Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Executive and Programme Committees, we are pleased to welcome you back in-person to our 9th annual SPE Caspian Technical Conference.

Over the last few years, the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry have been wide-ranging and unprecedented. With rising global demand, highly volatile prices and net zero ambitions, the oil and gas industry faces major challenges in reducing costs, optimising the performance of its assets, improving its environmental footprint and avoiding future skills shortages. Assessing current challenges and identifying how to navigate this period of rapid and extensive change will be a vital conversation for
investors, operators, service companies and government entities across the Caspian region.

This year’s conference features an extensive technical programme including the best peer-selected papers covering nine technical disciplines to update the industry on the latest technologies, industry best practices and emerging topics. The keynote programme will deliver highly respected technical content and lively discussion across the following topic areas – Adapting to the Challenges of a Lower Carbon Environment; Delivering Sustained Value through the Digital Transformation; and Attracting, Retaining and Harnessing the Potential of New Talent.

Fifteen technical and twelve knowledge sharing poster sessions will encompass presentations across a range of different topics. These presentations will offer the opportunity to share knowledge in an open and constructive environment.

We hope that you take this opportunity to meet and network with old and new colleagues, and discover new technologies and insights into the industry.

Kindest Regards,

Programme Committee Co-chairs
