Chairmen's Welcome Letter
The International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) is a multi-disciplinary event sponsored by four leading industry societies – the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
The fifth edition of the IPTC will be held 15-17 November 2011 at the Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld in Bangkok, Thailand, with the theme:
“Technology and Operational Excellence: Keys to Sustainable Global Energy”
The programme committee for the 2011 IPTC includes professionals from all sponsoring societies who have set high selection criteria for the papers presented at this conference, ensuring an unrivalled quality of this multi-session programme. Thirty (30) categories with a diverse range of topics for oral presentations and posters are proposed. We believe that these categories and topics, most of them of a multidisciplinary nature, are representative of the issues facing the industry today.
Papers are invited on a variety of themes, including Exploration, Reservoir, Drilling and Completions, Production and Development, Mid-Stream Gas and Over-Arching Industry Issues (HSE, Security, Human Resources, Business and Social Challenges). The list of technical categories with a description of the various topics is provided in this package as a guide.
On behalf of all the sponsoring societies; AAPG, EAGE, SEG and SPE, we are pleased to invite you to contribute to one of the most renowned and prestigious events in the industry by submitting a paper proposal (abstract) for consideration by the programme committee.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is 21 February 2011.
Members of the technical committee representing the sponsoring societies will rate and select papers, taking into consideration the quality of the technical information and the regional and technical diversity of the content.
This is your opportunity to contribute to the value of the 2011 IPTC conference and to be recognised as a published author.
With your involvement and commitment, the 2011 IPTC will be a success. We look forward to your contribution to an excellent conference programme.
