About this Conference

The 2016 SPE Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition (APOGCE) will be held 25-27 October 2016 at the Crown Perth, Perth, Australia.

2016 marks a unique and pivotal year for our industry, especially in the Asia Pacific region, as several mega projects transition to operations and others complete construction. Also, frontier exploration is underway in several Asia Pacific basins, technology enabled developments (FLNG) are progressing and unconventional opportunities are being unlocked. In recognition of this critical and dynamic period, our conference theme is Catching the Next Wave – Delivering Affordable Energy.

Securing future investment, for projects at any scale, will require us to apply lessons from the recent past and respond to emerging technical, regulatory and societal challenges. Keynote speeches, panel discussions and more than 350 technical presentations are targeted to deliver insights to address these challenges, as we build the foundation for future success.

The oil and gas industry is an exciting and dynamic field, a field that provides thousands of people with fulfilling and rewarding careers. Career development, collaboration and knowledge sharing are fundamental to the success of our industry; SPE conferences like APOGCE provide forums to accomplish these objectives, while promoting technical excellence and innovation. In these challenging times, it is more important than ever that our oil and gas professionals are provided with an opportunity to lead, work together, share and expand knowledge, so that the industry can safely deliver energy that is economically viable, environmentally sound and securely transportable. Previous attendees have confirmed that APOGCE is the premier upstream technical conference in the Asia Pacific region, covering the broadest range of disciplines involved in exploration and production activities. APOGCE draws over 1,000 industry experts and professionals together and provides an important platform for technology dissemination, knowledge sharing and collaboration at regional and global scales.

We have developed an exciting 2016 APOGCE conference programme. Attendees will hear from some of our industry’s most influential speakers in keynote sessions, discuss key industry topics with senior managers on panel sessions, expand knowledge and question technical experts in paper presentations, while having an outstanding opportunity to network during exhibitions and ePoster sessions.

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 2016 APOGCE Technical Programme and Conduct Committees, we look forward to welcoming you at APOGCE in Perth, the oil and gas capital of Australia.
