The National Technologies in Turkish Petroleum Industry Meeting 2020 (PEMT’20), hosted by TPAO with the support of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, was held in Istanbul on 10 February.

The event, which opened with speeches by Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Dönmez, and by TPAO CEO&President and TP-OTC General Manager Melih Han Bilgin, was well-attended by representatives of the petroleum and natural gas exploration and production sector, as well as domestic suppliers. As part of the event, a panel was organised to discuss the “Turkish Hydrocarbon Sector with respect to National Energy”, followed by workshops on the goods and services used in the sector, held in six different sessions.

Bringing together domestic suppliers and industrial representatives in line with the common goal of TPAO and TP-OTC, which is to increase the use of indigenous services and products, PEMT’20 was considered to be an important step forward in terms of new collaborations.
