Dear Colleagues,

The International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) will be coming for the first time to Saudi Arabia, an oasis of opportunities and a land of a great energy vision. It will  take place at the Dhahran EXPO in Dhahran, on 13–15 January 2020, with Saudi Aramco serving as the Exclusive Host of the 12th edition of the event.

On behalf of the IPTC Conference Programme Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit your abstract for consideration in the IPTC 2020 technical programme. The deadline for submitting abstracts is 31 March 2019. Abstract submission is available online, click here to submit. Submissions can be made for any of the 50 technical categories, most of them diverse and multidisciplinary in nature which we believe are representative of the issues and challenges facing the industry today.

As a distinguished speaker at IPTC, you will have the chance to present new technologies and best practices to peers from around the world, provide your organisation with a world-class platform to showcase new and emerging technologies, and share your professional expertise to a diverse technical group of industry professionals and operations management. Furthermore, we will be offering several technical and non-technical panel discussions that cover a wide range of topics and challenges related to the oil and gas industry.

IPTC is a collaborative effort among the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). IPTC is widely regarded by industry professionals as a unique opportunity for technology dissemination and knowledge sharing on a global scale in a truly integrated manner.

We look forward to your contribution and knowledge-sharing in making IPTC 2020 a remarkable event and to welcoming you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in January 2020.
