Full Agenda

Tuesday, June 18, 2013
London
Royal Society of Chemistry

Below ground, Russia and the FSU provide fantastic opportunuties, ranging from the effectively unexplored Arctic offshore of Russia, to the opportunities to explore onshore with new technologies, and to achieve enhanced production in existing fields via the application of existing technologies. So much to do and so many places to do it!

Above ground, so many issues, so many barriers, so many frustrations!

In this Forum, we will address three questions:

  1. Where are the best opportunities?
  2. What are the problems?
  3. Can we operate and work there?

Please join us on June 18th.
