The important advantage of the “OIL & GAS” / MIOGE exhibition, according to the experts in the field, was the extended technical program for professionals which was organized, this year, in conference rooms built directly in the exhibition area. The technical program included thematic events, from geological exploration and the development of the oil and gas fields, to educational, career and communication issues in the oil and gas industry.

This congress is the international leader of the oil and gas events in the Russian Federation; this year, more than 100 speakers and 1,000 delegates in the oil and gas industry from the Russian Federation and from abroad, from the governmental sector and representing professional associations, attended this event.
