iraq and the US, according to chief executive officer, Ahmed Ali Attiga.

In an interview in Abu Dhabi, Attiga commented: “These projections will be maintained for the region in 2019. The price of oil is rebounding, and I think it will settle in a range that is conducive to making the bulk of the investments happen. I hope my success will be measured by how much we can grow, particularly in the areas where we are seeing the transformation of the energy sector in this region: renewables, energy efficiency, technology and anything related to it,” added Attiga.
