Over the course of the two-day event, a strong lineup of speakers will discuss the environmental issues affecting the oil and gas industry, the programs and initiatives being implemented by petroleum companies, and the green technologies for the energy sector.

The sessions will cover a wide range of environmental topics, including wastewater treatment, alternative energy sources, carbon capture and storage, and the protection of the marine environment.
