Brunei’s Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) recently partnered SPE International to host a workshop that highlights the importance of exploring strategies for optimization and enhanced recovery for oil and gas assets.
The two-day workshop launched by Deputy Minister of Energy, Manpower and Industry Dato Seri Paduka Hj Matsatejo Sokiaw gathered more than 70 oil and gas professionals from various organisations in eight countries including Russia and Malaysia.
The deputy minister in his opening remarks called on all stakeholders to realize the full potential of the energy sector’s contribution towards sustainable economic diversification efforts and encouraged young professionals to step up to the challenge posed in the industry.
He also welcomed local and international training bodies to establish their facilities in Brunei, and promote the nation as a centre of training excellence for recovery technologies and deep-water oil well developments.
