Gastech, the leading and longest running exhibition and conference for the international gas, LNG (liquefied natural gas) and energy industries, has been discussing predictions for a rise and onset of upstream and technical advances in the marketplace – enhancing projects and bolstering efficiencies at this year’s OTC.
Taking place in Barcelona, Spain from 17-20 September 2018, Gastech attracted in excess of 1,000 extremely high quality abstracts in its recent call for papers campaign. The Gastech Governing Body met on 23 and 24 May in Barcelona to review and select the abstracts where 200 were finally agreed upon to be presented at this year’s conference.
The selection of the abstracts for the Gastech 2018 conference also coincided with the second edition of the Gastech Roadshow at which market diversification, monetisation and growth potentials were discussed.
“Conversations from the Gastech roadshow and Governing Body meeting have placed strong emphasis on the need for industry collaboration, new strategies and technological advancements.” Said Director of the Gastech Governing Body, Gavin Sutcliffe.
“From these conversations and the abstracts selected for the Gastech 2018 conference, we are seeing strong developments across the upstream industry especially in leading innovation and efficiency as the energy industry moves to lower carbon strategies.”
The full strategic and technical conference programme for Gastech 2018 is hence expected to be released this week.
With such strong emphasis on the upstream sector and technologies being discussed at the Governing Body meeting and the Gastech Roadshow, the Gastech team has continued these discussions at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas from 30 April to 3 May.
After a successful two days, Gastech is continuing to exhibit on stand #1255. The team has already enjoyed meeting with key upstream industry partners and associates to learn more about their on-going developments and strategies and how these will impact the global gas, LNG and energy industries.
