The first Seapex Beijing Chapter gathering was held evening of November 21st at the Kempinski Hotel in Beijing, and was a great success. Over 80 participants from NOCs, IOCs, embassies, and service companies attended. Seapex has three excellent guest speakers (IHS, Wood Mac, and Schlumberger), each of whose talks generated lots of good interaction and questions. Seapex organization and its upcoming 2019 conference were introduced. This was followed by drinks and a fun buffet dinner. Generous sponsors included Conocophillips, Total, Chevron, Schlumberger, Roc Oil, SPE, AIPN and SEG. Also thanks to Seapex Singapore for the needed support to kick off this great event.
