International Perforating Symposiums have been held since 2008 with the first one being in Houston. This original meeting has led to regional Perforating Symposiums in Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Bogota and Muscat.  Last year, we have held a Symposium in Galveston on the 12-14 May, and in China in October.  BP has sponsored a one day RP67 Perforating Safety Forum in Houston on the 8th of May - presentations from all these symposia and forums are available on this website.

We are pleased to announce that the first International Perforating Symposium in 2015 will be held in Amsterdam. More details below.
