Speaking at the curtain raiser press conference on the Conclave at GAIL's Corporate Office in Delh, Dr Ashutosh Karnatak, GAIL Director (Projects) and Chairman, Oil and Gas Conclave and Shri P K Gupta, GAIL Director (HR) emphasised the importance of the operation and maintenance aspect of the Oil and Gas Sector in terms of Health Safety and Environment related issues that each plant of Hydrocarbon Sector grapple and keeping the pedestal of accident free, smooth operation of the plant is of paramount importance.
Call to stand guard over maintenance
"While supplies of and production of the vital products of transportation of the hydrocarbon products, natural gas through cross country pipeline infrastructure, refinery and petrochemical units are maintained at the optimum level to meet the requirement of the country as a whole, smooth operation of the plants are required to be maintained by mitigating the risk of any eventuality in the operation. Hydrocarbon sector is prone to various industrial hazard during operation."

Elaborating on the changing energy scenario, he mentioned the historic stages of development of the energy supply and its impact on industry.
Elaborating further, he expressed that the first industrial revolution was a result of development of Coal- seam derived energy. In due course of time, the energy sourcing changed over to hydrocarbon followed by electricity. With India being the third largest consumer of the energy in the world, the Hon'ble minister emphasized upon bringing new and alternate energy sources like Gas hydrates in the energy supply chain.
Such conferences are platform to provide an environment for various players of the energy arena to come together and exchange ideas for scientific and technological innovation

NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 16 :
A common platform was envisaged to resolve and establish the technical ideas and practical experiences for improved interactions and knowledge sharing among E&P industries and academia. Society of Petroleum Geophysicists (SPG) India was established in 1992, with a small group of 30 Exploration Geophysicists 25 years ago at Dehradun.
SPG has made momentous progress, expanded its network by connecting E&P professionals, eminent scientists, Academic institutions and students with in country and abroad. SPG-India presently has ten Regional Chapters, including one overseas (N. America), 18 Student Chapters all over India. Its total membership has reached approximately 3000, which includes Life, Annual & Student memberships. SPG-India has held 11 International Conferences & publishes a half yearly technical journal "GEOHORIZONS".
SPG is presently affiliated to international societies "Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG)" USA, European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE) - Netherlands & Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG), Australia.
The SPG-India, publishes half yearly technical journal GEOHORIZONS, which contains technical papers, case studies and activities of the various regional and student chapters regularly.
SPG started organizing Biennial International Conference & Exposition in 1996 at Delhi and is going to organize its 12th version from 17-19 November 2017 at Jaipur.
The themes of this biennial event were always in tune with the prevailing situation in oil industry and challenges faced by it. It varied from Exploration in the 21st century toLeveraging Technologies for E&P Business for Mitigating Exploration Risks to Solutions through Technologies, Uncertainty to Possibility and the theme is "Energy through Synergy" for the current conference.
Over the years the number of delegates attending the conference has gone to manifold along with number of technical papers presented in Oral and Poster session during this biennial event. SPG began conducting Pre and Post conference Continuing Education (CE) courses which have increased from 2 to 24 over these years.
