The European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy (DG XVII) will be holding its Fifth European Union Hydrocarbons Symposium on "The strategic importance of oil and gas technology", in Edinburgh, UK, on 26-28 November 1996.

The symposium, which is being organized on behalf of the Commission by the Petroleum Science and Technology Institute (PSTI) and the Association of Dutch Suppliers in the Oil and Gas Industry (IRO), will provide a forum for discussion between key policy makers in industry and government, technology developers, oil operating companies, financial institutions, politicians and the media.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular will benefit from the opportunity to meet like-minded companies from across Europe, with the view to building working relationships and identifying potential partners for future JOULE/THERMIE-funded projects.

The symposium will present the latest technologies for the exploration, production and transport of oil and gas which have been developed in the EU Member States. The technologies presented will cover the wide range of R&D and demonstration projects which have received support under the Community's JOULE/THERMIE programme in the field of non-nuclear energy.

There will also be an opening plenary session, parallel technical sessions, a poster session, a technology exhibition and a round table session entitled "European oil and gas technology: A strategy for survival".

In addition, a workshop on the aims of THERMIE and how to apply for funding will be held on 25 November 1996. This will be of particular relevance to companies considering applying for assistance under the THERMIE section of the JOULE/THERMIE programme.
