SPE Middle East Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition 28 - 29 Nov 2018 Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa Manama, Bahrain

Welcome Letter

Dear Industry Colleagues,


On behalf of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), and the conference committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 4th edition of the SPE Middle East Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition to be held from 28-29 November 2018 in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain.

The theme for this conference is “Intelligent Lift 4.0”. This will be the basis for the conference technical agenda and discussion topics.

The artificial lift industry is embarking on a new challenge where focus is shifted to intelligent lift 4.0. We define intelligent lift 4.0 as the next phase of the artificial lift industry driven by the four disruptions:  data volumes, computational power, connectivity and emergence of new analytics and business intelligence capabilities. Intelligent lift 4.0 will usher a new chapter of the industry’s history. Operators and service providers believe in this mission and such a feat is impossible to achieve without close collaboration amongst stakeholders.

This event will certainly bring together the industry's subject matter experts in artificial lift, operators and service providers alike to share their best practices, cutting-edge technologies, successful business models and success stories, allowing the production community at large to leverage and benefit from their experiences.

In the 4th edition of this excellent and successful conference, we expect to build on the momentum from the last edition and anticipate a highly diversified and engaging technical programme for 2018. We look forward to your valued participation.

Yours truly,

Jamal Al Mufleh
Conference Chairperson
General Supervisor, Production and Facilities Development
