The 25th Anniversary International Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference - KIOGE 2017 was held on 4-5 October in Almaty, Kazakhstan. More than 250 companies from 25 countries participated in this significant event. Industry specialists note that for a quarter of a century the KIOGE event has become an autumn tradition within the oil and gas community and express their huge gratitude to the organizers for the opportunity to discuss the pressing issues of the oil and gas industry together.
KIOGE is an excellent platform to hold meetings with potential partners and share experience with specialists from different countries. One of the important topics for discussion this year was the state of the extractive sector of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the prospects for its development.
Anuar Zhaksybekov, Chairman of the Board of Embamunaigas, presented his vision for the future of the country’s extracti ve industry. Embamunaigas has a 95-year history and therefore vast experience both in theory and in practice of geological research, exploration and production of hydrocarbon raw materials. The Head of the company believes that it is necessary to reduce production costs and increase the operating factor of wells by optimizing the operation of the equipment. The implementation of the transport logistics project allowed Embamunaigas to reduce fuel consumption by 20%. In addition, since 2015 the company is paying special attention to training and internships for its employees in leading foreign specialized universities.
Another topical issue discussed at KIOGE 2017 was to develop an environmentally friendly world economy. More and more attention is paid to alternative sources of energy. According to experts by 2050 about 70% of cars will be electric. The cost of lithium-ion batteries can be reduced by 5 times. The demand for electricity will increase to 45%. And it will be possible to observe a temporary decline in oil production. Why temporary? Because experts believe that with a competent approach this respite will allow us to find new directions for the development of the oil and gas sector. Mikhail Novikov, General Director of EAGE in Russia and CIS countries, offers to explore non-traditional resources, for example, to study the oil shale rock and its properties.
