Look Ahead to October 2010, Answer SPE ROG’s “Call for Papers” Now
It’s budget planning season and I hope we’re all looking ahead to a more profitable 2010 as many companies begin to emerge from the recession. Yes, I know there’s still a lot of carnage out there, but there are bright spots as well. And the global changes that are occurring right now in the economy will certainly favor national oil companies Р and especially Russia.
So here’s the first sales pitch from my side: if you’re an upstream operator, service or supply company that considers itself a “player” that will be growing in the Russian market for the long haul, may I recommend that you start thinking now about participating in the 2010 SPE Russian Oil&Gas Technical Conference and Exhibition which will be held next October in Moscow.
Oil&Gas Eurasia is proud to have been selected for the third time as “Official Publication” of the 2010 SPE event. For details on advertising and marketing through our October 2010 issue, please write to [email protected] and request a copy of our 2010 Media Planner which has just come off the press.
Co-chairing next year’s conference is Mars Khasanov, Director of Rosneft’s Corporate Scientific and Technical Center, and Andrei Gladkov, General Director of the company, Modeling Technologies Center. And the committee has just come out with its “Call for Papers”.
If you have a paper that shares best practices or innovative solutions to solving problems in any of the subjects listed below, the Paper Selection Committee (jury) would like to hear from you. Visit the 2010 SPE ROG website for details on how to submit your paper at www.russianoilgas.com. The list of topics are as follows:
Health, Safety & Environment Р Obligation, Responsibility and Care
Geology and Geophysics РК role of modeling at all stages of geological prospecting
Reservoir Evaluation and Engineering Р integrated approach for improving recovery
Well Construction Р Drilling & Completion
Facilities, Construction, and Projects Р from smart design to effective implementation
Production Operations Р Optimization for the life of the field
A couple of tips I gleaned from www.russianoilgas.com is that priority will be given to SPE-standard paper proposals, with a clear-cut summary. This will help the Conference Program Committee choose the most interesting and relevant paper proposals, merging together the respective experiences, innovations, traditions and latest practices. A full set of guidelines for submitting a paper proposal can also be found on the site. So don’t delay.
And if you’re looking to book space at the exhibition which is held along side the conference, please email: [email protected] or phone her in Moscow at +7 495 937-6861. If you are based outside of Russia, phone Reed Exhibitions at the Exhibitor Helpline: +44 0208 271 2142.
We at Oil&Gas Eurasia look forward to a great 2010 which marks our 10 year anniversary in Russia. We’ll be celebrating at next year’s NefteGaz exhibition and we hope you’ll join us. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy our October 2009 issue with is report from the RAO CIS Offshore oil and gas conference and exhibition in St. Petersburg, one of Russia’s premier oil and gas events and one of many supported by Oil&Gas Eurasia.
