The oil and gas industry has always been and continues to be one of the most high-tech, knowledge-intensive and innovative industries in the world. However, in the context of a global geopolitical instability, companies are facing a number of issues, including a slowdown in global energy demand, stronger competition against the backdrop of an acute shortage of investments, fixed assets aging and a decrease in the mineral resource base, as well as the need to introduce alternative energy sources. Only an integrated approach will help to cope with these issues.

In October, industry leaders and reputable experts will come together to identify the solutions that will help industry overcome the problems. Among them include expanding a cost-effective resource base through the development of new fields and enhanced oil recovery at mature fields, rational use of resources, digital transformation of the oil and gas industry, innovative and energy-efficient technologies implementation, improving methods of highly qualified personnel training, and other equally large-scale tasks.

Featuring an extensive technical programme whilst offering insight, networking opportunities, the SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference is the leading oil and gas event in Russia for petroleum professionals and students across the globe. The conference programme will cover a wide variety of topics including all industry disciplines.

What differentiates the 2020 conference from the previous year event?

Технопарк_вектор_зел+сер_eng.jpgEach year we adapt the programme according to the dynamically developing environment. We cover new topics, disciplines and create new formats to enhance your learning and networking experience.

As the conference is rapidly developing, we have made a shift to a new level and this year we will move to the new ultramodern venue, Skolkovo Technopark, which is is the largest technopark and business incubator in Europe and a marvel of engineering.

Skolkovo Technopark is a part of a unique place — Skolkovo Innovation Center — a sustainable ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation that engenders a start-up culture and encourages new technologies development and implementation in our day-to-day life.

Our new venue will unlock new opportunities for delegates throughout the conference, including visits to the laboratories where you will explore innovative technologies including IT, energy efficiency, advanced production, nuclear and space technologies.
