LONDON, August 9, 2017

Senior executives and technical experts from the Caspian oil and gas industry are confirmed to speak at the region’s leading technical conference this autumn.

The SPE Annual Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition (CTCE), now in its fourth year, will return to Baku, Azerbaijan on November 1 to 3.
 
Oil and gas industry professionals from IOCs, NOCs, government representatives, service companies, academia and others are expected to attend from Azerbaijan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Europe, Asia and the US and contribute to the event, which will be hosted by Socar.
 
Under the theme ‘Chasing the Margins’, the conference will include three panel sessions that will explore the issues currently faced by the E&P industry in Azerbaijan and the broader Caspian region – and ways to resolve them.
 
Panel session subjects to be covered include: Modernisation, how to accelerate the leverage and take-up of new technologies; Localisation, developing higher education and the oil and gas supply chain in the region; and Collaboration, innovative solutions on how the industry stakeholders can maximise their asset value.

Alongside the keynote sessions will be a technical programme composed of 12 technical sessions. The common theme to all these research-based presentations will be how cutting edge tools, technology and techniques are being applied in the Caspian in response to current cost pressures.
 
Topics for the technical programme will include:
•   Well Integrity Management

Darcy Spady, incoming 2018 SPE president, commented: "SPE's prestigious CTCE event is significant for the Caspian oil and gas industry. The fourth annual edition taking place in Baku provides a unique opportunity for local and international oil and gas professionals to come together and share their challenges and experiences, enhance technical knowledge, build business networks, and help to progress understanding of new technologies and developments in the industry.
