Transforming the economic potential of oil and gas in Latin America through localisation, education and training

Getenergy Latin America & Caribbean Localisation Forum, 3rd and 4th  October 2017, Colombia  

Building upon established relationships from the first four Getenergy Americas events, and looking at new opportunities across the rest of the continent, Getenergy Latin America seeks to transform the economic potential of oil, gas and renewal energy in Latin America through localisation, education and training.

Governments, Operators, Service Companies and the training and education communities are actively seeking to engage with international partners to help them build local capacity for energy markets across the entire continent.

In Colombia, the signing of the 2016 FARC Peace Agreement has provided a secure platform to develop international partnerships and investment. Ecopetrol aims to increase production by 2020, with more licensing auctions scheduled and steps taken to liberalise the market.

Sessions will be open discussions on how to improve local workforce and supply chain capacity, and how to maximise the economic potential of hydrocarbons for national development in the region. Country focused workshops will outline; how governments, operators, educators and the supply chain are working together to achieve their goals in a continuing low price environment, the current and future skills gaps, and what is required from the international community.

Getenergy Latin America forum discussions will focus on:

  • Improving local workforce and supply chain capacity
  • Strategies to maximise the economic potential of hydrocarbons for national development in the region
  • Examples of regional success in a longer term low price environment
  • How industry leaders can successfully transfer their skills and knowledge to new generations
  • How to work closely with local communities
  • How to close the gap between education and training in the O&G industry

Identifying the current opportunities to localise the oil and gas industry in Mexico and create better alignment between industry and education

Getenergy Mexico Localisation Forum,  9th October 2017, Palacio de Minería, Ciudad de México

Getenergy is delighted to return to Mexico at the beautiful Palacio de Mineria in Mexico City where our workshop will continue to drive discussions between the government, operators and academia on how to meet urgent local content and workforce demands as the Energy Reform evolves. Three years on from the momentous Energy Reform, SENER has been progressively changing the industry and implementing international standards through partnership agreements.

Our third edition in Getenergy Mexico will be an opportunity to finalise those partnerships and agreements under current leadership .

We will also reveal new education and training opportunities and further your understanding of future market trends ahead of the upcoming bid rounds.

In this forum purely focused on Mexico, we will.

  • Share successful case studies on how education and industry can work together to raise the level of talent in Mexico
  • Hear from the companies and institutions that have been successful in establishing international partnerships to strengthen local content and the transfer of knowledge and skills to Mexico over the last 3 years
  • Showcase the opportunities generated through the Energy Reform
  • Exemplify how, and which, other countries can help Mexico to continue raising international standards
  • Discuss how universities and industry can better align themselves in order to develop a better economy as well as in-country value
