Omanexpo to host forum in Abu Dhabi.

Muscat: Organised to highlight emerging technologies in oil recovery methods and showcase state-of-the-art oil-related services and equipment in a comprehensive platform, the 7th edition of the Middle East Artificial Lift Forum (MEALF) will take place from February 5 to 7, 2013 at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

In a recent signing, MEALF has, for the fifth time, appointed pioneer and leading exhibitions and conferences organizer Omanexpo to manage and organise the event.

MEALF, the only one of its kind in the Middle East region and backed by the region's largest oil companies, will feature a one-day training workshop, a two-day forum and exhibition. The workshop presentations will be conducted in an interactive setting accompanying practical exercises focusing on best practices and new-technology cases.

Among the trainers for the workshop are General Electric Company for Electrical Submersible Pumps, Weatherford for Sucker Rod Technologies and Baker Hughes for the Artificial Lift Selection.

Over 25 technical specialists are expected to deliver presentations on topics like gas-lift and ESP optimisation, ESP/PCP diagnosis, control and optimization, power supply quality and harmonics, and contracting methods.

Big companies like Kuwait Oil Company (Kuwait), Delta Doha Corporation (Qatar), Zenith Oilfield Technology (UK), Artificial Lift company (UAE), Dover Middle East LLC (Oman) and Novomet Group of Companies (UAE) have already confirmed their participation as exhibitors.

MEALF is expecting more than 50 representative companies from close to 18 countries worldwide.

MEALF is a major bi-annual exhibition and forum that specialises on the mounting use of artificial lift technologies in oil production operations throughout the Middle East region.

Since its inaugural edition in 2002, it has served as the launch pad for new players into the region and a platform for knowledge sharing and discourse about industry developments. It has also been key to the successful promotion of the growth and development of the industry, locally and regionally.

The MEALF Technical Committee is composed of high-ranking industry professionals and experts from Kuwait Oil Company, Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO), Qatar Petroleum, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), Saudi Aramco, Al Khorayef Petroleum Company, Baker Hughes Centrilift, Daleel Petroleum, Kuwait Gulf Oil Company, Lufkin Egypt, Occidental of Oman, Inc., Schlumberger, Tatweer Petroleum, Weatherford Oil Tool Middle East Ltd., and Wood Group ESP, Inc.
