After marking over 40 years of oil exports to other countries, the Sultanate of Oman is making huge investments and working closely with international oil & gas firms to enhance its total production output from 710,000 bpd in 2007 to as much as 900,000 bpd by 2011. Oman's natural gas production, which has been growing steadily over the years, is likewise expected to further increase as major gas fields come on stream within the next five years.
The Oil & Gas West Asia (OGWA) Exhibition and Conference will be a platform for showcasing the operations of the oil & gas industry in Oman as well as a forum for discussing the latest developments and future directions of the industry. Held under the patronage of the Ministry of Oil & Gas since 1998, the three-day biennial event is now on its eighth edition and has built a reputation as one of the established oil & gas shows in the Middle East region.
As before, OGWA will once again feature all leading companies that play a key role in the continued development of the region's oil & gas industry. With the participation of national oil & gas companies in the GCC and international oil & gas firms, the event will truly be a major gathering of industry professionals from within Oman and from other parts of the world.
In addition to the exhibition, OGWA will also feature an international conference that will give industry professionals the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing the industry.
