Following the success of the first Iraq Mega Projects conference last year, which offered access to high level decision-makers of Iraq’s Mega Projects, CWC today announced dates for the second conference which takes place in Istanbul, Turkey on 18-20 October 2011.
Major changes happened in 2010 with hundreds of contracts signed allowing work to begin on supporting oil field infrastructure that will eventually see the capacity of oil output reach 4.4 million bpd by 2015.
This year’s conference will focus on the progress of those contracts awarded, the challenges faced as well as presenting further projects to be awarded to further the production of the twelve oilfields and the three gas fields Akkas, Mansuriyah and Siba.
Conference Producer Shane White commented “Iraq Mega Projects will bring together operators, ministry representatives, local councils, service providers and other Iraqi experts who together can help develop Iraq as a major oil producer.”
The agenda focuses on oil field case study sessions highlighted by the contractors, recent developments of the gas fields, water projects drilling activates, infrastructure growth, and corporate social responsibility. In addition a one day seminar will discuss developing the value chain which will be led by senior Iraqi professionals.
