Top petroleum conference in Thailand put off
Kuala Lumpur, November 3, 2011
The International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) organisers have decided to postpone the 2011 IPTC due to the current flooding in Thailand.
The decision was taken in consultation with the host organisation, PTT Exploration and Production Public Company (PTTEP), a statement said.
'While we were extremely reluctant to postpone this important conference, our priority is always the wellbeing and safety of our conference delegates, visitors and exhibitors. Floods that have engulfed a third of the country, and much of suburban Bangkok, are moving closer to the centre of the capital city, and are severely disrupting transport, and affecting electricity, water supplies and the availability of local personnel and materials,' the statement for IPTC said.
After careful consideration, it has been decided that the 5th edition of IPTC will be rescheduled to Febreuary 7-9, 2012, but will still be held at the Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.
We encourage all industry professionals and organisations to actively participate in the newly scheduled event,' it said. - TradeArabia News Service
