International Petroleum Technology Conference in Qatar

Posted on 07 April 2009

“The conference programme will focus on the dissemination of new and current technology, best practices and multidisciplinary activities designed to emphasise the importance of the value chain and the maximisation of asset value, said Olivier Dubrule, director of Total Research Centre – Qatar (TRC-Q) and co-chairman for the IPTC Conference Programme. 

“The technical committee from the sponsoring societies will rate and select the best papers submitted, taking into consideration the quality of the technical information and the regional diversity of the content.

IADC has endoresed the IPTC. It is sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), the Gas Processors Association (GPA), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

Returning to the Middle East from the 2008 event held in Kuala Lumpur, the IPTC has now been established as a biennial event and will be held in alternative years between the Middle East and Asia. 

IPTC will take place at the Sheraton Doha Resort and Convention Hotel. In the inaugural event in 2005, the conference hosted 2,809 delegates and visitors representing 49 countries. This rose to 3,682 participants from 80 countries for the 2007 event held in Dubai. In 2008, it was held in Asia Pacific for the first time and attracted over 7,500 attendees from 57 countries.
