Dear Colleagues,

The International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) is a multi-disciplinary event sponsored by four leading industry societies – American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).


The 11th edition of the IPTC will be held 26-28 March 2019 in Beijing, China, with the prime theme:
“Partnership and Innovation: The Silk Road towards a Sustainable Energy Future”


IPTC is renowned for bringing technical professionals and industry experts together, from exploration geoscientists to production engineers. The programme committee consists of subject matter experts from all sponsoring societies who have set high selection criteria for the papers to be presented at this conference, ensuring an unrivalled quality for this multi-session programme. With over 30 technical categories, most of them diverse and multidisciplinary in nature, we believe that these topics are representative of the issues and challenges facing the industry today.

Panel discussions with industry leaders and technical sessions will address a broad range of topics and challenges including the following:

  • Industry Cycles: What Have We Learned?
  • Emerging Technologies – Beyond Cost Saving and Creating Efficiency
  • The Role of Gas in the Future Energy Mix
  • What’s Next in Unconventional?
  • Industry 4.0: What’s in it for Our Industry?
    • Big Data, Cyber Security, Automation, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, etc

This prestigious conference will provide a unique platform for leaders, professionals and researchers to share their experience, innovations, technology advancements and best-in-class practices for a sustainable energy future.

With your support, the conference will no doubt be a successful and significant event. We thank you in advance for your active participation and valued contribution, and look forward to meeting you in Beijing in 2019.
