“The Inaugural SPE Annual Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition held in Astana, Kazakhstan in 2014 provided a unique opportunity for industry professionals and academics alike to participate in the sharing of exceptional technical work products and processes driving the energy sector in this vital region of the world.  The event served to catalyse learnings for the benefit of local and regional practitioners while also serving as an excellent platform to encourage development of the youth in our industry”.

“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.”
Aizhana Jussupbekova, Satellites Reservoir Engineering Team Lead, North Caspian Operating Company
