Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to one of the largest Russian oil and gas events – the SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference. The event will be held on 16–18 October 2017 in Moscow, Russia.

Year after year, the oil and gas industry faces new challenges that require more time and resources to solve them. The percentage of hard-to-recover reserves in the Russian mineral resource base is growing and more innovations are required. By creating and promoting innovations, we contribute to the progress, and by developing and applying technologies, we build a sustainable base for future generations.

Events like the SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference serve as a platform to bring together the efforts of different specialists battling for the industry wellness: strengthening the ties of scientific and engineering societies, seeking investments both from foreign and national companies, adopting best practices, and sharing intelligence on the most trending and interesting topics.

This year the conference technical programme includes presentations on traditional and hot topics including well construction, hard-to-recover reserves, oil and gas production, geomechanics, etc. Special attention will be paid to the development of the oil and gas market in Russia and worldwide, big data analysis and interpretation, modelling development and latest technologies.

During the conference you will also have opportunity to join plenary sessions and roundtable discussions devoted to different oil and gas industry issues. 

We extend a warm and cordial invitation to you to take part in the conference, share your achievements and ideas, find out more about colleagues’ projects presented at technical and eposter knowledge sharing sessions, discuss relevant problems at roundtables, extend your professional network and use your time productively.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference 2017!
