Operational efficiency and safety are of paramount importance for companies across all sectors. Only when organisations decide to build long-term stability and sustainability into their operational strategies and invest into safety culture, workforce competence and operational readiness, will they be equipped to capitalize on upswings in a measured and profitable way.

With these challenges in mind, key players are meeting at OPEX MENA 2018, organised under the Patronage of H.E. Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Minister of Oil, co-hosted by the National Oil & Gas Authority (NOGA) and with Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) as principal sponsor.

On the 26th and 27th March, participants discussed best practices for creating competitive advantage and maximizing profitability of their assets. This is the fifth edition of the OPEX MENA conference and it included presentations by leading operators Bapco, Petro Rabigh, S-Chem, Saudi Aramco, Sipchem, Satorp and Tasnee as well as cutting-edge consultants and service providers such as DuPont Sustainable Solutions, Honeywell, Solomon Associates, Dekra, Schneider Electric and Wood.

The conference was preceded by the Solomon Associates Workshop that took place on the 25th March and covered the topic of “RAM: Fundamentals, Benchmarking & Performance Improvement”
