Iraq, including the Kurdistan Region, boasts the world's fifth-largest proven crude oil reserves, standing at 145 billion barrels, which represents 17% of the Middle East's proved reserves and 8% of global reserves. As the second-largest crude oil producer in OPEC, following Saudi Arabia, Iraq witnesses various types of waste resulting from oil and gas production activities. These wastes encompass emission of polluted gasses, oil and sludge, chemicals, disposal of molecular sieves and catalysts, as well as general waste. The volume of waste generated depends on the extent of production and drilling activities, as well as the petroleum and gas industries. While some of these materials are inherently hazardous, effective management can help reduce their environmental impact. Building upon the success of the previous two conferences on petroleum, the organizers, namely Koya University, University of Basrah, Missouri University of Science and Technology, and the President Jalal Talabani Foundation, have decided to continue this significant series by hosting the 3rd International Conference on Petroleum: Waste Management in the Oil and Gas Industry at Koya University in 2024. This event receives support from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, both from the federal government of Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq. The conference aims to offer a platform for international participants, including academics, researchers, and industrial experts, to establish meaningful connections with organizations and professionals in this promising region. It serves as an avenue to foster research collaborations and training partnerships with Koya University and other educational institutions in the area.
