Organized by the Arab Association of Petroleum Professionals (AAPP) and Maarefah Energy and Advisory and Technical Committees, the IODC 2019 will gather industry leaders, technical experts and engineers for two days of discussions on regional and international offshore developments, with an emphasis on stakeholder commitment to energy and the environment.

Key conference topics will include: Offshore Opportunities in the MENA region, the Role of Technology and Alternative Solutions in Offshore, Logistics and Supply Chain Challenges in the Offshore Environment, Shipping Business – Current Challenges and Opportunities, amongst others.

WOC CEO Paul Holthus will address the challenges facing offshore oil and gas as exploration and production in marine areas that host an increasingly complex matrix of multiple uses. This creates the need and opportunity to engage with other industries to identify and address potential conflicts and synergies in use, tackle cumulative impacts to the marine ecosystem, develop shared solutions, and interact with other stakeholders. The presentation will explore the potential to develop a multi-industry alliance for leadership, collaboration and action on maritime sustainable development in the Gulf Region.
