Oman is preparing to host Offshore Development Symposium 2014 taking palce on 9-10th December at Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Muscat.
The event, organised by the Ministry of Oil and Gas, will look at design, engineering, construction, operation, risk and safety associated with the various types for offshore platforms for the sultanate.
Some of the discussions at the two-day simposium will also aim to explore the best platform to support the requirements of the field, and the engineering and technological requirements to establish and operate.
As part of the symposium, innovative technologies and ground-breaking solutions within the offshore exploration and production industry will be showcased.The exhibition, accompanying the conference, will present innovations and development projects of offshore fields.
Oman's domestic oil and gas sector will also be on focus, as the forum will aim to address the strategic, commercial, technology and regulatory issues that could play a significant part in shaping the industry's future. Also on the radar will be a call to attract foreign investment in offshore blocks for a number of concessions offered by the Omani government for exploration and development.
Maneesh Nair, conference director of Global Exhibitions and Conferences, said; "We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with Ministry of Oil and Gas with the goal of rapidly accelerating the growth of the offshore oil and gas sector in Oman. The offshore hydrocarbon sector is experiencing phenomenal growth due to the resurgence of exploration and drilling in the east of Oman."
"The conference will deliver the latest technological innovations, solutions and lessons learned from leading industry professionals and will focus on the process of managing major projects with its inherent cost implications. The increasing interest in the Sultanate's emerging hydrocarbon potential and recent drilling offshore success in Oman is spurring interest from major operators and independents alike.".
