OGWAThe oil and gas sector remains optimistic about the prospects and the sector’s continuous growth and what these opportunities represent for oil and gas companies in the region

On Monday, executives from biggest exhibitions and conferences organiser Omanexpo, along with a distinguished panel from the oil and gas sector, addressed the media in a press conference for its 11th edition of Oil & Gas West Asia (OGWA) Exhibition and Conference, to be held at the Grand Hyatt Muscat Hotel from 26 – 28 March 2018.

The panel included major industry individuals such as Dr Sultan Al-Shidhani, petroleum engineering manager of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and OGWA-SPE technical committee chairman, Michelle Boyd, director of Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, Musallam Al Mandhari, CEO of Oman Society for Petroleum Services (OPAL) and many others.

Since its launch in 1998, the OGWA-SPE Exhibition and Conference has grown and known to become one of the most important and recognised oil and gas events in the region. In Oman, the event plays a major role to boost government initiatives to open paths to viable alternatives to the current extraction and explorations techniques, provide platform to major projects and potential business and investment opportunities.

The SPE EOR Conference, held alongside the OGWA exhibition, will feature a keynote panel session and an executive plenary session where distinguished industry leaders are set to share their views of the industry’s successes and progress. Technical sessions will cover the latest advances in chemical EOR, thermal EOR, miscible gas injection EOR and low salinity water flooding and much more.

Over the years, this event has become a hub for professionals from around the globe to meet in one place to share their experiences and discuss new technologies and advances in EOR.

This year, the exhibition will be held for the first time at the new Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre and will showcase more than 300 companies representing 19 countries. Highlighting the exhibition are six country pavilions (China, Iran, Italy, India, Egypt and the SPE Technology Pavilion), and the ICV Riyada Pavilion, where it will present about 130 companies who will showcase their profiles at the Riyada JSRS e-marketplace and 10 stands at the exhibition.
