Muscat, Increasingly becoming an important part of the future oil mix due to rapid innovation and technological advancements, heavy and extra-heavy oil resources have been estimated at 40% of the world’s oil reserves; of which about one-third are said to be in the Middle East.
Held under the auspices of the Ministry of Oil and Gas, and hosted by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the World Heavy Oil Congress and Exhibition will be held at Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre on Monday. The conference delivers a global platform for the entire heavy oil value chain to convene, connect, and engage in conversation.
The event offers heavy oil professionals unparalleled opportunity for knowledge exchange through a three-day technical conference on topics from upstream, midstream, and downstream heavy oil operations, and heavy oil research and technology. The technical conference is steered by the technical committee.
WHOC 2018 will also provide heavy oil professionals a platform to learn and hear high level strategies, and mid to long-term plans for the sector from industry leaders and decision makers through a two-day business programme. The business programme has been put together following extensive research with the industry, and will host C level executives and industry experts as panelists and speakers.
Supporting the conference is a three-day international exhibition where businesses will showcase the best in terms of products, technology, and services. The international exhibition will provide the NOCs, IOCs, Service Providers, EPCs, OEMs, and technology providers a global platform to do business, and network with existing and new clients.
