A host of international experts will be expected to gather in Abu Dhabi to debate the latest technologies used in converting sour gas into sweet gas at the upcoming Sour Gas and Advanced Technology (SOGAT) exhibition and conference
The free-to-attend event, which will run from 23-27 March 2014 at Beach Rotana - Abu Dhabi, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
Sour gas has been in growing demand across the UAE and wider Gulf region, supporting ongoing infrastructure, power and petrochemical requirements.
This year's SOGAT will include a number of workshops on the lessons learned from sulphur plant operations, amine treatment, process optimisation, gas compression, the sulphur supply chain and the key aspects of contamination removal, with the latter workshop forming one of the key themes of the event.
The event's organiser has said that this year's event will feature new exhibitors from China, who will complement major international process separation companies. Other new exhibitors will showcase their expertise with process simulation tools for designing complicated refineries and gas processing plants.
Accompanying the exhibition will be the SOGAT conference, which will be opened by Khalid Sahouh, senior vice-president of ADCO. Close to 30 papers covering a range of sour oil and gas technology innovations and developments will be presented at the conference, including a paper on from the Qatari Ministry of Energy and Industry who will focus on its carbon capture plans and its Dukhan Jaleha EOR Pilot project.
