Welcome to 3rd International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference (IOGCA 2020)

Upstream and downstream oil and gas industry both produce and deal with chemicals. At the same time, Chemistry and Chemicals play an important role in their operations. Drilling, well completion, well stimulation, water shut off, flow assurance, crude oil demulsification, corrosion inhibition, effluent treatment, microbiological controls, injection water treatment, enhanced oil recovery etc. 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, pout 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 3rd International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference & Exhibition (IOGCA 2020)” on 24, 25 & 26 September 2020. In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, IOGCA 2020 will be held as a Virtual Conference. Both the 1st & 2nd editions were highly successful with good growth in the number of participants, speakers and branding partners. In the 2nd Edition, 70 plus Speakers, 260 plus Delegates and 130 plus companies from various countries along with a foreign delegation from USA, China, Dubai, Germany, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Turkmenistan, Abu Dhabi etc., were present 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 2020 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 three-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 various challenges in Oil and Gas production, processing, handling and value addition through chemicals and chemistry.
