One of the world’s foremost technical conferences for the energy industry - the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) – will be held in Dubai.
The event, to be held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from December 4 to 6, will combine the strengths of the world’s four largest representative bodies of exploration and production professionals – The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).

“This year’s event - subtitled ‘A Changing World: Interdependence, Innovation and Implementation’ - confronts head-on the major strategic challenges facing our industry. IPTC will provide an important platform for knowledge exchange and skills development, supporting our efforts and investments in developing people and technology across the region,” said vice-president, Baker Hughes, Business Development - Middle East & Asia Pacific, Adham Alkady.
The conference will examine critical issues including exploration, environmental issues and solutions to the challenge of energy constraints.
Executive committee co-chairpersons, Farouk Al Zanki, chairman and managing director, Kuwait Oil Co, and Tony Hayward, group CEO, BP, will speak at the event.
The opening session of IPTC will include addresses from Al Zanki and Hayward, as well as dignitaries from the UAE, Kuwait and Oman.
