PETEX; Supporting the future of the industry
PETEX is the largest subsurface-focussed E&P conference and exhibition in the UK, attracting thousands of delegates from across the world from a spectrum of industry sectors, from super-majors to consultancies. The conference is also attended by a large contingent of geoscience Masters and PhD students.
Based at ExCeL, London, PETEX is a biennial event featuring a technical programme highlighting the latest developments in exploration, development, production and subsurface technology.
The PESGB would like to thank the committee members for volunteering their time to ensure the success of PETEX, and the companies who have released them to serve in this way.
PETEX 2016 promises a comprehensive programme illustrating the latest global activity in exploration, field development, reservoir management and unconventional exploitation, delivered through technical sessions, keynote speeches and poster arena.
Complementing the technical conference, the PETEX 2016 exhibition space will feature industry operators, service companies, consultancies, international oil ministries, universities, and professional organisations.
