  • Global Petroleum Show expands focus and floor space

    D. M. Cohen

    A new technical conference, an expanded exhibition space of 600,000 ft and rough-and-tumble entertainment will be among the new features greeting an expected 60,000 attendees from 90 countries at the 20th Global Petroleum Show (GPS) held in Calgary, Alberta, June 10-12, 2008. The event, held biennially at Calgary’s Stampede Park, is the world’s largest oil and gas show in terms of square footage, offering a massive showcase for technological innovations, including an outdoor exhibition that lets visitors get up close and personal with life-sized oilfield equipment. Serving largely as an onshore-focused counterpoint to May’s Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, the GPS this year will again take up the 2006 show’s emphasis on heavy oil development. A new all-day course called Heavy Oil 101, held Thursday June 12, offers visitors the opportunity to tap into the expertise gained by producers of Alberta’s vast oil sands.
