Letter from the Chairman
Dear industry colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I am able to declare the ADIPEC 2018 call for papers now open. Do not miss your chance to be part of the ADIPEC 2018 experience. I encourage you to submit a technical paper for this year’s conference. With market conditions beginning to stabilise after a challenging couple of years, there has never been a better time to be part of ADIPEC. Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, ADIPEC will open its doors to the public from 12–15 November 2018. This year’s edition of the show promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
By submitting abstracts for ADIPEC 2018, you have the chance to shape and influence the topics that the industry will be talking about at this year’s event. ADIPEC 2018 is the perfect platform for you to share your knowledge and expertise. Last year, ADIPEC attracted record numbers of attendees, with over 102,601 people converging on Abu Dhabi to participate in the event. ADIPEC’s prestigious conference was the most successful to date, with more than 959 expert speakers hosting 189 individual conference sessions. From upstream exploration and production technologies, to plant optimisation in the downstream sector, every aspect of the hydrocarbon value chain is analysed, debated and discussed at ADIPEC. This year, the technical categories for paper proposals are more comprehensive than ever before with three additional categories. Papers will be accepted under the categories of: E&P Geoscience; Unconventional Resources; Field Development; Drilling and Completion Technology, Project Engineering and Management; Operational Excellence; HSE; Gas Technology; People and Talent; Offshore and Marine; IOR/EOR, Production Facilities Technologies; and Petroleum Advanced Analytics.
As a technical expert you are invited to demonstrate a pioneering technology that you have been involved with, an innovative strategy or solution to a particularly challenging problem on which you have worked, or exemplify best practice in an area that could significantly boost performance in the energy sector. If you have first-hand experience in any of these areas and would like to share your knowledge with the energy sector’s most influential minds, I encourage you to submit your abstracts before 1 May 2018 to be considered to present at the region’s biggest oil and gas event. We look forward to reviewing your submissions.
