The 21st edition of the MEOS 2019 is taking place at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre and will run until 21 March 2019.

Attracting thousands of visitors, the show hosts more than 200 exhibitors from 25 countries. The showcase features important stakeholders, major players, suppliers and service providers in the oil and gas sector providing a spatial environment for exploring new technologies, partnerships and business opportunities.

Waleed Al-Mulhim, MEOS 2019 co-chairman and chief petroleum engineer at Saudi Aramco, said, “MEOS represents a strategic industrial event in the Middle Eastern region, focusing on innovation, opportunities, and breakthroughs, addressed by senior industry leaders.”

“It provides an opportunity looking beyond the industry; focusing on collaboration with business, educational institutions, governments and society. We need joint development of new technologies that will increase discovery and recovery, reduce cost, enhance safety and protect the environment,” he continued.

MEOS 2019 is co-hosted by UBM AEM and the world’s largest individual member organisation serving professionals worldwide in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry, the SPE. The event is supported by NOGA and a committee of NOCs, IOCs, academia and service providers co-chaired by Saudi Aramco and Petroleum Development Oman in 2019.

In testing times for the energy sector, Waleed Al-Mulhim said MEOS is a bright spot for the region and industry alike.

The MEOS 2019 theme ‘Resilience through Talent and Technology Transformation’ focuses on the challenges that the oil and gas industry faces in meeting world energy demand efficiently, safely and responsibly in a fluctuating market and the many emerging solutions available to those operating in this sector.

On 19 March 2019 at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre, the associated 12,000 sq m exhibition of industrial products and services was opened in a separate ceremony.
