Surgutneftegaz Annual Incentive Trip for Production Managers

Since 2013, Oil&Gas Eurasia has organized the annual incentive (award) trip for top production managers of Surgutneftegaz to the United States.

Oil&Gas Eurasia has hosted this elite group in Texas, Oklahoma, California and Nevada. Each of our programs have been tailored to specific technology interests of the group.

We have visited ESP manufacturing plants in Oklahoma, visited well sites in the Permian Basin (West Texas); toured well sites in Bakersfield, California, met with innovators at Stanford University and learned how industrial and environmental concerns are managed in California’s offshore industry. Companies supporting these visits have included Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, NOV, GE, Lufkin Industries, Applied Physics, Western Valve, as well as independent operators in West Texas and South Texas.

OTC Delegation

In May 2017, Oil&Gas Eurasia was chosen to organize a Russian delegation to the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) with the support of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and U.S. industry support organizations.

OTC is the largest oil and gas event in the world, featuring 2,300 exhibitors and attracting upwards of 80,000 visitors over its four-day run. Oil&Gas Eurasia’s six-day trip included visits in Houston to the OTC Exhibition, Baker Hughes’ Center for Technology Innovation, NOV Downhole Tools and Rig Solutions manufacturing plant, a day-long tour of gas condensate and gas liquids production in the Eagle Ford oilfield in South Texas, together with discussion of environmental impact of hydrocarbon production. Delegates also enjoyed a Houston Astro’s baseball game and an overnight in SanAntonio after the Eagleford tour.

Wholesale Market for Electricity in the United States

Oil&Gas Eurasia has organized business meetings for a daughter company of a Gazprom-related company involved in the Russian wholesale electricity market.

One group visited government and private company offices in New York state for a program on how electricity prices are formed in the U.S., how electricity futures are traded. Another group visited Washington D.C. for a similar program that included also a meeting on Capitol Hill and a tour of an electrical power station near Philadelphia.
