Tank Storage Middle East, Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, UAE

Published:  04 December, 2014

FOR YOUR DIARY: The inaugural Tank Storage Middle East (January 26-27) event boasts a strong speaker line-up for its conference programme. 

The largest dedicated tank storage event for the region hosts a two-day, paid-for conference, which will see over 20 experts from companies such as ENOC, SIDDCO Group, Fujairah Oil Terminal, Gulf Petrochem and GPS Chemoil share best practices, provide future forecasts and explore the growth of renewable fuels in the Middle East.

Few industries are developing as quickly as the energy sector. Akber R Naqvi, Executive Director at Al Masah Capital, will consider the factors impacting demand for storage capacity in the Middle East.

Continuing the theme of a booming storage sector will be Tarun Arora, General Manager at GPS Chemoil who will delve into the potential pitfalls of overcapacity in Fujairah. Fujairah clearly has a key role to play within the Middle East, so providing further details on this Emirate will be Nizam Noorali, COO at Socar Aurora. He will talk about the opportunities and challenges Fujairah faces as a trading hub, why it has become such a popular storage destination and what’s needed to move it forward.

Oman plays an increasingly critical role within the Middle East storage industry and as such the conference programme is packed full of updates and assessments for Oman. Edwin Lammers, Commercial Director from SOHAR Port and Freezone will discuss the country’s bulk liquid storage hub, detailing the developments at the Port of Sohar and the advantages of this location.

As part of the conference’s safety content Nabeel H. Ali, Chief Fire & Safety Compliance Officer at ENOC, will discuss the importance of preparing, implementing and monitoring a sustainable fire prevention system. His talk will explore the significance of conducting frequent fire fighting equipment adequacy tests and how to ensure the effectiveness of a fire prevention system.

Tank Storage Middle East 2015 also features a free-to-attend exhibition.
