Finding Solutions to the Most Critical Challenges: As the industry moves through profound change and political turmoil, the 2011 Retreat will focus on the rebalancing of relations and we will discuss how NOCs, IOCs and service companies can work together to mitigate risk, leverage technical and operational expertise and add value for a sustainable future.
Conducted Under the Chatham House Rule The NOC IOC Retreat has enjoyed a reputation as one of the very few platforms where genuine dialogue between the major industry parties can take place, because of the rigorous application of the Chatham House Rule of non-attribution throughout the event.
What Makes the Retreat Exceptional? 4 Unique insights from industry leaders in a rapidly changing market 4 Interactive and insightful debate on the opportunities in the MENA region 4 Opportunities to exchange perspectives on commercial strategies 4 Development of top level partnerships 4 Discussion on critical factors for successful NOC IOC relationships
New for 2011 Building on CWCâ€™s long-established relations in the Middle East and North Africa, the 2011 Retreat will look at the profound rebalancing that is taking place in this most dynamic of regions. We will explore the enhanced role that is opening up for NOCs and partners in MENA against the background of political and economic reform.
