Invitation to join Two Days Powerful Talks on
Upstream, Downstream, Water & Waste Water, Bio-fuels

26-27 September 2024

New Delhi

Starting at 09:00 hrs. (IST)

In any economy, one of the most crucial factors is the energy sector as it has the ability and capability to ensure sustained economic growth and development. India is currently one of the fastest growing economies in the world and energy is essential to erasing India’s development deficits and meeting its developmental needs and aspirations. Energy consumption of India has more than doubled since 2000, propelled upwards by a growing demand – soon to be the world’s largest and a period of rapid economic growth.

Under the current global scenario where carbon neutrality and renewable energy are topics of hot discussion, oil and gas are not going to lose their sheen so soon. While oil demand slowly falls with the adoption of more renewables and gas technologies, there is a need for oil companies to have insight into new technology advancement and accordingly innovate to stay competitive and keep the fuel flowing. Chemistry and Chemicals will continue to play the role of productive influencer in various processes in upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas industry. Application of chemistry and chemicals play an extensive role in hydrocarbon extraction from reservoirs and refining.

The wide range of oil field chemicals and other additives plays an important role in maximizing the productivity of existing/green and mature/brown fields. They are utilized in several diverse forms and at different stages in downstream and upstream sectors, starting from drilling, production, stimulation, EOR and finally abandonment, while in downstream these are widely used in different processes involved in refining and distribution of finished and value-added products. Value-added products are especially bestowed with the boon of advancements in techniques/technologies that have evolved in the field of chemistry and chemicals. The field of catalysis needs a special mention because it opens up new avenues as well as helps in reducing energy requirement of processes. Chemistry of crude oil and water plays an important role in most of these applications of chemicals and hence their detailed analysis and characterization will also form a part of the discussion of this conference. Evolving innovations in speciality chemicals used in oil & gas industry is one of the key reasons for an exponential growth of the sector.

We are organizing the 7th International Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference & Exhibition (IOGCA 2024) on 26-27 September 2024. The last six editions were highly successful and thriving with quite impressive growth in the number of participants, speakers, branding partners year on year, and the level and diversity of discussions. Various companies spanning the globe, from North and South America to Europe and Asia-Pacific have participated along with many branding partners. The conference was fairly represented by different segments from upstream and downstream, including users, researchers, asset owners, business facilitators, and manufacturers who have presented their findings on the cutting-edge research in these areas and highlighted their interdisciplinary relevance.

There is addition of two new dimensions to the IOGCA 2024 - Water and Bioenergy.

Both Upstream and Downstream involve large quantities of water. In fact, most of the brown oil and gas fields produce more water than hydrocarbons. Oilfields inject large volumes of water, may be 5 to 10 barrels for ever barrel of oil production enhancement. Refineries need water for different processes as well as produce wate water. Effluent as well as process waters need treatments, invented by chemicals, to make the waters  fit-for-purpose. In fact refineries are working towards zero water discharge and the technologies for this purpose need through understanding of chemistry of water and its treatment is influenced by chemistry and chemicals.

In the time to come, Ethanol will be blended to the extent of 20% with petrol, which will come from 1st and 2nd generation production methods. Biodiesel from waste oil or crops is also contributing as green fuel. Compressed Biogas (CBG) will be making a significant contribution as transportation fuels. A lot of developments are taking place in the segment of Biofuels, which involve a lot of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical & biochemical processes, and chemical engineering. Hence, discussions on them have been brought in the ambit of this conference. With India as leader of Global Biofuels Alliance, the topic deserves all the more attention and importance.

IOGCA 2024 aims to provide an unprecedented opportunity for interaction and exchange of ideas on recent innovations, advances and achievements to nurture the crosspollination in the area of chemistry, chemicals and related technologies among the end-users, industry, scientists, engineers, technologists, chemists, chemical manufacturers, eminent academicians and researchers of all stripes, shades & colour. IOGCA 2024 spans an extensive range of exciting sessions from basic research to recent innovations to field applications to field case studies. Interactive sessions among vendors and buyers will also form a key attraction of the conference.
