welcome to 6th international oil & gas chemistry, chemicals and additives conference (IOGCA 2023)

India is the fastest growing major economy in the world and is all set to become $5 trillion economy in next five years. Energy consumption is a harbinger of growth of an economy. Moving from brown to green energy is the direction of the future. Globally, countries are planning in multiple ways to rearrange their energy basket, with concerted effort to shift from fossil fuels to renewable. A transition to cleaner forms of energy has already begun in many countries, and the contribution of oil & 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 industry both produce and use chemicals. Chemistry and Chemicals play an important role in upstream Oil & Gas Drilling, Cementation, Well Completion, Production, Well Work over/Intervention/Stimulation, IOR, Secondary Recovery, Enhanced/Tertiary Oil Recovery including MEOR etc. while in downstream the chemicals are widely used in different processes involved in refining and distribution of finished and value-added products. All these operations make broad and good use of chemicals. A wide range of chemicals has been developed by researchers and service providers to meet the challenges and provide new avenues. However, still a big push is required for developing efficient, cost effective, environment friendly and high quality chemicals with the greatest emphasis on challenges and corresponding solutions. Chemistry of crude oil and water plays an important role in most of these applications of chemicals and hence their detailed analysis and characterization also need extensive deliberations.

We are organizing the 6th International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference & Exhibition (IOGCA 2023) on 12-13 September 2023. The last 5 editions were highly successful and had quite impressive growth in the number of participants, speakers, branding partners year on year basis, and the level and diversity of discussions has been gratifying for all the participants. Various companies spanning the globe, from North and South America to Europe and Asia-Pacific have 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 2023 will provide an ideal platform with right mix of subjects for end-users, industry, scientist, researchers, chemists, chemical manufacturers, chemical and process engineers, and academic specialists to discuss the current issues and future opportunities in the industry and exchange experiences thereby increasing the understanding of upcoming trends, strategies and technologies in managing the challenges that can be handled by chemicals and chemistry. This meticulously designed two-day event will create opportunities for the participants to evolve their ideas and cogitation as they listen to a well-crafted panel discussion along with thought-provoking speaker sessions in all aspects of chemicals and chemistry. The conference is devised for industry professionals involved or interested in solutions for multiple challenges in Oil and Gas production, processing, refining, handling and value addition through chemicals and chemistry.
