With respect to the conflict in Ukraine, we are unable to accept delegates from Russia or Belarus. Neither are we able to accept papers with authors or co-authors from institutions based in these countries. We will continue to monitor the situation with respect to official U.S. government sanctions and restrictions, as well as endeavoring to remain consistent with the global scientific and cultural communities’ response to the ongoing conflict.

The ASME Onshore Petroleum Technology Conference (OPTC), to be held September 20–21, 2022 in Houston, TX, helps professionals in the onshore oil and gas value chain who want to 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. OPTC is unlike other conferences in that it brings to together a variety of stakeholders relevant to the onshore petroleum segment instead of specializing on a single niche subject.

Attendees at the conference will hear from expert speakers regarding engineering, operations, regulatory, safety, reliability and other important issues. OPTC will serve as a platform to exchange best practice, raise questions and inspire solutions to industry challenges. Experts will attend from across the onshore petroleum value chain including surface facilities, processing, liquefaction, fractionation, refining, transportation and logistics.

The target audience is Operators, Service Companies, Software Companies, Engineering Companies and Suppliers. Academia will play a significant role as well. OPTC will seek participation from Governing and Regulatory bodies where relevant. 

Conference events will include presentations ranging from keynote speakers, technical papers, panel discussions, training seminars and networking opportunities.
