Welcome from the organising committee
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
On behalf of the Organising Committee of the 20th Anniversary Turkmenistan Oil & Gas Conference, OGT 2015, we would like to welcome you to Turkmenistan. OGT 2015 will take place on 17-19 November, 2015 in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Conference is organised by the Ministry of Oil and Gas Industry and Mineral Resources of Turkmenistan in partnership with Summit Trade Events.
In today’s ever-changing global demand for energy, Turkmenistan, with its enormous resource potential and a favourable investment climate as well as transit opportunities, is set to play a major role. With vast reserves of strategic raw hydrocarbons, Turkmenistan is interested in sustainable development and strengthening of energy cooperation on the basis of equal partnership and mutual benefit.
Under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, the country’s oil and gas industry is rapidly undergoing fundamental transformation, simultaneously developing a powerful industrial infrastructure and diversifying export routes for Turkmen energy. Of paramount importance is exploration of the Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea as well as continued work on the exiting onshore fields, including the super-giant Galkynysh gas field.
Further progress of global oil and gas industry is characterised by growing need for investment. This is due, partly, to the rising complexity of hydrocarbon occurrence which necessitates the development of innovative technologies, resulting in a corresponding increase in capital expenditures for exploration & production.
The 3-day event will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in Turkmenistan’s oil and gas sector as well as deliver a unique breadth of content covering upstream, midstream, and downstream, in addition to most recent technological advances.
OGT 2015 will once again highlight the enormous possibilities that exist for companies in Turkmenistan, and will provide numerous opportunities to meet new partners in this exciting market.
Over 700 delegates from over 40 countries will represent companies, associations, and government organisations. In addition, delegates can to take part in planned lecture series, technical seminars, round table discussions as well as numerous networking functions.
We look forward to welcoming you in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan this coming November
