February 27th - March 1st, Houston, Texas

Important notice:

Due to unexpected circumstances, BP will not be able to host the Joint PCA-MIMOSA Forum. We have made alternative arrangements as are shown below and we thank both IBM and Chevron for quickly responding to our last minute request. We regret any confusion caused by this change.

The SIG working sessions and Conference taking place Monday through Wednesday will be hosted by IBM at their Houston offices on the west side of downtown Houston. The address is:

2 Riverway, Houston, TX 77056
2nd Floor

Chevron will host the owner/operator Forum on Thursday March 1 at their offices in downtown Houston. Those who have not yet registered for this event need to do so immediately as Chevron will require at-least 3 days to clear registrants for their security system. The address is:

1400 Smith St.
Meeting location HOU140/40066.
