3rd OGEO WORKSHOP:Utilizing opportunities Maximising the benefits

After two successful workshops at ESA in Frascati, please join us in Sept. 2012 in Perth, Australia for the 3rd workshop on Earth Observation for the Oil & Gas industry.

Themes for the 1 day event will include but are not limited to: Environment / MetOcean / Geomatics / Infrastructure and will highlight the potential and best practise of using Earth Observation data and derived products for the Oil & Gas industry.

The workshop is open to members of the oil and gas industry, service providers and researchers involved in Earth Observation and related geo-information technologies.
