Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, it gives us great pleasure to announce that the second SPE Annual Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition will take place in Baku in November 2015 hosted by SOCAR.

This event follows the successful first edition of the conference held in Astana, Kazakhstan in 2014 and will build on SPE’s plans to increase technical resources, programmes, and events in the region to support the Caspian’s oil and gas professionals.
The conference programme will encompass topical panel sessions and technical sessions with a focus on research-based presentations to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, best practices and experiences. The event focus will be regional and we invite proposals from across the Caspian region as well as globally.

SPE welcomes a diverse range of contributors and would like to receive abstracts from

  • Oil and gas professionals, experts, and managers
  • Service, supply and consulting companies
  • Government regulators
  • Health, safety, and environmental professionals and representatives
  • Local, national and international governmental organisations
  • Non-governmental organisations
  • Professional societies
  • Universities, research centres, and institutes

We look forward to receiving your technical proposals and to seeing you in Baku in November 2015.
