Ideas to solve global oil and gas challenges meet funding at RDPETRO 2018

RDPETRO NOCResearch and Development Petroleum Conference and Exhibition (RDPETRO), one of the largest oil and gas conferences in the world fully dedicated to research and development, will be held in Abu Dhabi from 13-14 May 2018

The event fosters closer collaboration across industries and enables leading oil and gas companies to source and invest in innovative solutions and new technologies that unlock and optimise oil and gas resources.

A primary focus of the event will be how, across the value chain, the oil and gas industry can unlock value and optimise performance through applications of new advanced digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, the Internet of Things, Big Data and data visualisation.

The RDPETRO 2018 will host multimillion dollar development funding awards for the most innovative projects and new ideas submitted. Project awards will be funded by the strategic partners supporting the event including major oil and gas corporations like the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) Total, Chinese National Petroleum Company (CNPC), Japan Oil, Gas and Metal National Corporation (JOGMEC), Korea National Oil Corporation (KNOC) and Petronas.

RDPETRO Qasem Al Kayoumi, chairman of Chairman and head of ADNOC’s Technical Centre, said, “RDPETRO connects leading national and international oil companies, and major service companies, with innovators and researchers from diverse high-tech sectors and universities, who are invited to showcase their innovations and source funding that helps develop solutions to the challenges of our energy hungry world.”

The RDPETRO event, previously known as ADRAC, has been expanded in 2018 to reach a fully global audience and has increased its scope to discover digital innovations and ideas from outside the sector that have value-add application to the oil and gas industry. The drive is for oil and gas to gain powerful new ways of tackling big global industry challenges, by adopting new technologies and processes from sectors such as aerospace, medical, IT and graphics.
