Perth, Australia (30 September 2016) – 2016 marks a pivotal year for Asia Pacific as several mega projects transition to operations and others complete construction. Frontier exploration is underway in several Asia Pacific basins, technology enabled developments are progressing and unconventional opportunities are being unlocked.
The SPE Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Conference and Exhibition (APOGCE) 2016 will apply lessons learnt from the recent past and respond to emerging technical, regulatory and societal challenges. Keynote speeches, panel discussions and technical papers are targeted to deliver insights to address these challenges. The event will be held in Perth, Australia from 25 to 27 October this year.
