04 Jul 2013 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON - The 19th Asia Oil Week in Singapore is a landmark event for Asia’s exploration industry. It will bring together keynote speakers from all corners of the world and around 200 senior executives from super-majors, independents, government and national oil companies to interface, network and negotiate deals.
With many countries opening new frontiers, wider business opportunities for the growing number of independents and fast-expanding state oil companies Asia and Australasia have proven themselves to be a central pivot in the global oil and gas game, which is critical to the economic future of the region. The 19th Asia Oil Week will reveal the new exploration, production and development business opportunities in this buoyant market.
Asia’s emerging frontiers and upstream potential will be discussed at the 19th Asia Upstream Conference. The key focus will be laid on the upstream opportunities, Gas-LNG potential, deepwater futures, government policies, new bid rounds and acreage opportunities, risks and investments, new frontier potential in shale gas/oil and CBM-CSM and Australian companies in Asia’s upstream market.
19th Asia Upstream 2013 Conference
Dates: October 3-4, 2013
Place: Goodwood Park Hotel (Singapore).
On October 2nd, prior to the conference, during the 22nd Asia Petroleum Strategy Briefing, chairman Dr. Duncan Clarke of Conference host Global Pacific & Partners provides an in-depth examination of the competitive upstream oil and gas-LNG strategies in Asian exploration and development. This briefing is the longest-running strategy briefing held in Asia and even worldwide.
“Asia’s oil and gas game is moving into new territories, with established producer countries and corporate players eyeing revised strategies. Some with global ventures in mind, others with re-discovered frontiers across this vast region, from Pakistan to New Zealand,” - Clarke states. “Independents have opened new plays and state oil companies have shaped global exploration strategies, while state licensing agencies and Ministries are now seeking more exploration dollars in a globally competitive market.”
Numerous governments and leading oil/energy companies have confirmed over 30 presentations, including from state oil/energy entities in Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Timor Leste. Special foci lie on Myanmar, Southeast Asia, Australia, Philippines, Malaysia, Japan, China, PNG and Thailand.
