The conference is important to our region as it is a key enabler for us to open many opportunities of oil and gas, similar to what we have seen in U.S.A and North America.

The change of technology, innovation and improvement open up a lot on non-commercial volumes in the U.S, and that was a big motivation to say how can we bring that technology to the Middle East.
