One thought on “Insights into the Oil and Gas Industry

  1. It is good to create such kind of seminars so that the Engineers can get a chance to become more aware about the present real scenario the Oil and Gas industry. The various highly skilled speakers who took part in this would have shared their real experience which will definitely help our future human resources in developing their skills and will also get a exposure.
