Heavy oil community set for Aberdeen venue next month

Heavy oil community set for Aberdeen venue next month
Since its launch in 2006 in Beijing, World Heavy Oil Congress has gained the reputation as the strongest platform for international and national oil companies, governments, service companies and international experts to navigate challenges and opportunities related to unlocking heavy oil around the globe.

Since its launch in 2006 in Beijing, World Heavy Oil Congress has gained the reputation as the strongest platform for international and national oil companies, governments, service companies and international experts to navigate challenges and opportunities related to unlocking heavy oil around the globe.

Its production, transportation, and refining presents special challenges compared to conventional oil, and the need to bring this rich resource to market on an economically feasible basis, whilst minimising the environmental impact, requires serious industry discussion.

Every 18 months, in varying global locations, business leaders and technical experts converge at World Heavy Oil Congress to address these issues.

Taking place from September 10-13, the Congress will this time be hosted by Aberdeen, actively encouraged by the city council, in part because heavy crudes are becoming a part of the North Sea development and production scene, notably by Xcite and Statoil.

The theme is “Improving Sustainability through Innovation and Collaboration”. More than 140 technical presentations will be made. There will be networking, short courses and technical tours.

In essence, the four-day event is dedicated to improving exploration, recovery, production and transportation of this rich resource.

“Global reserves of conventional oil are on a rapid decline, while abundant unconventional reserves endow heavy oil production with great exploration potential and broad development prospects. World Heavy Oil Congress is the premier forum focused on unconventional oil and business opportunities, technologies, economics and environmental impact from its development,” says Wes Scott, VP of dmg Events, who produce the World Heavy Oil Congress.

Registration and further information can be found at www.worldheavyoilcongress.com.

Energy will be actively covering the event and the September edition will feature some of the latest news and developments in heavy oil.
