Message from CEO

Ali Rashid Al Jarwan

It is my great honor to have you with us at GOTECH Conference. GOTECH is growing to serve the industry in Technology, Innovation, and the E&P best practice. The 3-day conference and exhibition from the 13th - 15th March 2023, will be a platform where government representatives, industry leaders, professionals, and researchers in addition to service companies, meet to connect on the industry status today and develop a clear picture about the market position and establish a comfortable pathway for the near future.

GOTECH was initially based on the quality of technologies deployed, not on quantity of materials and the same roots are emphasized this time - the innovative approach of industry professionals to review the best practices, with emphasis on what evolved in the oil and gas industry recently and what is planned for the near future more accurately. The key is a scientific approach of cost management to stay highly competitive with positive bottom-line results and manage the arising challenges and changes adequately. “Navigating with change of directions.”

This year GOTECH will introduce the concept of Center of Excellence beside the various technical sessions, where distinguished topics will be under focus through interactive discussions to encourage deployment of best practices.

Business Centers will include special sessions on the human capabilities, the market demand and the soft view assessment of the industry and the way forward for a healthy business.

We are pleased this year by highly ranked representation of high-profile leaders to give their view about what is anticipated next, in view of prevailing uncertainties and the dynamics of risks mitigation.

I invite you to use and contribute to all what is offered at GOTECH. Your presence is valuable, and your interaction, for sure, will count to make GOTECH the conference of choice due to its differentiated emphasis on technology deployment, innovation, and best practice, and nurturing the talent in our industry.
