Conference Chairperson and Technical Programme Chairperson Message
We are delighted to announce the 2018 SPE Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition (APOGCE) will be held 23-25 October 2018 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
As our industry adapts to a new status quo operating under sustained low oil prices, we are also having to adjust to public pressure to provide affordable energy in a low carbon world. Given these often contradicting challenges, we believe our conference theme Challenge the Conventional provides opportunities to showcase our accomplishments, identify areas we can strive to improve, and enable collaboration and knowledge sharing amongst participants.
We have lined up a high quality set of keynote and panel sessions that address a wide range of topics to Challenge the Conventional. These include senior industry leaders, experienced regulators and prominent academics. We have also scheduled a diverse set of technical sessions to share experience on how to remain successful in today’s low margin business climate, while taking into account society’s expectations. Please help us in making this an exciting technical programme by submitting paper proposals highlighting your learning’s and insights of “Challenging the Conventional”. We would appreciate your submission of paper proposals by 15 January 2018.
In conjunction with the comprehensive technical programme and showcase, APOGCE 2018 will also feature exciting activities and programmes organised to inspire the younger generation and broaden their knowledge of the energy industry such as the Young Professionals Workshop, the Regional Student Paper Contest, Education Day and Teachers' Day.
Thank you in advance for your participation. With the support of our industry colleagues, we believe that the conference will be a successful and significant event. On behalf of the 2018 APOGCE Organising Committees, we look forward to welcoming you at APOGCE in Brisbane.
