CHINA / ASIA OIL & PETROCHEMICALS STORAGE & TERMINALS
Date: 12-13 December 2005
Venue: White Swan Hotel, Guangzhou, China
The accelerated growth in global oil demand over the last few years, high freight rates and rising volume of oil and petroleum transported by tankers, have fueled the growth of the oil and petrochemicals storage sector. High oil price coupled with the robust inter-regional oil trade are sparking off more investments in China's oil storage sector as well as other parts of Asia like Singapore.
For instance, Sinopec Corp. is building a 300,000-ton oil terminal and 21.4 million barrels of crude storages in East China to handle surging oil imports. Cashing in on Asia's growing need for foreign fuel as demand soars, oil companies will spend almost $1 billion to nearly double oil storage capacity in Singapore by 2008.
The conference will offer a forum for industry players to discuss issues driving the developments in trading, import/export, refining and logistics/transportation, which in turn leads to the development of storage & terminals service.
Featuring a line-up of speakers from Sinopec, Unipec, ChevronTexaco, Indian Oil Corporation, Shanghai Chemical Industry Park, Reliance Industries and others to talk on the following topics :
Demand & Supply and Trade of Oil and Petrochemicals in China
