Submission Guideline

A proper review of your paper proposal requires that it contain adequate information on which to make a judgement.  The suggested limit of 225 - 450 words should not be constraining if the paper proposal is limited to the following factual highlights.

  • Objective/Scope: Outline the objective and/or scope of the proposed paper. If the paper is a review paper, carefully state the extent of the coverage.
  • Methods, Procedures, Process: Briefly explain your overall approach, including your methods, procedures, and process.
  • Results, Observations, and Conclusions: Describe the results, observations, and conclusions of the proposed paper.
  • Novel/Additive Information: Please explain how this paper will present novel (new) or additive information to the existing body of literature that can be of benefit to and/or add to the state of knowledge in the petroleum industry.

The paper proposal should have the necessary clearance before it is submitted to OTC Asia 2024.
