Asia Pacific (Apac) countries present enormous opportunities for oil and gas companies, with some oil leaders recently announcing further expenditure for hydrocarbon production development as the region’s energy market has the highest contribution to the global energy demand. In order to produce hydrocarbons in this region, oil and gas companies must address its particular security challenges.
With this in mind, IRN is delighted to announce the launch of a platform unique in its focus, the inaugural Asia Pacific Oil & Gas Security Forum, to take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 21st-22nd May.
The Forum is the newest addition to IRN’s extensive portfolio of regional oil and gas security Summits, which are organised under the Chatham House rule, in a discrete 5* environment and with an outstanding panel of experts sharing their insights and experiences.
