EGYPS2017 Eyes to Generate Business


The Egypt Petroleum Show is co-organized between dmg events the organizer of Gastech in Asia, GPS in North America, and ADIPEC in Abu Dhabi, and ACG-ITF one of the leading exhibition companies in Egypt. EGYPS 2017 is the first and only oil and gas event of its kind taking place under the Patronage of His Excellency President of the Arab Republic of Egypt Abdel Fattah El Sisi.

“The event has so far received a tremendous response across the whole of Africa and Europe, following the discovery of the supergiant Zohr field offshore Egypt and is being billed as ‘The gateway to Egypt’s new oil and gas opportunities’. This has generated huge amount of interest among both local and international exhibitors,” said Salman AbouHamzeh, event director.

Generating business

The event is fully supported by the Ministry of Petroleum & Mineral Resources and His Excellency Tarek El Molla, the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of the Arab Republic of Egypt, who is himself the Chairperson of the event.

The exhibition floor is spread across three halls and is selling out fast with over 60 leading players from the oil and gas industry having confirmed their participation. Some of the confirmed exhibitors include NOCs such as EGAS, EGPC, Ganope, ECHEM, MIDOR; IOCs such as ENI, BP, ExxonMobil, Apache, Edison; service providers such as Schlumberger (Gold Sponsor), Halliburton (Silver Sponsor), Baker Hughes and Weatherford.

EGYPS has also attracted international participation from various countries such as DNV GL and Jotun Paints from Norway, Tubacex, S.A. and TubosReunidos from Spain. The South Korean firms of Elyon Industry Co and Hanshin Indus Co will also be present.

The event will see a number of country pavilions from the United Kingdom, Italy, China, UAE, and India.

Technical Conference

EGYPS will have a strong and strategic conference that will see 28 technical conference sessions taking place across three days. Over 100 technical expert speakers are already confirmed (9 sessions per day, 4 speakers per session). The technical sessions cover 10 technical categories (e.g. upstream, midstream, downstream).

The Technical Conference is supported by 63 technical committee members from over 26 companies who have reviewed over 600 abstracts from 42 countries during the selection process.

Unique features

EGYPS will host unique features such as Women in Energy, Petroleum Club and the Graduate Program.

The EGYPS 2017 Women in Energy Conference will facilitate and propel the discussion to create an action plan for driving more opportunities for female engineers and professionals in the Egyptian and North African energy sector.

“The need to strategically drive gender parity in the global energy sector is critical and pressing,” said Claire Pallen, conference director. Pallen added: “The conference will celebrate the active and growing role of women within the oil and gas sector. Dedicated panel discussions; live on stage interviews and formal presentations will take a look at the lives and careers of women in upstream, midstream and downstream strategic and technical positions and the opportunities that lay ahead.”

Ms Amira El Mazni, Vice Chairman for Gas Regulatory Affairs, Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) is the official Ambassador for Women in Energy.

Another unique feature for EGYPS 2017, sponsored by ExxonMobil, is the Petroleum Club, known as the EGYPS Petroleum Club. This is an exclusive membership for oil and gas executives, providing a private environment for industry leaders to strengthen existing connections and forge new ones.

The EGYPS Graduate Program is a fantastic opportunity for both students and graduates in disciplines which lend themselves to the oil and gas sector. The Graduate Program will provide three valuable days of career advice, guidance, and training. Experts will be on hand to provide valuable training and knowledge sessions, which will help to make attendees stronger candidates for future employment.
