Chasing the Margins

SPE’s 4th annual Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition will return to Baku, Azerbaijan 1-3 November 2017. This year's theme "Chasing the Margins," will focus on the current market conditions facing the oil and gas industry, both globally and on a local level. It will provide a platform for local, regional, and international experts to discuss topics relevant to maintaining and boosting technological advancements and developments in the region.

"Having such a prestigious SPE technical conference and exhibition in Baku is a fantastic opportunity for colleagues to share challenges and experiences to help progress understanding of the oil and gas industry here in the Caspian region.
