In 2016 the Regional Association of Oil, Gas and Biofuels Companies in Latin America and the Caribbean (ARPEL) and Y-TEC, organized in Argentina a high-level multi-stakeholder encounter to discuss how innovative and technological solutions may represent a fundamental cornerstone to sustain competitive advantages in a challenging context urging to provide cheaper, safer and cleaner energy.The Argentina meeting recognized that ARPEL was in an excellent position to take the lead in promoting cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean through an innovation & technology virtual platform, gathering all the stakeholders: operators (end users), technology providers, universities, R & D centers and start-up’s as well as professional associations and government agencies (local or international).Following this initiative, the Mexican Petroleum Institute (IMP) and ARPEL will join efforts to develop the “First Conference on Innovation and Technology in the Oil and Gas Industry in Latin America and the Caribbean” on 16th & 17th October in Mexico City. The Conference will present the latest innovations and technological solutions developed to answer key issues of the Latin American and the Caribbean oil and gas industry, from upstream to downstream operations, including cross-cutting subjects such as energy efficiency, safety and environment. The event will also be the venue at which the Innov@arpel virtual platform will be launched.
