Operational Excellence in Oil, Gas & Petrochemicals 27–28 March, Bahrain

Welcome to the Gulf Safety Forum & OPEX MENA 2019

With the rapid increase in global energy demand, the oil and gas industry faces serious challenges. Oil and gas companies urgently need to implement the latest information technologies and management processes to reduce costs and ensure safe operations.

Companies well aware of current trends and impending changes find themselves in a much better position to adapt ahead of time. With that in mind we are pleased to announce the next Middle East editions of our Safety & Operational Excellence Conferences.

The Gulf Safety Forum 2019 will bring together key decision-makers from end user organisations, technology developers and service and equipment providers to encourage a better understanding of how the right corporate culture, best practices and latest technologies and innovations can lead to increased safety performance. Examples of the cross industry learning and transfer of technologies and methods beyond industry boundaries will make participants re-think Oil and Gas industry practices and leverage success factors.

The sixth edition of OPEX MENA 2019 will gather major operators from the region to share case studies that outline their challenges, successes and key learnings. We will hear from industry leaders, solutions providers and key consultants on the newest tools and techniques that will drive us to even greater levels of operational excellence improvements, allowing companies to innovate in the areas of ‘people’, ‘process’, ‘assets’ and ‘technology’. Latest trends including Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Digitalisation, Visualisation, Big Data and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will be discussed at the event.

Kingdom of Bahrain

An ancient land rich in culture and history, Bahrain - which name means "two seas" in Arabic - was one of the first states in the Gulf to discover oil and to build a refinery. Bahrain has one of the most diversified economies in the region, the result of a commitment to a sustainable future. Manama is the capital and largest city of Bahrain, with an approximate population of 157,000 people. Long an important trading center in the Persian Gulf, Manama is relaxed and cosmopolitan and is a favourite destination for visitors.
