November 2016Oil Terminal 2016 was the 11th Strategic Congress on Crude Oil, LPG and Petroleum products Trading and Transportation, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia from 24th - 25th November 2016. This is a leading industry event attracting over 400 delegates worldwide and inclusive of more than 30 specialised exhibitors.
Over the course of the 2 days there were opportunities to network with key industry contacts from a wide selection of countries from around the globe, all that have a strong interest and connection with the Russian oil and gas industry.
Dunlop Oil & Marine are proud to be associated with this prestigious event as their Gold sponsor for the second consecutive year and representing Dunlop Oil & Marine this year was; Kam Zandiyeh – General Manager, Jacques Berghorst – Sales & Marketing Manager, Steve Hoyle – Regional Sales Manager and Erwin Fijnaut – Agent for Russia for Dunlop Oil & Marine.
Kam Zandiyeh was privileged to be approached by the organisers to deliver a presentation during one of their technical sessions. The 20 minute presentation ‘An overview of Marine Hose Standards and challenging Offloading Applications’ was received well by delegates that attended.
Steve Hoyle said: “We have already seen large investment in Russia, specifically in relation to GMPHOM hoses and specialised hoses such as API 17K and LPG. We have been successful in winning a number of contracts in Russia during 2016 and we continue to penetrate this market through all avenues open to us.”
“Oil Terminals provides us with excellent networking opportunities and access to some of the world’s largest oil companies, including; Caspian Pipeline Company, Gazprom and Exxon Neftegas and Sakhalin Energy.”
With the effects of the current market still prominent within the industry, they were still able to share promising insights into new developments and innovations. The event proved to be an excellent forum to discuss the challenges we still may face and opportunities we have to be able to create a sustainable environment for our industry.
