ICOGET2020 with theme “Evolving Technologies and Digitalization: Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Oil and Gas Production” intends to address main issues related to the enhancement of oil and natural gas production for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. It aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and industry experts to exchange and discuss the most recent innovations and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted for the development of oil and natural gas fields.

For that, all honorable authors with accepted abstracts are invited to submit full paper addressing state-of-the-art research and development in the below areas. Guidelines for online submission and other information are available HERE. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceeding. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscript for publication in a special issue in the Journal of petroleum science and engineering (Q1IF: 2.886) and the Journal of Petroleum Exploration and Production Technology (Q3, IF: 1.1). The certificate of participation will be distributed to all presenters during the event.
