The Noia Oil & Gas Conference 2018, Redefining Oil: The Time is Now, officially concluded Thursday after three days of important discussion about the oil & gas industry. The 34th annual edition of the conference was held at the St. John’s Convention Centre.
“The caliber of speakers and the in-depth discussions provided exceptional value for conference delegates and the feedback received has been extremely positive,” said Charlene Johnson, Noia CEO. “A wide variety of discussions took place on important topics to our industry. The conference also provided delegates and Noia members with opportunities to network and form new partnerships to help further the growth of our industry.”
This year the conference added three technical sessions for the first time which provided the participants the opportunity to explore the topics of deepwater, Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, and marginal fields and standardization. As well, a Business-to-Business Matchmaking Program was also initiated and a conference app was available for delegates.
“A consistent theme of the week was the need for certainty and clarity with respect to the federal regulations which govern our industry,” continued Johnson. “The future of our industry depends upon that certainty and clarity so it can attract investment, conduct exploration, and grow an already valuable and important industry. Our members and conference delegates want Canada and our industry to be globally competitive. This can be accomplished while also ensuring appropriate safety and environmental rigour.”
“To inform all Canadians about our industry and the importance of ensuring it is able to continue its momentum, an awareness and education campaign began today. Imagine the Potential shares the exciting story of the Newfoundland and Labrador oil and gas industry and asks us all to consider our future with a prosperous oil and gas industry providing significant jobs and economic benefits to our province and our country,” concluded Charlene Johnson. “I encourage everyone to visit www.imaginethepotential.ca to learn more, become a supporter and share our story.”
The Noia Oil & Gas Conference is Canada’s flagship offshore oil & gas industry information event, attracting global oil & gas industry leaders as both speakers and delegates.
The Noia Oil & Gas Conference 2019 will be held June 17-19 at the St. John’s Convention Centre.
