2016 CAPA Petroleum and Petrochemical Technical Symposium

DATE: Friday, November 4, 2016

VENUE: Marathon Oil Tower, 5555 San Felipe, Houston TX 77056

Dear CAPA Members and Friends:

Chinese American Petroleum Association is pleased to announce the 2016 Petroleum and Petrochemical Technical Symposium, which is to be held on Friday, November 4, 2016. The Southwest Section of the Chinese American Chemical Society (SW-CACS) and the Society of Petroleum Resources Economists (SPRE) will co-organize the downstream / petrochemical and Petroleum Economics sessions with CAPA, respectively. The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) will continue to sponsor the student paper contest.

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

The symposium will focus on the theme of “Navigating and Repositioning for the Future”. The oil and gas industry is going through another round of rebalancing. The challenging oil price environment has caused significant reduction in the work force and slowdown in asset development, especially in North America. Commitment of global leaders to climate change issues will likely lead to more stringent regulations and create impact on resource development worldwide. What will be the new “norms” for the O&G industry? How should we adapt to this new operational, financial, and social environment, while continuing to deploy advanced technologies in the field? How do we turn challenges and obligations into opportunities to grow our capabilities for long term sustainable development? What are some of the key enablers critical for our future success? We’d like to explore these topics in this year’s technical symposium with fellow members, technical experts and leaders in our industry.

We encourage you to submit abstracts relevant to the symposium theme. Student members are encouraged to submit their papers to the Student Paper Contest session and take this opportunity to share their research results as well as to improve their presentation skills.

Student paper contest - All student papers will be oral presentations in English. Awards will be given at the end of the session ($500 – 1st place; $300 – 2nd place; $200 – 3rd place).
