“As proud partners of various regional oil and gas companies, we will continue to drive value within their organisations and advise them on how leveraging leading technologies can pave the way to better decision making and resource optimisation. The 19th edition of ADIPEC also gives us the opportunity to be part of important dialogue on the dynamic regional industry landscape and how we can contribute.”
