Expert delegates and executives of the region work in cooperation in the Technical Committees and Working Groups, forming the engine of the Association to carry forward its strategic lines.
Created in 2008.
In the context of the socio-economic, political and regulatory scenario of the energy market drivers, the difficulty to access resources and the great dynamics of existing business associations, this Committee assesses the challenges and promotes opportunities for the development of upstream business in the region.
From another perspective, the Committee discusses new technologies and develops best management practices with the goal of continuously improving the sectors’ operational performance.
It also addresses cross-cutting themes, such as environmental, social and occupational issues as they impact on the exploration and production operations and performance.
