Commenting ahead of the event EIC Regional Director for North & Central America Amanda Duhon, said: “I'm looking forward to another successful EIC Connect Oil & Gas USA. Since we first delivered EIC Connect Oil & Gas USA in October 2017, much has happened across the oil and gas sector.
“From operators optimising operations and centralising project delivery, EPCs driving consolidation, to supply chain and OEMs innovating and driving down costs; we are indeed in a new energy market. This innovation of the oil and gas sector culture provides a great opportunity for collaboration across the value chain to identify gaps and address challenges to drive technology, solve problems, and remain competitive.”
The event will close with a high-level panel of speakers from Kiewit, LNG Limited, Marathon Oil Corporation, Worley among others, addressing the gaps and challenges across the upstream, downstream and, in particular, a focus on the midstream sector which provides the entire oil and gas market, to operate efficiently.
