The 2016 Oil, Gas and Chemicals Filtration & Separations Conference and Expo in Houston, Texas is scheduled from May 9 – 11 at the Houston Marriott Westchase. The dates of the conference were intentionally set to immediately follow the Offshore Technology Conference. In the ever increasing demand for energy and hydrocarbon-based products, process separation plays a critical role in enabling operations to run at higher capacities with low operational cost and reduced environmental impact. This conference will gather presentations on a variety of separation methods available to the industry; from filters and coalescers to membranes and cyclones, and many more.
Anyone involved in the oil and gas or chemical processing industry are encouraged to attend. Specialists and process engineers looking to understand specific separation methodologies, research and development scientists who want to present their innovations and young engineers looking for a primer in this exceptionally important area would all benefit from the knowledge being presented. The conference will include not only talks on technologies, but also on key subject areas such as, filtration, coalescing, produced water treatment and natural gas processing as well as a variety of other relative topics. The conference and expo will focus on both mechanical and chemical means to promote process separations. The conference will be preceded by specialized training courses and accompanied by industry leading experts as plenary speakers and technical session presenters. This conference is primarily technical; however this year the conference will have an expo pavilion. The Expo will allow for a select number of technology and service suppliers to show their new products and services. There is a fee to attend the conference and presentations, but expo only badges are available at no cost but advanced registration is required.
The venue is conveniently located in energy corridor of Houston, a city that is the heart of the hydrocarbon and chemical processing world. This conference will help engineers, technicians and managers to understand best-in-class practices for their filtration and separation questions, and help them to build their professional network to include some of the foremost authorities in the world on these processes.
A dynamic conference leadership team has been selected from various companies and industry experts. The objective is to assemble an exciting and educational program that includes several industry leaders along with the latest technical presentations in the field. This year the conference will also feature a Q & A session, student and academics poster completion, and a unique initiative in the form of presentations related to the latest technological innovations in the field.
Information about the technical program and the exhibits will be available early 2016.
