2011 IPTC rescheduled due to severe flooding in Thailand

Posted on 02 November 2011

The 2011 International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) has been rescheduled to 7-9 February 2012 because of flooding in Thailand. The conference was originally scheduled for 15-17 November in Bangkok.

The IPTC Board of Directors and host organization PTT Exploration and Production announced their decision to postpone the event on 1 November.

Floods have engulfed a third of the country and are moving closer to the capital city, according to an IPTC news release. The floods have been disrupting transportation and have affected electricity, water supplies and the availability of local personnel.

The fifth IPTC on 7-9 February 2012 will still be held at the Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.

For more information, contact Jenny Chong, IPTC senior event manager (e-mail jchong@iptcnet.org).
