Chairperson's Foreword

Rina Rudd

Welcome to the IPA Convex!

This has been the year like no other. It started with a pandemic nobody saw coming, followed by record-breaking low oil price, the global recession and the accelerated energy transition. The quadruple qualms. In the span of 12 months, we went from thriving to surviving mode. Once again, we are dealing with a crisis. Like the past ones, we adapt, we adjust, we carry on.

Last year, the IPA Convex too adapted. When Covid-19 was declared as a global pandemic, albeit the uncertainties, the IPA took the initiatives to cancel the 44th IPA Convex and hold the Digital Technical Conference 2020. The technical papers which have been the trademark of the IPA Convex for decades were presented virtually. A total of 100 papers were presented and the event was attended by 2.451 participants from more than 20 countries worldwide. The IPAโ€™s Technical Program Committee set the high standard of being agile in the midst of a crisis.

This year, the IPA Convex continues to adapt, adjust, and carry on. After a careful consideration, the 45th IPA Convention and Exhibition 2021 will be held virtually on 1-3 September 2021.

While the future is not ours to see, it is always ours to envision. Hence the theme of “Realizing Indonesiaโ€™s Energy Vision Post Pandemic”.

The 45th IPA Convex 2021 will have panel discussions, special sessions and technical presentations on the future landscape of the oil and gas industry in Indonesia. It will envision the state of the industry beyond the quadruple qualms. The exhibition will enter a new borderless territory: the virtual floorplan. There will be no limits on the square footage of the exhibition booth. The exhibition will have a global reach, with audiences from across the globe being only a click away. It will have the virtual networking experience, also with a global reach.

On behalf of the 45th IPA Convex Committee, please allow me to extend an invitation to all of you. Please join us at the 45th IPA Convex 2020 to contribute and participate actively in the event, whether you are exhibiting, speaking, sponsoring, and attending the convention. Please join us at the highly anticipated event of the oil and gas industry. We ensure your best virtual Convention and Exhibition experience.

Look forward to seeing you in the 45th IPA Convex!
