The US, Canada and Russia interest in the untapped oil in the Arctic Circle is heating up with all looking to exploit the reserves nestled within. With one third of Russia located in the Arctic Circle, regional oil and gas companies are well positioned to benefit from this find. The 2012 NG O&G Summit has been specifically designed to cover the most pressing issues faced by executives in the Russian oil and gas sector today.
GDS International Summits provide the forward-thinking executives with a client-focused platform from which to assess emerging trends and strategies that are proving critical to organisational effectiveness in 2012.
The summit’s programme combines high-level roundtable discussions with next generation technology solutions that have been carefully selected to address core challenges faced by decision makers in the sector.
Few of the hot topics to be discussed at the forthcoming event include…

According to Ben Williams, Summit Director for the event…
“Leading decision makers from Shell, BP, Lukoil, Rosneft, and Gazprom are attending to outline strategies and solutions to solve immediate challenges when approaching harsh, icy and relatively unknown productive environments. More than 60 of the attendees arriving at the Park Inn Hotel in St Petersburg will be top-level executives from operators and they will be keen to discuss operations in the Arctic Circle and the Yamal. They will also be looking to see how they can strengthen HSE (health, safety and environmental) practices in the region and how innovative technology can help improve company operations.”
Executives will be given the opportunity to network and participate in a variety of comprehensive workshops and peer-led panel discussions that cover key industry issues. In attendance will be a selection of the industry’s most prominent thought-leaders who will be contributing to the direction of the summit through a series of focused panel discussions.
Included within this summit’s senior delegation are Ilya Mandrik, VP, Lukoil; Thomas Quigley, VP Yamal Oil Upstream, TNK-BP; Alexander Terentiev, VP Drilling, GazpromNeft; Chris Mawyer, VP HSE & Engineering, BP and Sergey Khafizov, First Deputy Director, GazpromNeft NTC.
The summit has been specifically tailored to prepare the forward-thinking executive for any challenges that the industry’s rapidly evolving landscape may present. Drawing on experiences and discussing industry-specific topics, the summit will securely lay the foundations for 2012 and beyond.
