The inaugural edition of Oil & Gas Myanmar is aiming to be a key driver in establishing a holistic supply chain of equipment and services for the burgeoning oil and gas industry in Myanmar.
The exhibition, to be held from October 15-17, will feature more than 100 exhibitors from 22 countries covering products and expertise catering to the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the industry, the organisers said.
“Myanmar opening the industry to international energy companies, has triggered a growing demand for the correct equipment and capabilities in this field. With much of this expertise residing outside the shores of Myanmar, Oil & Gas Myanmar has gathered a host of internationally known industry names introducing the necessary equipment and services for each sector of the oil and gas value chain,” said Chua Buck Cheng, project director for engineering events of organiser Singapore Exhibition Services (SES).
With the majority of the oil and gas industry in Myanmar currently focused on upstream activities, Oil & Gas Myanmar has pooled together exhibitors including 3D-GEO, Downhole Products, Fluid Inclusion, Lonestar Triplefast, Sensitron Singapore and Technics Offshore Engineering.
These exhibitors will showcase a range of upstream products and services including geophysical products and services, geological studies and consulting, modern technologies of drilling, offshore and onshore field exploitation, seismic data acquisition and surveying among many others, SES said.
Keven Asquith, CEO and exploration specialist at 3D-GEO, said: “Having worked with many of the international energy companies currently exploring in Myanmar, we can certainly assist petroleum explorers in Myanmar by improving their seismic data quality and geotechnical evaluation workflows to optimise basin-wide and prospect evaluations.
“We hope to refresh our knowledge of Myanmar and collaborate with the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) and local industry partners to tackle the challenges of exploring and developing petroleum resources.”
Peter Pratabh, business development manager of Downhole Products, said there has been a growing demand in Myanmar for Downhole Products equipment.
“We are very optimistic about the current oil and gas industry in Myanmar and are looking forward to further development of its upstream sector.”
Local oil and gas services companies Parami Energy and Smart Technical, along with Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) will make up the local presence at the expo.
