The 6th edition of Kurdistan’s major annual Conference for the Oil & Gas Industry took place on 5-7 December 2016 at the Hilton Park Lane, London. Welcoming over 300 delegates, the event was a great success highlighting how the Region is embarking on a huge development for its oil and gas industry by establishing strong partnerships with the industry and thus increasing knowledge transfer.
The Conference emphasized the Region’s commitment to dealing with challenges and the lively discussions focused on finding innovative solutions during challenging economic times in areas such as gas processing, electricity, financial transparency and infrastructure security.
We hope to see you again in 2017! The next edition of the Kurdistan-Iraq Oil & Gas Conference will take place in December 2017.
