 OGT-2022: Towards a sustainable energy system of the future – topics of the Ashgabat forum

Creating a sustainable energy system of the future in the context of the unfolding transition to low-carbon development requires cooperation and action from all global market players, government, business and academia circles. The XXVII International Forum "Oil and Gas of Turkmenistan" – OGT 2022 is organized to further promote scientific and technical knowledge, effective models and practices in the field of exploration, development, production, transportation and processing of energy resources.

The event will take place next week – October 26-28 under the auspices of the state concerns "Turkmengas" and "Turkmenneft", the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Turkmenistan and the state corporation "Turkmengeology". The partner in the organization of the flagship industry event is the EC "Turkmen Forum" with the support of the British Company GaffneyCline.

The purpose of the OGT 2022 conference and exhibition is to strengthen international dialogue, analyze the latest trends in the global energy system and attract foreign direct investment in the oil and gas sector of Turkmenistan through raising awareness of its potential.

This year, OGT is gathering delegates in Ashgabat, while the conference will be held online in parallel. The exhibition will present the achievements and promising projects of oil and gas companies, and at the conference, government representatives, government officials, industry leaders and experts will have the opportunity to discuss and share their opinions on current topics, share knowledge, experience and innovation, propose new ideas, and stimulate further research in the field of technological and entrepreneurial activity.

The conference will open with a plenary session titled "The Future of the Energy System: New Challenges and Opportunities". Among the key issues that are submitted for consideration during the sessions of the first day: investment opportunities in the energy sector of Turkmenistan on the shelf of the Caspian Sea and on land, new gas chemical projects.

A separate topic is the development of energy projects of a new era, the transition to renewable energy generation and hydrogen technologies.
