NEFTEGAZ in Moscow provides food for thought for experts in the international oil and gas industries

Dec 14 2018 Read 1033 Times

When the top decision makers in the Russian oil and gas industries meet for the most important and leading industry event in Moscow from 15 to 18 April 2019, to the tune of 600 international exhibitors from the areas of oil and gas extraction and processing, LNG processing, oil and gas transport and storage, machinery and plants for the petrochemical industry, measuring technology, control systems, safety systems, environmental control and HSE will showcase their technological innovations. NEFTEGAZ has been rated among the global top-ten oil and gas trade fairs since 1978 and provides impulses for experts with a comprehensive programme of side events comprising conferences, technology seminars and workshops.

Exhibitor registrations for NEFTEGAZ have been in full swing for months now. Household names from Russia such as TRANSNEFT PSJC, Tatneft PSJC, NKMZ-Group LTD., Chelpipe Group and MTK Group, from Germany such as VEGA Grieshaber KG and KANEX Krohne-Anlagen-Export GmbH or from China such as RG Petro Machinery Group Co. Ltd., Yantei Jereh Oilfield Services Group Co. Ltd. and NEWAY VALVE Co. Ltd. have already confirmed their participation. NEFTEGAZ 2018 saw 552 exhibitors from 27 countries showcase their product highlights. The event was attended by some 22,550 trade visitors – including 40% first-time visitors and 93% experts.

The growth experienced in the Russian oil and gas sectors as well as the outstanding economic standing of Russia’s energy economy are excellent conditions for NEFTEGAZ 2019. The trade fair provides international enterprises with access to attractive markets as well as with a ideal business platform for networking, exchange of experiences with sector experts and gathering information on new technologies as well as state-of-the-art equipment for the oil and gas industry. 70% of Russia’s exports are accounted for by the energy sector. Some 11.2 million barrels are produced in Russia per day (bpd); this corresponds to a total of 12.2% of global production. 8.6 million bpd (12.7% of global production) go into exports. From January to April 2018 German-Russian foreign trade rose by a total of 23%. Germany and Russia are already speaking of a “Digitalisation à la russe” and announcing joint ventures. The increasingly strong economic relations between Germany and Russia are also evidenced by the Baltic Sea pipeline Nord Stream 2, through which Russian natural gas is to flow from St. Petersburg to the German coast from November next year.

2019 will again see Messe Düsseldorf organise a German Pavilion. Participating companies profit from attractive special terms and conditions. Furthermore, “Made in Germany” enjoys an excellent reputation in the Russian industry – reason enough for many exhibitors to fly the German flag. The corporate joint pavilion will be supported by the German Engineering Federation (Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagen – VDMA).

NEFTEGAZ 2019 is organised by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, Messe Düsseldorf Moscow OOO and their local partner AO EXPOCENTRE. Held in parallel with NEFTEGAZ at the centrally located fairgrounds will be the National Oil & Gas Forum as well as the ELEKTRO trade fair. These three industry highlights held in one place provide trade visitors with valuable synergies and opportunities to network with experts from business and political circles. The organiser of the Oil & Gas Forum – acting as a patron of NEFTEGAZ at the same time – is the Russian Energy Ministry. Official support for the trade fair also comes care of the Russian Ministry for Industry and Commerce as well as of the Russian Chamber of Foreign Trade.
