PCIC Middle East consolidates the cross-border dialogue between end-users, EPCs and manufacturers.
The Petroleum and Chemical Industry Conference (PCIC) Middle East is just around the corner with the very latest expert insights into safety, cyber security and related critical standards, slated for 28 February and 1 March.
In its 5th edition, PCIC Middle East consolidates the cross-border dialogue between end-users, EPCs and manufacturers, capitalising on new experiences and critical know-how in electrical and instrumentation applications, and automation.
“When we included the automation expertise into the technical programme, we presumed that automation experts would in priority register for automation-related sessions. To our surprise, we realised that the majority of electrical experts register for automation sessions and vice-versa”, says Jean Charles Guilhem from PCIC.
For the PCIC, the cross-border dialogue is the premise to facilitate and accelerate innovation in times of unstable market environments and strict cost-saving programmes. In the conference sessions, technical excellence from the petrochemical industry is shared through examples from the field. The lessons learned from the field are discussed during the sessions in an instructive way and informally during various networking opportunities.
The accession in the industry of new generations, especially young female engineers, is heartily acknowledged for the 5th PCIC Middle East. The first-ever invited keynote speaker, Ghada Matar Ali of ADCO (Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Petroleum Operations), will describe the perspective of a young electrical engineer, including the opportunities and path to success.
PCIC Middle East was launched in Abu Dhabi in 2012 as a regional sister event to PCIC Europe. The conference is a platform for the exchange of experience in the oil and gas, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, covering all aspects of the upstream and downstream activities.
