On behalf of KAZENERGY association, I am pleased to welcome sponsors, delegates, exhibitors and visitors to the inaugural Society of Petroleum Engineers Caspian Technology Conference and Exhibition (CTCE). This event brings together national oil companies, international oil companies, academia, government representatives, service companies, suppliers and manufacturers from around the globe to address specific issues faced by the oil and gas exploration and production industry in Kazakhstan and the Caspian.
CTCE will provide an opportunity for mutually beneficial cooperation to improve technical development and create an open dialogue between local oil and gas communities. Finding solutions to technical challenges will further development in the upstream oil and gas sector which will benefit the local economy, too.
The three-day conference includes 18 sessions and 54 presentations covering a broad range of technical disciplines reviewing technical opportunities, challenges and lessons learned so far in the region. There also will be an exhibition where companies will exchange knowledge and showcase the latest technologies.
SPE serves more than 124,000 members in 135 countries worldwide where they are engaged in energy resources development and production. Its mission is to collect, disseminate, and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, and related technologies for the public benefit; and to provide opportunities for professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence.
As a supporting partner of the event, KAZENERGY association has been involved at every step in the development of this unique networking and learning opportunity. CTCE’s theme Driving Sustainable Energy Growth through Innovation and Partnership is a mutual goal of SPE and KAZENERGY association.
We urge our members to support the event by participating as delegates and viewing exhibits to further dialogue between local and international businesses.
SPE CTCE helps KAZENERGY association to reach its goals, as well as furthering the industry in forward movement to the next stage of development regarding technology transfer and discussion. We wish all delegates, exhibitors and visitors productive discussions and every success.
