Oil & Gas Industry Main Events in 2017

Kent: Most successful firms today focus on two things. They scour the market for the right client. They also search tirelessly for appropriate contractors and business partners.

The process is a mixed bag. How do companies find each other? How do they share knowledge and discuss working together? How do they match company values and standards?

Apart from the constant maintaining of ties with long time collaborators, industry events provide occasion to talk to a variety of big, medium-sized stagers and newcomers, presenting innovative, unique and refreshing approaches to the industry.

Premier events draw the input of suppliers and buyers from around the world. Here follows a list from Central European Staffing of what seem to be the most significant forthcoming Oil & Gas and Energy events and conferences in 2017.

European Gas Conference 2017

Taking place in Vienna, Austria between 23-25 January 2017. In recent years the gas market has seen tremendous shifts and the emergence of new supply sources, the comeback of coal in the power sector, the decline of domestic production along with a severe fall in oil and gas prices. However, one fact remains certain: gas is and will remain a central pillar of the European energy mix and promoting mutually beneficial relationships with Europe’s major supplier key. With 432 participants, 12 sponsors and 30 hours of networking in 2016, the 2017 Summit will set new levels of attendance and engagement through stimulating panel discussions, insightful presentations and invaluable networking opportunities for the European gas community. The conference will take place at the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel.

The main topics planned refer to the contemporary situation on the gas market, its profits and logistics as well as prospects for turbulence in the near future. Manly ‘LNG in the changing global supply-demand balance’, ‘New and old supply routes for Europe’, ‘Rethinking gas in the shifting energy mix’, ‘New scenarios for the European marketplace’, ‘New gas projects for the southern corridor’, ‘Competing for market share vs maintaining margins’.


The NOF Energy: A Balanced Future 2017 conference

From 7-8 of March 2017 in Sage, Gateshead, recommended by FPAL Achilles Community, a platform for contact and cross-checking both suppliers and buyers, of which Central European Staffing has been a proud member since 2014. A Balanced Future is a leading conference that addresses the need for a balanced energy mix. With a focus on oil, gas, nuclear and offshore renewables we have successfully brought together an impressive line-up of speakers to update you on their business activities and how to engage going forward.

The event is going to center around the UK O&G market just like last year. Speakers will address issues such as: ‘The UK and International Energy Industry, the current position’, ‘Efficiency and Effectiveness of Oil & Gas Supply Chains in Today’s Environment’, ‘Offshore wind and tidal, collaborating to create an efficient and effective renewables supply chain’, ‘Nuclear decommissioning at Sellafield’, ‘The role of INEOS in the UK’s onshore and offshore gas industry’.


Global Oil &Gas Turkey

Held in Istanbul from 15-16 of March 2017 this is an event of increasing importance. Turbulent Turkey is quickly recovering from the failed coup and is drawing ever closer to Russia. This, according to some ENI experts as well as Gasprom, shows that Turkey is quickly becoming an energy hub of regional importance. Some subjects include:

‘Regional economic outlook: Trends, market opportunities and outlook to 2025’, ‘East Mediterranean – a new strategic equation: a power vacuum in the east Mediterranean and an uncertain future’, ‘Investment and new business opportunities in the Turkish oil and gas sector’, ‘Turkish natural gas market: Liberalization stage and prospects for Turkey becoming a gas transit and a gas trading hub’ as well as ‘Unconventional resources: Optimization and best practices.’ Past conference topics have included: ‘Exploration and production onshore and offshore: Technical challenges and their solutions’, ‘Oil and gas transportation and storage infrastructure: Status, trends and economic benefits’.


Future Oil & Gas

Takes place in London between 6-7 of June 2017 bringing together the construction companies and the financial sector. A good opportunity to show the cost efficiency and other benefits of the employment business to the larger Oil & Gas society. The main fields of interest are divided into three sections ‘Market Consolidations’, ‘ A new Paradigm’ and ‘Emerging Technologies’. The first two focus on how companies are going to cooperate more closely and how they are going to cope with new challenges that arise from the uncertainty on the commodities market.


The Power-Gen 2017

It happens between 20-22 of June 2017 in Koelnmesse, Cologne, Germany and is an annual event anticipated throughout the year. Central European Staffing was present as an exhibitor at last year’s edition in Milan, Italy. In its 25th year, POWER-GEN Europe and co-located Renewable Energy World Europe, is the dynamic centre point, where a rapidly evolving power industry meets to gather information and compare views on shared opportunities and challenges. Attracting a worldwide audience, it claims to be the industry’s premier event, discussing solutions for Europe’s energy future.

Featuring the suppliers, sub-suppliers, service providers and end-users across the power generation value chain, POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe encapsulate all aspects of today’s centralised and distributed power generation sector. Together they combine strategic and technical presentations with the largest trade show exhibition of power equipment and services in Europe. It is known for its sessions concerning Electric Power Generation and Accumulation. With such subjects as ‘Strategy, policy, Regulations, Business & Finance’, ‘ Solutions for integration of renewable & decentralized Energy’, ‘ Renewable energy strategy, projects & technology’, ‘ Energy storage’, ‘ Modern plant management & emissions control’ as well as ‘ Gas fired generation’.
