SOCHI, Russia, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Many of the region's leading executives will convene in Sochi for two and a half days of focused meetings, workshops, peer-led panel discussions and working lunches at GDS International's NG Oil and Gas Russia & CIS summit.
The summit will take place between 9 and 11 July 2013 at the five-star Radisson Blu Resort & Congress Centre in Sochi. Having previously run two successful oil and gas summits in the CIS and Russia region, this year's event also promises to be extremely valuable with attendees discussing safe, cost-effective, low-risk offshore ice management strategies for forthcoming Arctic exploration; production and major projects; and emerging innovations in heat/energy transfer, seismic acquisition techniques. Delegates will also be looking at broader issues, including enabling the mobile oilfield workforce with improved communications technologies and adapting more efficient cyber security solutions, best practices in waste management; completions, drilling and logistics.
Attending NG Oil and Gas Russia & CIS this year will be: Nikolai Markov, VP of IT for Vostokgazprom; Sergey Zimin, Deputy GD, Head of Field Development for Rosneft- Vankorneft; Arkadij Bokserman, Advisor to GD at Zarubezhneft; Sergej Arefiev, Deputy GD for Field Development- Chief Geologist at Lukoil- WS.Pokachevneftegaz; and Aleksandr Gritsenko, Advisor to GD for Gazprom Promgaz.
Joe Thompson, Next Generation Oil and Gas CIS Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the summit, said: "We are proud to launch the third annual NG Oil & Gas Russia/CIS summit, and now looking forward to meeting our oil operator and oilfield clients in Sochi in July at the superb five-star Radisson Blue Hotel."
He continues: "Our summits in Moscow and St Petersburg have delivered fantastic ROI for our customers and ensure they return to their offices knowing they have a better relationship with their prospects, a fully packed sales pipeline which will lead to a lower cost of sale. Proof of these results is shown in our 67 per cent retention rate and service companies doing business with our delegates that attend."
"Right now, the oil and gas climate in Russia has never been so exhilarating. Super majors are merging and scrambling for the right to work in the Arctic, plus the scale of investments into new technologies and innovation has never been higher. Gazprom, Rosneft, Zarubezhneft and Lukoil work with us on our oil and gas summits to find the right services and kit to expand their market share, reduce downtime and ensure they stay competitive globally."
