Message from the Chairperson
Dear Industry Colleagues,
On behalf of the Executive and Programme Committees, I am pleased to welcome you to the SPE Conference at the Oman Petroleum & Energy Show which will be held in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman from 9–11 March 2020 at the landmark Oman Convention & Exhibition Center.
The theme of the conference is, ‘Shaping the Future of the Energy Industry’, where a diverse mix of professionals and decision-makers from around the globe will meet to weigh in with their expert opinions on future advances, challenges and trends in the oil and gas industry.
The industry has demonstrated resilience to the repeated cycles of low oil prices by transforming itself efficiently, and innovatively in addressing related challenges to grow sustainably. However, it is not clear how such repeated transformation cycles will shape the future of the industry.
Building on the success of this conference in the area of EOR, the 2020 conference will expand to include other focus areas in Oman and the region, such as IOR, Gas and LNG as well as Offshore and Marine. Thus providing ample opportunities to share experiences, explore new technologies, and test innovative methodologies.
It is time to discover and share… I look forward to seeing you in Muscat.
Salman Mohammed Al-Shidi
Director General of Management of Petroleum Investments
Ministry of Oil and Gas, Sultanate of Oman
