About OPTC

Presented by the Petroleum Division, ASME's Onshore Petroleum Technology Conference (OPTC) aims to help professionals in the onshore oil and gas value chain obtain access to cutting edge technical knowledge, and insights from fellow professionals on a broad range of technologies.  The conference intends to facilitate the learning and discussion of important issues in order to improve the safety, reliability, environmental and performance of stakeholders. 

What Can Attendees Expect to Learn from OPTC?

  • Learn from Industry Peers:
    • OPTC will provide an effective platform to disseminate relevant information and learnings for the petroleum value chain, with the hope to perform with higher levels of safety and reliability.  Participants will have the ability to share key learnings, and the audience will be able to adopt best practices from other parts of the value chain tare not regularly exposed.  For CER the OPTC conference will provide a forum where the agency and the industry can converse about critical issues and the impact of regulations.
  • Learn from Government Entities about current events and new regulations:
    • One of the key objectives of Onshore Petroleum Technology Conference, is to facilitate how the petroleum industry obtains and maintains its license to operate.  As the energy transition is taking place, there will be a shift of the type and quantity of hydrocarbon based products and the new technologies employed.  This will require regulators to be able to closely follow trends and prepare for these factors by learning from one another.  It also gives the industry an opportunity to fully understand new regulations and how to best comply.
  • Learn about new business technologies / Canada:
    • The success of the petroleum industry will be largely based on its ability to adopt and implement new technologies safely.  This will also have a knock-on effect on how assets are operated and maintained. We are trying to make OPTC a premier event in promoting the best technologies and ideas and this is where CER can learn about how to prepare for the future. Developments in one part of the petroleum industry can and will have a ripple effect on other parts. OPTC believes it can add value by highlighting these issues so that the onshore industry is better prepared.
