The ninth International Oil & Gas Conference and the 16th International Exhibition of Oil and Gas Industries will take place Sept. 21 and 22 at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw.

The conference is an important forum for government officials and businesses to exchange views and share experience. The hot topics discussed during the conference draw prominent politicians, economists, academics and key figures in the oil and gas industry. Every year, conference participants debate the present and the future of the fuel sector, and its problems and plans regarding its development. The conference debates are attended by government officials, members of parliament and managers of major fuel corporations.

Guests of this year’s oil & gas conference will include: Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Waldemar Pawlak; Sławomir Majman, head of the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ); Dariusz Jacek Krawiec, the chairman of the management board and the director general of PKN Orlen SA, the largest fuel corporation in Poland; Paweł Olechnowicz, the chairman of the management board of Lotos SA, Poland’s second largest fuel corporation; Konrad Jaskóła, chairman of the management board, Polimex Mostostal SA; Marek Kossowski, chairman of the management board, Fasing Energia Sp. z o.o.; Jerzy Majchrzak, director of the Polish Chamber of Chemical Industry. They will be joined by a number of deputies from lower-house committees on the economy, Treasury and innovation and new technology.

The topics of the conference sessions will be as follows: A strategy for the Polish oil and gas sector—political parties and their programs before the parliamentary elections; Natural gas in the energy industry; Refineries: regulation, privatization, competition; The biofuel market—the challenge of increasing requirements; Searching for new gas—first assessments; Energy security—Poland and new pipelines.

This year’s oil & gas conference and exhibition will for the first time be attended by a large delegation from Canada. Delegates from eight major Canadian enterprises which specialize in oil and gas exploration and extraction will be present at a stall organized by the Canadian embassy’s trade office. Last year, Canada produced over 180 billion cubic meters of natural gas, making it the third largest producer of natural gas in the world. Most natural gas in Canada comes from conventional reserves in Alberta province. Unconventional natural gas reserves include deposits of tight gas, coal-bed methane and shale gas in Alberta and British Columbia. Unconventional natural gas accounts for an estimated 30 percent of total natural gas production in Canada, which means that the country is the world’s second largest producer of unconventional gas after the United States.
