Our goal in ARPEL is to give a strong boost to innovation as we consider it an increasingly important aspect to improve operational and management efficiency, and the competitiveness of the sector, and thus contribute to the sustainable development of our societies.

To this end, the Association developed the virtual platform Innov@arpel that promotes interaction between technology solutions providers (R&D centers, universities, suppliers of goods and services) and operating companies in the energy sector, especially oil and gas companies.

Innov@arpel brings supply and demand for innovation and technology closer from anywhere in the world. In addition, it is a new communication and networking channel to disseminate the latest developments and innovations, whether related to technology or management issues.

One of the services of the platform is the ability to build alliances between companies and/or other relevant players, this being another space to provide technical support to both ARPEL member companies and other users.

The development of the platform was sponsored by Schlumberger and Spectrum, both ARPEL member companies.

Through a corporate account, Innov@arpel users have access to all the functionalities:
