The topics have been identified and approved by one of the most influential and
powerful line-ups ever assembled to oversee and endorse any Russian oil and gas event held thus far. The SPE Russian Oil & Gas Technical Conference & Exhibition has a growing reputation for delivering participants of the highest quality, further enhanced by the presence of Robert Dudley, TNK-BP’s Management President and CEO, as Chairman of the Executive

The Chairman and the committee members recently approved the main topics to be discussed in the daily Plenary Sessions at Russian Oil & Gas 2008, which is being held under the overall theme of ‘Technology For Today And Tomorrow’.

The sessions will focus on:
- The Russian Oil and Gas Industry Today and the Role of Technology and New
Techniques in the Global Energy Market;
- The Role of Technology Today and Tomorrow in the Russian Oil and Gas Industry;
- Young Professionals and their Training. Realising the Talent We have Today and Tomorrow.

The invited speakers for these keynote sessions will be unveiled by the end of March, while further details about the papers accepted for up to 20 technical sessions, covering the full spectrum of E&P issues and technologies, will also be revealed.

The Chairman has been joined by an equally distinguished group of industry VIPs on the Executive Committee. His colleagues include Professor Valery Graifer of RITEK (who was General Chairman of the 2006 event), Alexander Korsik of NK Rusneft, Albert Vladimirov of the Gubkin Russian State Oil & Gas University, Adil Mukhitov of Schlumberger (also Chairman of the RO&G08 Programme Committee), Maurice Dijols of Schlumberger, and Iskander Diyashev of IRDC. Also on the Committee are Anatoly Brekhuntsov from Sibnac (Siberian Scientific Analytical Centre), Anatoly Dmitrievsky of the Oil and Gas Research Institute, Chris Finlayson of Shell Russia, Sergei Kudryashov from Rosneft, Ken Eisenmenger from Chevron Neftegaz, Yuri Konstantinovich Shafranik of Sousneftegas, Nikolay Tokarev of Transneft, Simon Turton of Halliburton, Victor Martinov of Gubkin Russian State Oil & Gas University, and Giovanni Paccaloni of SPE.

Vasyl Zhygalo, Event Manager at Reed Exhibitions, commented: “We are very
pleased to see that so many of the companies that participated in 2006 are coming back for 2008 with bigger stands, with exhibitors including RITEK, Tatneft, TNK-BP, Halliburton, Schlumberger, Paradigm and Welltec. We are also delighted to welcome country pavilions from Norway and China to the show.”

The inaugural SPE Russian Oil and Gas event held two years ago created a huge
groundswell of interest both in Russia and internationally, thanks to the outstanding international content and technical quality of the conference programme and speakers, as well as the major companies that participated in the exhibition.

More than 2,500 delegates, trade visitors and exhibitors attended, with that figure expected to grow significantly this year. The exhibition space available has also been increased by 50%. The much-anticipated second event will be held from 28-30th October 2008 at the All-Russia Exhibition Center, close to the centre of Moscow.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to experience the latest state-of-the-art
technology and solutions in use and available both for projects in Russia as well as internationally, while several Topical Luncheons are also planned to be held.
The 2008 conference will be conducted using simultaneous translation, with CD
Roms of all papers to be produced for the delegates in both Russian and English.

The event is organised by Reed Exhibitions and its partner the Society of Petroleum Engineers – who jointly organise other major upstream shows including Offshore Europe in Aberdeen, Intelligent Energy in Amsterdam, and Indian Oil & Gas in Mumbai.
