Tank Storage Asia 2013 ‘strongest ever’ conference programme

Published:  18 October, 2013

Conference will see over 20 leading authorities in the Asian bulk liquid storage sector deliver sessions on the critical issues spanning the whole region - from the Middle East to China and New Zealand.

In a major coup, Xu Ruiqing, Chief Commercial Director at Sinopec Kantons, will share an insight into his company's domestic and global expansion plans. In the past year the company has signed several deals to buy or build major fuel storage facilities in Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates and Europe, raising HK$5.2 billion in the past 18 months to fund its expansion. His presentation on the second day will be a ‘must-attend’ session for those with businesses on the expansion trail.

Many delegates are looking for ways to improve terminal profitability, efficiency and safety. In her talk speaker Binu Chaudhary, Regional Commercial Manager at Mott MacDonald in Singapore, will argue that front-end engineering is crucial. “Many companies get far into a terminal project and then start thinking about the engineering. Yet smart front-end engineering will transform a terminal’s day-to-day operations and safety – yielding huge long-term savings. It will only increase overall terminal costs by 1-2%, but the potential time and cost savings could be absolutely enormous.”

Health and safety is on most agendas and the programme offers an abundance of important industry knowledge. For instance, Stuart Chia, Principal at Sherpa Asia Consulting, is sharing the lessons to be learned from incidents such as Jaipur and Buncefield, while Prof. Yu, Member of the hugely influential China Standardization Committee, is clarifying China's standards both for breather valves and for the use of flame arresters.

Running alongside the conference, the free-to-attend Tank Storage Asia exhibition will feature latest product and service developments from 80% more exhibitors than in 2012, spanning the entire tank storage spectrum.

Tank Storage Asia takes place from 10–11 December 2013 at Singapore Expo, to find out more about attending visit www.tankstorageasia.com
