JOGMEC Techno Forum 2013



We, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation ("JOGMEC"), are pleased to announce that the JOGMEC Techno Forum 2013 will be held in Tokyo on May 7 and 8, 2013.


Contrary to expectations, many highly advanced electronic technologies are used in the exploration and development of oil and gas. These advanced technologies are likely to be required more and more, as developments extend to natural resources located under deep seas and in other extreme environments, or for unconventional natural resources such as shale gas. Although Japanese companies in various industries have the world's most advanced innovative technologies which can be applied to development of natural resources, these technologies have yet to be used to their full potential.


It is against this backdrop that JOGMEC decided to launch a new initiative, the Promotion of Solution Providing with Innovative Technologies. Under the new initiative, JOGMEC will focus on Japanese cutting-edge, innovative technologies in different industries which have not yet been applied in the upstream sector, and then take the lead in acting as a mediator between suppliers of such innovative technologies and oil companies and/or countries which are rich in natural resources. Through the new initiative JOGMEC will contribute to the Growth Strategy that is being advanced by the Government of Japan.


At the JOGMEC Techno Forum 2013 in May, various oil companies and Japanese technology companies will join us to introduce their latest developments and future outlook, including efforts to tackle technological challenges, and expectations for Japanese innovative technologies. In addition, JOGMEC will present the new initiative in detail at the Forum.


We hope that as many companies and organizations as possible, including those that have an interest in the oil and gas industries and those that have not yet had an opportunity to work with us to date, will be able to take advantage of our new initiative as a tool to identify or expand business opportunities.

We look forward to seeing you at the JOGMEC Techno Forum 2013.
