RefComm is headed to Latin America in 2014

Hold on to your feathers and masks, folks! In 2014, Coking.com and CatCracking.com is setting its sights on Rio de Janeiro – land of Carnival, World Cup 2014, and the 2016 Summer Olympics.

This will be our 2nd Latin America RefComm and is tentatively planned for the week of 29 September – 3 October, 2014.  At our 1st Latin America Conference in 2009, we had an attendance of approximately 175 delegates from multiple regional companies including a strong showing from Petrobras.  The 2014 Latin America RefComm (Training and Conference) has been enthusiastically embraced by YPF, Shell, Axion, Ecopetrol, PDVSA, Petrobras, and many regional vendor companies.  In addition to excellent program/exhibition content, we will again offer real time simultaneous translation during the conference in three languages: Portuguese, Spanish, and English.

We all know that Latin America is a region blessed with abundant hydrocarbon resources but challenged with political instability (read more).  Rio de Janeiro is ideally located for the RefComm because it tends to be stable and low risk.  The locale is not bad either!  Watch your inbox and our websites for updated information.  Much more to come!
