KIOGE 2016, a unique venue for annual meeting of representatives of the global oil and gas network, took place in Almaty on October 5-6.
Maccaferri participated at KIOGE conference, the major event in the oil and gas industry of Kazakhstan and the entire Caspian Region.
Gas and oil lines are often situated in complex topographical and hydrogeological conditions. Topographic features determine the demand for sustainable engineering solutions for field site protection.
The following solutions offered by Maccaferri were discussed during the session:
- Measures for prevention of flooding
- Feasibility of using the reinforced soil structures in oil and gas projects.
- Slope stabilization and protection against surface erosion at sites of pipeline laying
- Rockfall protection and protection against landslides.
The audience - consisting of the major contractor companies - was mostly interested in Maccaferri's implemented and ongoing projects in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Including the West Prorva oil field of Embamunaigas JSC in Atyrau region where Reno mattresses and MacMat R were used for reinforcement of upstream slope of the bund wall against wash-out.
Intercommunication and mutual interest of the conference participants have proved the relevance of Maccaferri's engineering solutions in the construction and maintenance of oil and gas fields. A goal is to extend partnerships with industry customers, and increase the number of projects that are associated more efficiency and technologically advanced solutions: they help to minimize the risk of unforeseen situations and provide for continuous oil and gas transportation.
