Saudi Aramco's Quest For Technology Solutions

11th August 2011

The 2011 Saudi Aramco EXPEC ARC Technology Quest symposium is due to take place on 10th – 12th October in Aberdeen.

Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest integrated petroleum company, is hosting an invitation-only symposium bringing together the world’s top scientists and researchers to discuss opportunities with Saudi Aramco in the development of breakthrough upstream technologies.

Leading technologists from around the globe will gather for a unique opportunity to meet with representatives from Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC Advanced Research Centre (ARC) and to collaborate during the conceptual/research stages of technology development by submitting proposals that meet highly potent upstream technology challenges.

The invitation only event, hosted by the Aramco Overseas Company Ltd. is the 3rd of its kind, with previous quests being held in Houston, Texas in 2007 & 2009 both of which were hugely successful. In 2009 more than 70 requests for proposals were extended to candidates.

Research domains for the quest include:

Computational modelling technology, Geology technology, Production technology, Reservoir engineering technology and Drilling technology.

Neopartners Ltd has strong capability in the Production Technology domain and will attend the event in October to discuss various collaborative solutions to challenges noted in the 2011 technology quest.

Details of this year’s quest can be found here

The deadline for proposal submission is 16th September 2011
