OGWA is a biennial international exhibition and conference that brings together local and international oil and gas companies from the GCC, technology and service providers, equipment suppliers, and other companies directly serving the industry’s requirements. It is a platform for discussing the latest developments and directions of the industry, as well as for trade and business opportunities among the local and international oil and gas companies.
Launched in 1998, it has since been under the patronage of the Ministry of Oil & Gas and has consistently received the support of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), Oman LNG, and many other leading oil and gas companies.
OGWA was granted "UFI-Approved Event" status by UFI-The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry in 2010. It is recognized as one of the biggest and most important energy events in the Middle East region.
