Dear CAPA Members and Friends,

Chinese American Petroleum Association (CAPA) sincerely invites you to attend the 2019 Annual Conference, which will be held on October 11, 2019.  This year the conference will focus on the theme of “The Future of Energy: the Trend, the Impact, and the Adaptation”. 

        过去一年里石油行业机遇与挑战并存。随着国际油价震荡回暖,石油行业的生命力得到了进一步的发展,从探明石油储量、产量到消费量全部实现增长。与此同时,全球能源结构发生明显变化。随着可再生能源、清洁能源,和核电等新能源在能源结构升级中的占比持续稳步的提升,其发展不可小觑,对传统能源,尤其是煤炭造成了重大影响。在能源多元化,碳排放控制日趋严格,以及国际能源生产加工交易和消费的多重刺激下,石油行业发展迎来了新的挑战,同时也带来了前所未有的机遇。们如何能够紧跟行业升级的步伐,从知识,技能,认知水平,能源行业数字化转型,和对新产业结构的了解和预测方面做好充分的准备,以迎接新能源时代的转型,成为对每个能源行业人员的巨大挑战 

The oil and gas industry is facing challenges and opportunities as the global energy market evolves.  The industry needs to meet rising energy demand while at the same time to reduce carbon emissions.  With steady and increasing supply of alternative energy such as biofuels, solar, and wind power, the traditional industry focusing on conventional and unconventional resources has been experiencing the impacts.  Digital transformation, thanks to machine learning and artificial intelligence, also has been contributing to more efficient processes and new business strategies.  As a result, how the industry adapts or reforms itself to embrace alternative energy and new technology has become a major issue.  This changing energy landscape also provides great opportunities for individuals with an open-mind and positive altitude and appropriate skill sets to thrive in the new era.

The conference venue is the Marathon Conference Center, 5555 San Felipe, Houston TX 77056, courtesy of the continuing and generous support from Marathon Oil Corporation.
