H.E. Mr. Arak Chonlathanont, Minister of Energy is to open the 2011 International Petroleum Technology Conference (2011 IPTC), hosted by PTT Exploration and Production (PTTEP), Thailand’s petroleum exploration and production company. This is the first time that the event will be held in Thailand. The venue is the Bangkok Convention Centre at Central World and more than 3,000 people from the worldwide oil and gas industry are expected to attend.
The 2011 IPTC is a collaborative effort among PTTEP and 4 main petroleum associations: The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). The 5th International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC), has been organized under the theme of “Technology and Operational Excellence: Keys to Sustainable Global Energy”. More than 300 papers from over 400 organizations in 57 countries will be presented, along with interesting exhibitions from PTT Group and other leading global oil and gas companies.
Mr. Anon Sirisaengtaksin (นายอนนต์ สิริแสงทักษิณ), President and CEO of PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited or PTTEP said that PTTEP is proud to be the official host organization for this important and prestigious event. He said it illustrates not only PTT Group’s potential in the global petroleum business, but also shows that Thailand serves as a regional hub for the exploration and production business in Southeast Asia.
The 5th IPTC in Bangkok brings the opportunity for petroleum organizations to discuss and share knowledge, experience, technology and innovation with each other. Besides, it provides great opportunities for Thai secondary and university students for exposure and understanding to the oil and gas industry, which could very well open career opportunities to them as well.
Again, the 2011 IPTC will be taken place from 7 – 9 February 2012 at the Bangkok Convention Centre at Central World, Bangkok, Thailand.
