(EnergyAsia, March 30 2012, Friday) — Global Pacific & Partners has released its programme for the 17th Asia Oil Week , which includes the 21st Asia Petroleum Strategy Briefing and the 17th Asia Upstream Conference to be held at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore on June 25 to 27 2012.

The event begins with the 21st Asia Petroleum Strategy Briefing on Monday, June 25, the longest running strategy briefing held in and on Asia within the global upstream industry. It provides an in-depth examination of the competitive upstream oil and gas-LNG strategies in Asian exploration and development, with diagnosis of portfolios held by corporate oil, governments and national oil companies, whilst tracking competitors and state players across Southeast Asia, Australia and the Pacific area, China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and in frontier areas like Timor Leste and Sri Lanka.

The Strategy Briefing is presented by Duncan Clarke, chairman and CEO of Global Pacific & Partners, a leading global strategist, speaker and author on the fast-changing world of the oil and gas industry.

The 17th Asia Upstream 2012 conference is a landmark event for Asia’s exploration industry, featuring more than 30 top-level presentations by speakers from across Asia and the world, for delegates from the oil majors, independents, government and national oil companies.

Participants take this opportunity to interface, network and negotiate deals.

This year’s event will discuss Asia’s emerging frontiers and upstream potential over an intensive three-day programme. It will feature presentations by Talisman Energy, Premier Oil, Roc Oil, Mubadala Oil & Gas, Japex, Cairn India, KrisEnergy, Oil Search and Petromin PNG Holdings as well government representatives from the Philippines, New Zealand, Timor Leste, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Bangladesh.

Dr Clarke said: “Asia’s oil and gas game is moving into new territories, with established producer countries and corporate players eyeing new strategies, and re-discovered frontiers across vast regions, from Pakistan to New Zealand.

“New frontiers and oil/gas potential beckon in Asia’s hydrocarbons game, while independents have opened new plays and state oil companies have global strategies, while licensing agencies and ministries seek exploration dollars.”
