STRATEGY. POLICY. TECHNOLOGY: SETTING THE STAGE FOR THE FUTURE OF THE HEAVY OIL INDUSTRY
There is a growing interest in exploring and upgrading heavy oil to meet the future energy needs. Reports suggest by 2030, the global crude oil demand is estimated to be about 89 MMbbls/day; and an approximate 30% of that production is expected to come from heavy oil.
Technological innovations, advancements in enhanced oil recovery methods, and infrastructural upgrades are increasingly making it possible to explore and upgrade heavy and extra-heavy oil; enabling the oil and gas producing countries to meet increasing consumption, growing demand, and production levels.
Providing a convening platform for the global heavy oil community, across the entire value chain, to convene, exchange knowledge, and do business the World Heavy Oil Congress & Exhibition (WHOC) offers companies and heavy oil professionals exceptional opportunity to network, share project insights, generate new business, and meet global heavy oil players.
Taking place in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman from Monday 2 - Wednesday 4 September 2019, WHOC hosts an all-encompassing three-day technical conference featuring case studies and presentations; a two-day strategic conference featuring key insights from global business and thought leaders across the heavy oil value chain, and a three-day international exhibition where NOCs, IOCs, EPCs, OEMs, service and technology companies will showcase their projects, products and services.
