Inaugurated in 1994, the GEO exhibition is the premier showcase of oil & gas exploration technology and services in the Middle East, attracting NOCs, IOCs and major operating companies. Regular high profile international exhibitors include supermajors Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell and Total and service industry giants BGP, CGG, Halliburton, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Schlumberger and Weatherford. A host of specialist suppliers and distributors, numerous new entries to the Middle East market and large national groups from North America and the UK complement this line up.
