Dear Colleagues:

Today oil and natural gasrepresent the driving fuel for two third of the energy requirements for the entire world, therefore weneed together to research for new technologies which can extend the life of these natural depleted resources. In October 18 to 20, 2016 / Istanbul-Turkey, The InternationalEnergy Foundation (IEF), under Libyan Ministry of Oil&Gas and National Oil Corporation of Libya (NOC) patronage& endorsement, is organizing TheThirteenthMediterranean Petroleum Conference and Exhibition (MPC2016) in conjunction with different national and international companies, institutes and research centers. Among them, are ICF-WASI, Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Weatherford, OMV, Blade Energy Partners, TOTAL E&P, UNDP, EGA, University of Tripoli, Wintershall, REPSOL-Libya, LPI and many others?MPC2016belongs to the well-established series of biennial conferences, specialized in oil and gas industry in the Mediterranean, that have been organizing by (IEF)andunderNational Oil Corporation of Libya(NOC)patronage, since 1991. The Organizing committee invites all experts and scientists those interested in all aspects of petroleum industry to participate to exchange ideas and views on the latest on oil and gas upstream and downstream industry.The conference will link the worlds of industry, government and academia for an outstanding exchange of applied research, technical applications, and novel solutions in the Oil & Gas Industry.MPC2016 is co-chaired with the International Congress on Fracture -The World Academy of Structural Integrity (ICF-WASI).
