“The Caspian, being one of the oldest petroleum regions, had been relatively disconnected from the rest of the petroleum world for more than half a century. Hosting the First Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition in Astana opened the Region to SPE members from all over the World and served as an excellent knowledge sharing platform for international and local oil and gas professionals.”
