Speakers from Element, along with experts from Baker Hughes, Statoil and Total, will provide critical insights into the role thermoplastics; elastomers; and composite materials and components will play in the very latest oilfield applications.
Rod Martin, Element’s Executive Vice President, Oil and Gas, comments: “This event is a unique opportunity for industry experts to debate current trends in the oilfield industry and the engineering demands of exploration and production in increasingly hostile environments. Our biennial conference is an internationally recognized thought leadership platform that will continue to grow in influence as Element expands its presence within the global Oil & Gas sector.”
Over 250 delegates have registered their attendance from industry giants such as Chevron, Dupont, Haliburton, Petrobras, Shell and Subsea 7 among others.
