Heavy oil producing countries from across the world will gather at Manama, Bahrain, on 25-26 November for the Middle East Heavy Oil Congress (MEHOC) to discuss and debate latest business issues and technologies in the industry
The congress and the exhibition at The Gulf Hotel will be held under the patronage of Abdul Hussain bin Ali Mirza, Bahrain’s minister of energy and chairman of the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA).

On behalf of NOGA, we look forward to welcoming you all to Bahrain this November.”
Organiser dmg Global Energy said that the event provides ‘the perfect platform’ for global and regional experts involved in both the upstream and downstream heavy oil sector to share knowledge, review new technologies and discuss business opportunities and challenges with the leading companies involved in this fast evolving sector.
MEHOC will include topics such as evaluating a holistic approach to extending the reservoir lifecycle, emerging technologies to maximise performance with minimum environmental impact, and technical heavy oil case studies from across the globe.
