- PRESS RELEASE
The 2nd Middle East Turbomachinery Symposium (METS 2) will be held at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) in Doha, Qatar, on 18-20 March 2013, with short courses to be conducted on March 17 in conjunction with the symposium.
The inaugural edition of METS debuted in Doha in February 2011 with over 1,000 attendees and 60 exhibiting companies. Following this successful launch, METS 2 is primed to be the premier turbomachinery event in the Middle East, as it combines a world-class technical conference and international exhibition.
The METS Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC), a group comprised of highly respected engineers from both regional and international companies in the industry, is overseeing the development of the technical program for this year's symposium. Dr. Dara Childs, Director of the Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University, and Mr. Abdulaziz Al-Naimi, Manager (Joint Interest) at RasGas, jointly serve as MTAC Co-Chairs.
The technical program has been developed with end users in mind, particularly users from oil and gas, petrochemical, and power-generation industries. Delegates can choose to attend and engage in a combination of 8 short courses, 12 lectures, 8 tutorials, 8 discussion groups and 21 sessions of case studies, led by 133 accomplished speakers from around the world. The topics that will be covered include compressors, steam and gas turbines, expanders, pumps and drivers including motors, and auxiliary equipment such as couplings, bearings, gear boxes, dry gas seals, and annular seals.
The METS 2 exhibition, on the other hand, will feature 63 leading companies from the oil and gas, petrochemical, power, pumping and turbomachinery industries. The exhibitors will display full-size equipment, cutting-edge technology, and emerging industry trends. Highly-qualified technical personnel will be on hand to address the business needs of industry professionals.
The Turbomachinery Laboratory is proud to be organizing METS 2 in partnership with QP as the event offers an exciting occasion for industry leaders to share ideas, exchange technical knowledge, and to discuss ongoing industry -elated issues. Online registration for the symposium will close on 18 February 2013, after which delegates must register on-site at the QNCC.
In addition to the symposium, delegates also have the option to register for a tour of Ras Laffan Port, which was built by QP as an export facility as part of Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLC), the world's most sophisticated energy related industrial city. The tour includes a presentation in the port administration building, a question-and-answer session, and tours of the port and the industrial city. The registration deadline for the tour is 1 March 2013.
