The 2011 International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) will be held 15­17 November in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme this year is "Technology and Operational Excellence: Keys to Sustainable Global Energy." The conference is an annual multidisciplinary event sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and SPE rotating between Asia Pacific and the Middle East. More than 60 technical sessions will focus on a diverse range of topics, such as exploration, reservoir, drilling and completions, production and development, and midstream gas, and overarching industry issues that include security, human resources, business, social challenges, and health, safety, and environment. Her Royal Highness, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand will officiate the opening of the conference and exhibition. International oil ministers, industry leaders, and governmental representatives will discuss and share their views on timely industry topics and trends, exchange expertise and experience, present state-of-theart technology and innovation, and stimulate further research of technical and business activities. Awards and recognition will be given for organizations' efforts in industry technical and business contributions, and there will be a range of integrated social activities encouraging networking and offline discussion. Executive Plenary Session An executive plenary session, "Technology and Operational Excellence-- Keys to a Sustainable Global Energy," will take place on Tuesday, focusing on meeting energy demand, new technologies, operational excellence, clean fuels and emissions, and unexploited hydrocarbons.

Janmaha, of PTTEP and Bård Krokan , of Statoil. Panelists will discuss global technology research, development, and deployment in complex formations, remote locations, and in harsh conditions, in light of heightened demand, and resource life cycles. On Thursday, "Operational Excellence: People, Processes, and Technology," will examine strategies and issues that the industry faces across the dimensions of people, processes, and technology in the pursuit of operational excellence and the highest standards of personal and process safety, integrity, and reliability. The session chairman is William Drennen III of Hess and the coordinator is Vinit Hansamuit of PTTEP Speakers are Abdulla Al . Marzooqi of Abu Dhabi National Oil, John McCreery of Bain, Fatwa Bitar of BP Indonesia, and Tom Knode of Halliburton. The last panel session, "Deep Water Challenges--Gulf of Mexico's Long Term Impact and How the Industry Can Move Forward," will provide a broad perspective on the Macondo incident by addressing the regulatory environment, identifying and mitigating operational risks, the role of human factors and technology in mitigating risks, and industry actions to improve government and public relations. Ford Brett of PetroSkills will chair and coordinate the session. Speakers are Jerry R. Schubel of Aquarium of the Pacific, Mohd Jukris Wahab of Petronas Sudan, David Stewart of Shell, and Keelan I. Adamson of Transocean. Special Events A Young Professionals Workshop will be held Monday for oil and gas professionals under the age of 35 with fewer than 10 years of industry experience in any technical discipline. University students, industry executives, young professionals, and students will discuss the future directions for young professionals in the industry, and address issues of importance to them. Monday through Wednesday, IPTC Education Days are organized as an initiative to introduce local high school students to the various disci-

plines of engineering and the industry in general. Industry professionals will share their experience with about 100 students and talk about topics of general interest and relevance to the industry. On Wednesday, a new IPTC event, the Teachers' Day, will bring together 50 teachers from the local community to learn about the energy industry. It will combine presentations from industry representatives with an exhibition tour to help teachers better understand what the industry can offer their students and their classrooms. Numerous oil and gas industry sponsors will host Education Week from Sunday through Thursday for top students in their final year of undergraduate geosciences and engineering from qualified institutions worldwide. The purpose of Education Week is to give the students an insight into the industry that they are about to join, allow them to return to their universities and colleges with a positive story to tell their fellow students, and provide opportunities for them to form new friendships and to work together on a joint activity. Excellence in Project Integration Award The IPTC's Excellence in Project Integration Award winner will be announced at the Conference Dinner and Award Presentation on Tuesday. The award recognizes the achievements by a company or companies for integration of multiple disciplines and execution for major petroleum industry projects from discovery to delivery. It is awarded upon recommendation from the IPTC Award Committee and approval of the IPTC Board of Directors. Integrated projects that are realized at more than USD 500 million, exemplify strong teamwork, solid geosciences knowledge, reservoir and production engineering acumen, determined and watchful construction, outstanding engineering practices, and effective planning, along with an active commitment to health, safety, and environment, qualify for consideration of this award.
