Welcome Message from OMC 2013 Chairman
In recent years several factors have been shaping oil, gas and other energy markets: the unstable financial context, the global crisis still ongoing, the political unrests in many energy producing countries, the development of the unconventional resources. Prices volatility and reduced economic growth in the industrialised countries must cope with the need to secure energy for future generations along with sustainable development.
Substantial investments in infrastructures are needed with special priority given to innovations with the potential to boost productivity. But there is also a need to invest in human capital, including retraining workers whose skills have been replaced by new technologies or international competition.
Social responsibility has become a key issue intersecting the full cycle of a project; its proper management helps to reduce the project risk and promote sustainability.
Looking closer at the events of the last year in the oil & gas scenario, many important challenges have come up: new giant fields discovered in the Eastern Mediterranean, unconventional gas, and more recently oil in North America, but also in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Basin, just to mention a few.
These and other themes will be discussed at the next Offshore Mediterranean Conference and Exhibition on March 20-22 next year. The Opening Plenary Session with the participation of Authorities and Executives of the oil & gas international companies, and the Special Sessions will be dedicated to key topics of large interest for industry as well as to the hottest issues affecting the Mediterranean Region.
OMC conference builds on the strength and numbers of the previous 10 events. In 2011 over 1200 delegates attended the technical sessions and 10.483 professionals from 38 countries visited the exhibition.
OMC 2013 will continue to provide a unique venue for discussing the latest developments in oil & gas technology and their applications, across the entire E&P chain, providing a platform for technical knowledge exchange and networking opportunities for all attendees.
Join us at the next OMC 2013 and share your expertise, experience and best practices with other worldwide professionals.
Chairman OMC 2013
OMC Organizers would like to state that the above mentioned companies are in no way connected with OMC 2013, any of the OMC 2013 printed material, the OMC 2013 website or any other IES/OMC shows. We do not endorse any company to act on our behalf, except those clearly indicated in the Exhibition Manual.
Some companies regularly publicize services to exhibitors at events: they are targeting the publishing community for entries in a ‘fair catalogue’ using on occasion the IES or OMC company name and logos. We would like to bring to your attention that IES and OMC are in no way connected to these companies or to their products. They also usually use a form, which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory, which contracts the purchaser into a multiple-year, non-retractable agreement to pay annual fees.
Several vendors are approved to contact exhibitors about OMC services opportunities, but not the above mentioned ones! When in doubt, ask to email@example.com
PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
