The first day of the Egypt Oil & Gas (EOG) 2nd Upstream Operational Excellence Convention, on December 2, was concluded with a series of presentations on new technologies currently being implemented in Egypt and across the world.

Attendees had the opportunity to learn about Petrojet’s gas early production facility J-T plant; the successful landing and geosteering that Schlumberger provided to Petrobel (Eni) in the Gulf of Suez reservoir using new distance to boundary tools and technologies; the implementation of reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP) in oil and gas production, by Shawcor; and the deployment of sub-sea wireless technology control system development, by Enppi.

The four presentations closed the first day of convention, which also included other two technical workshops on unconventional production and field best practices, and a strategic panel on sustainable upstream investment climate.
