Highlights From the 2017 Global Petroleum Show
DFT® Inc. recently had the opportunity to attend the 49th annual Global Petroleum Show. Held at Stampede Park in Calgary, Alberta, from June 13-15, this exciting event provided a forum for energy and petroleum companies from all over the world to showcase their products and services.
Every year, the conference displays and demonstrates new technologies, provides opportunities for attendees to network with fellow industry professionals across the entire supply chain, and conducts various educational seminars and conferences.
This year, more than 50,000 energy professionals from 90 countries attended, with over 1,000 exhibitors set up to showcase new innovations.
As part of the show’s comprehensive Energy Dialogues series, DFT® had the chance to hear from numerous industry thought leaders who addressed some of the sector’s toughest challenges.
During the Low Carbon Innovation Forum, speakers discussed innovative ways petroleum companies can stay ahead of the curve while navigating new challenges. With a focus on revitalizing old industries to meet the new demands and expectations of today’s low-carbon economy, this forum offered ideas for meaningful development and growth in this shifting landscape.
The team also particularly enjoyed the Energy Leaders Forum, in which industry leaders explored ways to inform and support government policy and regulations pertaining to the oil industry. Highlighting the importance of balancing traditional and renewable energy forms, this event provided valuable insight into the best ways to prepare for a future centered on renewable resources.
Finally, at the NextShale Forum, our team had the chance to learn more about the future of shale gas; speakers discussed the sector’s various challenges and advancements while guiding companies on how to remain competitive on a global scale. With the shale industry on the precipice of resurgence, it’s critical for industry players to understand the best ways to navigate the demand for lower prices while meeting specific countries’ environmental regulations and fulfilling international commitments.
