Conference Team is led by Dr. Nick Coles
Nick's years of international experience in the field of specialized conferences and scientific research, developed an efficient and highly professional level of SOGAT event performance.
From the theme structure - recognized by industry experts, to specialized social network atmosphere that each of Dome's
conferences create, SOGAT
provides an advantage that no competitor can follow.

has acted as a consultant for IIR
(recently acquired by Informa), Environmental Matters
, GeoMedia Group

, the CWC Group
etc and currently acts as Director - Conferences & Exhibitions for Dome Exhibitions
based in Abu Dhabi in the Middle East where he
has been responsible for initiating several new events including SOGAT series supported by ADNOC and leading IOC's and NOC's.
has in a short time established itself as the meeting place in the Middle East that focuses on the Gas Conditioning issues that need to be developed in order to sweeten the gas for industrial development and infrastructure usage.
Several overseas contributions have likened SOGAT
to such well established events as the Laurence Reid meeting for example.
"I truly believe that SOGAT
plays an important part in realizing the hydrocarbon assets here in the region, previously thought to be too difficult to ascertain and will continue to do so as the associated technologies continue to be developed and enhance the capabilities of delivering sweet gas in a cost effective manner."
