Put Abu Dhabi in your April diary

Come April, many of our industry’s leading figures in health, safety, security, the environment and social responsibility will gather in Abu Dhabi for the SPE’s
biennial HSSE-SR Conference.

Immediately following that event, on Thursday, 19 April, IOGP and IPIECA are joining forces to run our own event: an International Oil & Gas Showcase.

Open to all IOGP and IPIECA members as well as other industry representatives, the Showcase will highlight a range of good practices from each Association – specially selected for particular relevance in the Middle East.

The main feature of the Showcase will be interactive poster sessions. These will cover:

  • Well control
  • Safety
  • Security
  • Environmental management, including water and biodiversity
  • The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
  • Climate change
  • Oil spill preparedness and response

Also featured will be updates by IOGP and IPIECA Executive Directors Gordon Ballard and Brian Sullivan, both of whom will focus on their respective Associations’ accomplishments and current activities.

‘With so many people from our industry gathered in Abu Dhabi in April, flying the flag for IOGP and IPIECA was too good an opportunity to miss. Our International Oil & Gas Showcase will provide participants with valuable insights into upstream operations as well as the scope for global networking,’ Gordon says.

Those who sign up for the Showcase will also receive an invitation to the IOGP dinner at the Jumereiah Eithad Tower Hotel the night before.

The Showcase sponsor is ADNOC, which is hosting the Showcase at their office overlooking the Corniche. ADNOC will also present a keynote address and provide lunch for all participants.
