I’m glad GNPC accepted to work with you to successfully deliver the first West Africa Well Engineering Forum (WAWEF 2020). As the keynote speaker, I noted with great pleasure the level of participation from the various IOC’s, NOC’s and Service companies operating in the oil and gas industry in the West African sub-region. The technical sessions provided a unique platform for knowledge sharing and a deep dive into current innovations in the well engineering and completions arena. GNPC participants were particularly impressed with the networking opportunities that WAWEF 2020 presented. You guys did a really good job. Hope to see you at WAWEF 2021.
Downhole Products has been a sponsor of the RDCR and KDR Well Engineering Forums in Russia and Kazakhstan for the past two years and out of all the conferences DHP attend, I find these well engineering conferences the most beneficial for our company with the excellent presentation content, operator attendees and focused delegate list. Exhibiting at the first West African Well Engineering Forum (WAWEF 2020) in Accra on February 20th further enhanced the commitment DHP will show to the team at TMG Worldwide going forward. WAWEF was a complete success and I am looking forward to next year already.
WAWEF 2020 was our companies first time attending and sponsoring a TMG Worldwide forum. We were pleasantly surprised to find it was a great setting to meeting numerous senior delegates from global operators and service companies. It’s very rare to meet so many key decision makers at one event. The forum discussions were focused on new and existing technologies, which can help improve efficiencies within West Africa region. All presentations were very informative and created a basis for good topical debate during the Q&A sessions and during the Gala Reception. TMG managed to create a formal but yet comfortable environment which led to good networking opportunities for all delegates. We look forward to attending next year’s forum and continuing to build on the new opportunities WAWEF 2020 has created for our company.
It was a pleasure to receive an invitation and attend the inaugural WAWEF 2020. The conference facilities provided an excellent platform to deliver a broad range of interesting, pertinent, varied and relevant topics currently affecting the upstream sector. The associated technical discussions and lively Q&A were also invaluable in supporting and making the conference an overall positive, worthwhile experience.
The wide ranging attendance that included GNPC, Operators, drilling contractors and various international and local service companies supporting the regional industry, added value to the discussions and excellent networking opportunities over the course of the day. Anyone involved with well construction in the region should give consideration to joining future WAWEF events.
