The Middle East Metallurgy Corrosion & Coatings Conference (MECOC), which took place from the 21st to the 23rd of November, showcased the latest innovations and best practices related to Metallurgy Corrosion & Coatings for the Oil and Gas industry. The event gathered 300+ individuals from 60 plus companies across 30+ countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the United States of America, Europe, and Africa.
“The selection of the right material, equipment and coating play a vital role in the energy industry. It aids in heightened efficiencies, reduces corrosion and is a valuable asset to staying ahead of the competition. This conference aims to enhance communication and help exchange knowledge between the major stakeholders. While the conference enlightened end-users and operators with the latest innovations and best practices in the field, it also accelerated discussion on scientific discoveries,” said Romin Mathew, Director, Aldrich International – the organisers of the event.
An annual event, MECOC featured technologies from within the GCC and worldwide to enable Oil & Gas Producers, Power Generators, and other members of the Energy Sector to enhance and improve materials, metals, and equipment to inculcate better corrosion management practices. This year’s forum witnessed the presence of renowned Industrial giants, manufacturers, Chief Engineers of Oil producers, corrosion & coating technology providers and more to discover opportunities and find solutions for the current challenges in the industry.
The forum across all three days focused on six significant groups, including Metallurgy and Corrosion Engineers, Service Providers, Coating Professionals, Maintenance Professionals, Research and Development Scientists and Equipment Manufacturers. The key topics of discussion at the conference focused on Metallurgical Fundamentals and Techniques, Steel and Types of Steel, Non-Metallic Materials for Oil and Gas, Corrosion and Scale Inhibition and Metallic, Inorganic and Organic Coatings.
A high-net-worth technical conference with the latest innovations available in the market, MECOC not only served as a platform to connect with both regional and international experts but also focused on all aspects of production, manufacturing and processing entities in the wider world. The event presented advances in the relevant fields and supported exchanging ideas and information. This conference also served as an ideal environment to develop new collaborations and meet experts on the fields’ fundamentals, applications, and products.
