Major exploration companies to celebrate winning gas tenders

Saudi Arabia: Wednesday, August 22 - 2001 @ 14:50

Winners of the recent gas deals including Shell, BP, ExxonMobil, Conoco and Occidental Petroleum have chosen to celebrate their contracts by exhibiting at SOPEC’s 5th anniversary. Over the past half decade SOPEC has attracted more than 500 companies from over 25 countries.

In addition to the previous companies confirmed, exhibitors include Schlumberger, 3M, Al-Abdulkarim, FHF, NPC, ATTEST and many more from countries as far as Canada and India. SOPEC 2002 reinforces the organizer’s belief that there are too many events claiming to focus on Saudi Arabia, organized outside of the Kingdom. SOPEC 2002 will guarantee that you get direct access to the key decision makers in the world’s most prolific energy market.

The year 2002 heralds the start of the implementation of the three gas ventures which the Kingdom awarded in June 2001 to a consortium of multinational oil corporations. SOPEC 2002 marks the opening of the Kingdom’s upstream hydrocarbon sector to foreign investment for the first time since nationalization in the seventies. The integrated gas, power and water desalination projects are expected to have a total value of $25bn. The scope of investment opportunities in the Kingdom’s pipeline infrastructure, petrochemical industry, power generation, telecommunication and e-commerce has never been greater. SOPEC 2002 aims to cover all the associated oil and gas industry sectors with specialized pavilions on gas technology and e-commerce.

SOPEC 2002 promises to be a spectacular event in the year when the Kingdom celebrates its centenary. The event will be further enhanced by a collection of social and formal activities ranging from technical seminars, tours of petroleum installations and a spectacular gala dinner in the shape of an authentic Arabian Bedouin Night.

ITE are once again proud to organize SOPEC, one of 250 events we organize world wide in more than 25 countries. ITE’s oil and gas portfolio include prestigious events such as MIOGE in Russia, KIOGE in Kazakhstan and PROGAS in Egypt which are well known in the exhibition industry for their high quality.
