Professionals in all areas of the petroleum industry have found this conference provides them with a forum to discuss various aspects of current oil and gas environmental issues with colleagues from industry, government and academia from across the U.S. and international locations. This year, we hope you will join us as a sponsor of the 26th IPEC conference in San Antonio, Texas.
The IPEC Conference began bringing professionals together to discuss ‘real-life’ solutions to environmental problems of a technical, legal and regulatory nature back in March of 1994. That focus continues today. The first conference was held in Houston, Texas with less than 100 in attendance. Just one section of a ballroom held the 60 technical presentations from a variety of industry, government and academic institutions. Today, the conference has grown to needing space for 3 or 4 concurrent technical sessions; exhibition hall, plenary session and various networking events.
Over the years, several companies have been IPEC Corporate Sponsors such as Devon, Encana, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, DeepEarth Technologies, Inc., ALLU Group, Inc., Directed Technologies Drilling, Inc., Cirrus Associates, LLC, Directional Technologies, Inc. Explorer Pipeline, Primary Natural Resources, Samson, Rosengarten, Smith & Associates, Inc., Ziltek Pty Ltd, and many others.
It is with the support of our corporate sponsors that this conference has grown to be one of the best of its type in the nation. IPEC is a highly regarded petroleum environmental conference because of its relaxed and informal approach for exchanging information among colleagues.
