About the Conference

Spanning the entire oil and gas value chain, EGYPS 2021 Technical Conference has been created after a thorough two-stage review by the Technical Committee, comprising 89 oil and gas specialists.

The conference programme features 152 experts speaking at 40 sessions, covering the latest research findings, industry trends and challenges, new project developments, state of the art technologies, as well as industry best practices. The topics range from exploration, field development and drilling to project management, operational excellence and HSE, not forgetting refining and petrochemical developments, biofuels, gas processing, offshore and marine, people development, finance and digitalisation.

2020 and the start of the COVID pandemic, brought an unprecedented set of challenges to all industries globally.  In the energy industry, the risks and uncertainties experienced, coupled with decreased oil demand and a low price environment challenged and changed businesses and operations around the world.  As recovery continues, the EGYPS 2021 Technical Conference convenes the industry’s oil and gas professionals, providing the opportunity to learn how to stay technically relevant, digitally competitive and business resilient, fully embracing the new normal and the constantly evolving market landscape.
