As part of maintaining their lead role as the Sultanate’s energy partner of choice, Shell experts are chairpersons at the organising committee of the SPE Conference. Shell experts will also participate at the conference where they will be involved in panel discussions, training sessions and workshops. The panelists from Shell will participate in five panel discussions focusing on technology breakthroughs, maximising recovery factors and the successes made in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). Additionally, there will be a Women’s Workshop titled “Women to Excel: Network, Diversity and Inspire”.
Muna Al Shukaili, Shell Development Oman’s External Relations General Manager said, “Participating in events such as the OGWA exhibition are crucial to discover and share new technologies and advances towards a cleaner and more sustainable energy future. For us, this has meant shifting our focus to in-country value and social investments to achieve social and economic development as viable solutions. This is also a great opportunity to present our social investment project, ‘Solar into Schools’ and highlight how it is making an impact on Oman’s development in areas including entrepreneurship, youth development, employment and Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) procedures. Our social investment and business choices embody Shell’s commitment to a lower-carbon future delivered through long-term sustainable programmes.”
Now in its 11th edition, the OGWA Exhibition and Conference has grown to become one of the most important and recognised oil and gas events in the region.
