“As the largest drilling company in the Middle East, we are pleased to sponsor the annual 10th
edition of Offshore Jack-Up Middle East (OJME) conference, held for the first time in Abu
Dhabi. This is a very exciting time for the drilling industry here in the region. After a
protracted downturn in the offshore drilling industry, activity is ramping up significantly in
the Middle East where it is seeing the greatest and fastest return. I am looking forward to an
engaging conference with productive conversations about collaboration and growth, future
technology and sustainability in the oil field as our industry stands center stage to enable oil
and gas capacity expansion. I am also excited to showcase the growth opportunities available
in Abu Dhabi and the UAE to our industry.”
Capt. Mohamed Al Ali, Sr. VP, ADNOC L&S said that the global market for jack-up rigs
has shown strong performance this year with the Middle East driving demand and given the
rising demand for oil and gas, and increased investments in upstream activities; we are likely
to see more growth in this sector. This is an opportunity that ADNOC L&S understands, and
we are leveraging this projected growth with the recent announcement of ADNOC Offshore’s
decision to award us with a contract for 13 such vessels. I am delighted to be a speaker at this
year’s Offshore Jack Up Middle East (OJME) Conference and share this prestigious industry
platform with many esteemed peers and colleagues. I look forward to the discussions and
insights on the developments in Middle East's drilling industry and to making new
connections with industry experts.
Bijali Nair, Vice President & Regional Offshore Manager – South East Europe, Middle
East , Africa & India, Maritime, DNV said, the Middle East offshore is densely populated
with Jackup drilling rigs. Additionally, the number of non-drilling jackups, popularly referred
to as jackup barges or liftboats is increasing exponentially in the Middle East. Some of the rig
owners are finding it difficult to find the resources to run their operations. Against this
backdrop this event acts as a much-needed forum for the industry leaders to come together
and exchange technical knowledge and expertise with the objective of making the jackup
industry in the region better informed and more resilient.
Arun Pushkarna, Operations Director, Vahana Offshore told that in its tenth year of
service to the region, OJME has covered a long distance. What started off as a relatively
small gathering of professionals from the jackup industry has grown into a vibrant,
interactive, technically rich forum well attended by the who’s who of the region. The journey
of OJME has been an eventful one and the conference has sparked off many improvements in
the operational practices within the region and beyond. OJME, since its inception had a
relentless growth & today it ranks amongst the premium must-go-to events in the region
attracting Owners, Operators, Service Providers, Regulators and Managers of Jackups.
Rutger Baan, Commercial Director, GustoMSC|NOV said, this year the conference is
celebrating its 10th edition. In all the years it has been the platform to share latest knowledge
and experience with jack-ups operated in the Middle East region. This time I’m confident that
the interaction will be even better, reaching a wider group of stakeholders across the offshore
marine sector. GustoMSC is proud to be supporting this event for so many years and more
years to come. Enjoy the interaction and learning early October during OJME #10.
DNV with its extensive technical and research capability, an advisory and assurance provider
at the forefront of the energy industry has always been strongly committed to share
experience and knowledge, supporting initiatives that brings the leaders of the energy
industry together. OJME in the Middle East is definitely is one such event and DNV has been
supporting OJME since its inception because it brings together the most influential players in
the jack-up segment and seeks to bring about positive change on safety, efficiency and
environmental performance mentioned Geir Fuglerud, Vice President, Director of
Offshore Classification, DNV Maritime.
Roberto Salinas, Project Director, Friede & Goldman, Ltd. said that with recent jackup
activity and potential in the Middle East attending OJME is an opportunity to network with
industry leaders and decision makers on the latest developments and trends in the region with
respect to jackups.
OJME 2022 will also have an exhibition running in parallel showcasing the latest technology,
service providers and many more.
We look forward to have participation from the regional & global players at the conference.
