Testimonials from previous CTCE events

"SOCAR is delighted to support and be associated with the SPE’s Annual Caspian Technical Conference & Exhibition for the second time.  We have been heavily involved with this unique and inclusive event where the whole Azeri upstream technical oil & gas community (SPE, SEG, EAGE) can meet, exchange technological ideas with an ever growing international list of attendees.  With the attendance of high level speakers, delegates and technical authors from around the globe as well as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Russia, this event is now a true Caspian Regional conference on the international stage."

"The 4th Caspian Technical Conference and Exhibition has shown that even during the extended period of low oil price, companies have been able to adapt and continue developing oil and gas resources in an efficient manner. It was discussed that digitalisation and localisation play a vital role in increasing efficiency of oil and gas development. Exchange of experiences and ideas happening at the conference promotes collaboration in the industry for more sustainable energy generation."

"I'm a witness and contributor to the story of CTCE since it started in November 2014 in Astana. This event has been established and evolved as a giant technical gathering in the Caspian Region that attracts lots of International interest and attendance. Both the Panel and Technical Sessions cover regional concerns very professionally with the inclusion of Operating & Service companies onboard. Significant development of the technical content of CTCE, in addition to the increasing number of participants, indicates the importance and growth of CTCE."
