Historic Upstream Summit to Bring Russian-CIS Leaders Together in July

At the Next Generation Oil & Gas Russia & CIS Summit, event organiser GDS International will offer upstream industry leaders a unique opportunity to interact with their peers who are arriving to participate from around the world.

The Park Inn Hotel in St. Petersberg, Russia, will serve as the venue for the summit held July 3-5, 2012, where C-level executives, company Vice Presidents and other key upstream decision-makers from TNK-BP, Gazprom, Rosneft, Lukoil and Socar will discuss their shared challenges and possible ways to overcome them. Speakers at the conference include:

  • Llya Mandrik, VP Exploration Lukoil
  • Rustam Fazleev, VP Drilling Gazprom
  • Tom Quigley, VP Yamal TNK-BP

Summit delegates will engage with fellow industry leaders through analyst-led roundtables and panel discussions that will feature moderated dialogue on major industry issues. The event will actively encourage questions from the floor and delegates will enjoy ample opportunities for one-on-one meetings.

A noteworthy feature of the event is its focus on the end user. Summit Director Ben Williams has worked closely with a committee of industry executives to identify the most pressing upstream strategy and technology demands. Using these criteria, GDS International has invited a select group of analysts and vendors to participate.

Delegates can rest assure that the NG Oil and Gas Russia & CIS Summit will provide them with an experience that is truly relevant to their business.

Baker Hughes, Man Oil Group, Novomet, Cameron, Huawei, Evologics and Putzmeister Solid Pumps are a few of the companies sponsoring the event. Analysts from the Union of Oil and Gas CIS Association will provide their insights throughout the summit program. Rigzone is serving as the exclusive media partner for the summit.

Although the focus of the summit will be Russia, delegates will represent major industry players with operations in Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Europe.
