Welcome to 5th International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference (IOGCA 2022)


India is gearing to enter $5 trillion economies. Energy consumption is a harbinger of growth of an economy. Globally, countries are planning in multiple ways to rearrange their energy basket, with concerted effort to shift from fossil fuels to renewables. The contribution of oil and gas will gradually shrink. The world has already stopped talking of peak oil production; rather the term “oil glut” is floating in the market. Whatever mix the future energy basket may have, hydrocarbons will have a role to play in multiple ways. India’s oil and gas production figures are standing just at the brink of double-digit of her requirement. Hence, India will always need to at least sustain the current levels of self-sufficiency in oil and gas. Science and technology will be playing a pivotal role in sustaining and improving hydrocarbon production and processing.

Upstream and downstream oil and gas industries, both produce and deal with chemicals. Chemistry and Chemicals play an important role in Drilling, Well completion, Well stimulation, Water shut off, Mercaptan scavenger, Paraffin dispersant, Paraffin inhibitor, Paraffin control agents, Fluid loss control additives, Cementing additives, flow assurance, Crude oil demulsification, Corrosion inhibition, Effluent treatment, Microbiological controls, Injection water treatment, Enhanced oil recovery, etc. All these operations make good use of chemicals in upstream oil and gas drilling and production. In downstream processes, they play role in catalysis, lubricants and greases, additives, absorption and adsorption, cleaning systems, cracking and fuel technology, heat exchange systems, sludge handling, H2S scavenging, pipeline transportation, solvents, polymers, corrosion inhibition, effluent treatment, microbiological issues, etc. Chemicals are used as an oxygen scavenger, corrosion inhibitor, biocide, demulsifier, surfactants in several operations, solvents, paraffin inhibitor and dispersant, pour point depressant, drag reducer, polyelectrolyte, defoamer, deoiler, etc. A broad range of chemicals has been developed by researchers and service providers to meet the challenges and provide new avenues. Chemistry of crude oil and water plays an important role in most of these applications of chemicals and hence their detailed analysis and characterization will also form a part of the discussion of this conference.

We are organizing the 5th International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference & Exhibition (IOGCA 2022) on 22-23 September 2022. The last 4 editions were highly successful with good growth in the number of participants, speakers and branding partners year on year. Various companies from different countries like the USA, Russia, China, Dubai, Germany, Malaysia, UK, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Turkmenistan,  Australia etc., participated along with many branding partners. The conference was fairly represented by different segments from upstream and downstream, including users, researchers, asset owners, business facilitators, and manufacturers.

IOGCA 2022 will provide an ideal platform for end-users, industry, researchers, chemical manufacturers and academic experts to share experiences in managing the challenges that can be handled by chemicals and chemistry. This two-day event will create opportunities for discussing and sharing new experiences in all aspects of chemicals and chemistry and is designed for industry professionals involved or interested in solutions for multiple challenges in Oil and Gas production, processing, handling and value addition through chemicals and chemistry.
