In line with IPA Convention theme this year, a new Technology Session program has been created with discussions around the role that technology has in supporting the competitiveness of our industry. Digital technology plays a major role in other industries in increasing efficiency and reducing risks in operations. Similarly, it can also play a crucial role in the oil and gas industry, from reducing exploration risks to the optimization of field operations through myriads of techniques available as part of the digital transformation of the industry.

At the same time, government regulations will need to keep up with the increasing pace of new technology development in order to maximize the value of these innovations. These sessions will foster the discussions between technology providers, technology users, and government, with the ultimate goal of driving the competitiveness of Indonesia's oil and gas industry.

First Technology Session starts on Wednesday, 2nd May 2018 at 12:45 PM – 14:00 PM, located at Assembly Hall.


Presentations start immediately after lunch on Wednesday, 2nd May 2018 at 1:00 PM, in six parallel rooms located at the Lower Level area of the Jakarta Convention Center.  The total of 199 oral papers will emphasize the achievements and the breakthroughs of the latest development in the industry, which will be delivered in 36 technical sessions and 71 Poster sessions that will be presented at the Lower Lobby hall.


The Exhibition will be accessible throughout the conference, showcasing the latest industry technology and best practices over a wide range of disciplines and services.
