Muscat, Oman:Oman’s biggest oil and gas event and one of the most important in the Middle East region, is set to happen from the 9th to the 11th of March at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, Muscat, Oman.
The Oman Petroleum & Energy Show (OPES), now an inclusive event, integrates the well-established 12th edition of Oil & Gas West Asia (OGWA), the high-profile SPE conference at OPES, and the recently launched Gas & LNG Show, Offshore & Marine Show, Stainless Steel World Middle East Exhibition, and Digital Oil & Gas Zone.
Ashley Roberts, acting General Manager and Portfolio Director, Omanexpo says “We deem it our responsibility to tightly support the government’s direction in its long-term development strategy to continuously advance the industry. The evolving global energy landscape and the optimism that comes along with it as a result of more buoyant global oil prices, major gas discoveries, huge investments in large-scale energy projects, and increased hydrocarbon, crude, offshore oil and gas production and exploration activities, has necessitated the restructuring of our oil and gas event.”
More than 400 local and global oil and gas companies from over 20 countries are participating in the exhibition, with some of the biggest oil and gas companies such as BP Exploration, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), Schlumberger, Oman LNG, Halliburton, Shell, Qatar Petroleum, MOL Group, Baker Hughes, CTS Middle East, and much more, leading the nearly filled venue space.

Distinguished industry leaders from representing 28 countries will share insights and success stories through informative, technical discussions and presentations on key topics such as gas exploration, production, offshore drilling and field development, IOR/EOR methods, offshore emerging technologies, HSE and asset management, digitalization, artificial intelligence, among others.
