PETEX 2018: A Renewed Optimism in Oil and Gas
PETEX, the biennial meeting of the Petroleum Society of Great Britain, took place in London 27-29 November 2018, back in its original home in Olympia, West Kensington, instead of the more cavernous space of the Docklands Excel Centre, where the last couple of events were held.
Whether it was the change in location or the upbeat title of the conference –‘A Renewed Optimism’ – there was definitely a very different atmosphere in the air compared to the 2016 event – or even similar events just a year ago. With over 3,000 attendees, more than 100 exhibitors and some 200 , this year’s event was also one of the biggest PETEX’s yet.
