Wärtsilä Oil and Gas Calendar
May 7, 2013 Leave a comment
Wärtsilä calendar of oil and gas exploration, drilling, and technology events for the next twelve months.
The shipping calendar is generating a lot of interest, and I am following it up with one for the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry is a much bigger industry than shipping, and there are far more conferences and events. While the shipping conference calendar is unique (I haven’t come across another on the Internet), there are some oil & gas-related conference calendars. I have used the US Society of Petroleum Engineers calendar and the Oil & Gas Journal listings as the main source of listings for collating my oil & gas calendar, plus the usual suspects like Informa and so on. Of course, if you are a conference organisor and I haven’t included your event, please send me a comment with the website location. I would also like to thank the nice people at Wärtsilä for sponsoring the oil & gas calendar.
Best Golf Course at an Oil & Gas Conference?
As you might expect there are a lot of oil conferences in Houston, the Middle East and Brazil, but I wanted to share with you the annual conference for the American Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE). This takes place in Coeur d’Alene, which I assumed was in France. In fact, Coeur d’Alene is in Idaho, USA. Coeur d’Alene is a purpose built resort, with the hotel being a modernist interpretation of a German Rhine Schloss. As well as the conference, there is a champagne cruise on the lake and a golf tournament. It is the golf course that caught my eye. The par three 14th green floats in the lake. In fact, the floating green is computer controlled and changes position everyday. The Coeur d’Alene has been voted America’s Most Beautiful Golf Course and if the American Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers need a speaker on the shipping at Coeur d’Alene, I’m your man (and I don’t even play golf)!
