About Latin America Assembly

Getenergy Latin America, 5-6th October 2017, Colombia – Sponsored and Supported by ANH, and sponsored by Schneider Electric

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

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 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
