Shape the Future of Venezuela's Oil & Gas Industry

We are proud to have hosted the first Venezuela’s Oil & Gas Summit, which took place on 9 & 10 December 2019 Houston, USA, gathering more than 100 professionals in the oil and gas industry who are looking at strategies to maximise the country’s hydrocarbon potential. The Summit brought together top experts in Venezuela’s oil and gas industry and representatives from the internationally recognised Government of Juan Guaidó to discuss the opportunities and next strategies to develop the country’s potential and ensure the next chapter will maximise the benefits for the whole population.

Over two full days of high level panel discussions, in – depth presentations and roundtable discussions, participants had the opportunity to discuss key topics such as: identifiying the full geology potential; infrastructure rehabilitation and reservoir optimization; the financing and investment required to develop the industry; the important new hydrocarbon law to attract investment and other strategic opportunities in the oil and gas sector.

The Summit provided a full panorama of Venezuela’s potential, current and future challenges but also how to overcome these and future scenarios for the full development of the energy sector in country. The potential of Venezuela’s energy sector is enormous and will play a pivotal role in providing new investment and opportunities for its citizens and businesses. The event will return the 8 & 9 December 2020, in Houston.
