Roberto Cimino - Vice President R&D Planning and Technology Scenario - ENI
During the phase of declining Oil prices, the O&G industry has been working hard to become more competitive, by cutting costs, streamlining project execution, focusing on most profitable assets and maintaining the emphasis on technology innovation. For all these reasons, we believe that the industry is now ready for an expansive phase as well as for driving the economic growth in the Mediterranean Basin.
Accordingly, the theme of OMC 2019 is "Expanding the Mediterranean Energy Sector: Fuelling Regional Growth", where the emphasis will be on technology and its ability to further decrease costs, improve operational efficiencies, and drive the energy transition towards a more sustainable future.
Ravenna, according to its long standing tradition, will continue to be the place where industry experts, thought leaders and authorities meet to discuss and build together a future of sustainable growth.
The proposed topics for the submission of abstracts range from exploration to more efficient production operations: natural gas continues to play a pivotal role and, for the first time, a session will be devoted to the increasingly game changing digital technology.
We hope to see you all in Ravenna for the next OMC 2019
Chairman OMC 2019 Programme Committee
