This year’s Global Petroleum Show was held June 11-13 in Calgary, Canada and II-VI Marlow was thrilled to be among the 1,000 highly advanced exhibitors and 51,000 attendees of this leading energy event. As the largest North American Energy show, it provides an opportunity for manufacturers, industry executives, and service companies to network and exchange ideas that drive innovation and advancement in the Canadian petroleum market. The 2019 GPS showcased energy exhibitors and technical experts from all over the world and featured segmented exhibit hall and education areas dedicated to manufacturers from the USA, China, Africa, and Korea.

During the event, the II-VI Marlow team was busy! We were creating new leads and relationships as well as networking with companies and prospects that have expressed interest in the EverGen PowerStrap Generator at past shows like the ISA. We were able to introduce the PowerStrap to many Canadian energy companies and academic/government officials - we are excited to continue to grow these relationships.

2019 GPS educational sessions and presentations addressed many critical issues facing the oil and gas industry.. Various organizations and industry experts gave speeches supporting Legislation C-48 and C-69 which focuses on reducing restrictions on pipelines and carbon tax in North America. We expect to hear more on this new legislation in the near future as we learn more about its impact. Additional topics covered included Global Outlook: Transitioning Towards the Future; Oil & Gas 4.0: Disruptive Innovation and Futureproofing the Business Model; and Focus on Canada: The World’s Most Responsible Producer.



“The Canadian oil and gas industry has an amazing story to tell,” says Alex Pourbaix, President & CEO, Cenovus Energy. “We have world-leading environmental and regulatory practices and strong relationships with Indigenous communities who are working as partners with us to develop Canada’s energy resources. But we need to do a better job of spreading the word about this great work. The Global Petroleum Show provides an opportunity to showcase these best practices and to encourage discussions about how we can collaborate to achieve even greater success.” (source: 2019 GPS June 7, 2019 press release)
