Subject: International Workshop on Natural Gas Hydrates
Greetings from IIT Madras!
We, at IIT Madras, plans to conduct an International Workshop on Natural Gas hydrates – Exploration and Production, from 7 to 9th August 2012. The venue will be at IIT Madras.
In the area of natural gas hydrate, there had been no efforts in the country, by any academic institution, to bring together the people from different background, including geophysicists, engineers, scientists, etc., to aid the learning process. There is a wide research gap in the country in the area of properties of hydrates that are vital and closely related to production challenges. We believe that the Petroleum Engineering program of IIT Madras can take lead in forging academia-industry linkages towards scientific capacity building in this area.
For this course, experts from abroad (from UT, Austin, Colorado School of Mines, Texas A&M University, Schlumberger-Doll Research Centre, etc.) are invited to deliver specialist lectures and have confirmed their participation. We, also, will bring out the lecture notes and will get it published. We hope this forum will set the perfect platform to take further in the right direction and will stay committed on this aspect.
In this context, we request you to circulate the attached leaflet among your employees and network in industry and encourage them to register for this important event. We expect an overwhelming response in terms of registration of employees from your organization.
Please see attached leaflet for more detail. Leaflet Gas Hydrate Workshop (1)
