After the success of its inaugural event last year, Fleming Gulf is delighted to announce, the 2nd Annual Middle East Petrochemicals Forum 2008, scheduled on the 21st and 22nd of April 2008 in Doha, Qatar. Due to the fluctuating crude oil prices, there might be change in the potential directions for basic resource. Therefore the experts in the petrochemicals industry must take into consideration changes brought about by the capacity growth and its subsequent impact on the global market. It is estimated by CMAI that by the year 2010, Middle East will produce around 20% of the world’s basic petrochemicals and polymers like ethylene and polyethylene.
The conference will look at the current situation in all of the emerging markets as well as other key topics such as industry rationalisation, supply and demand issues, investment strategies and opportunities, the impact of high oil prices, refinery integration as well as the latest in technological advances and the expansion of low-cost production facilities.
Bringing together key players from across the globe, this timely event will bring attendees up to date on all issues affecting the industry as well as provide outstanding networking opportunities. This is your chance to meet with leading industry experts and decision makers who can make a difference to your business.
We have key contributions from some of the leading industry players such as QP, QAPCO, Shell, PIC, Borouge, GPIC and many more. These industry experts would discuss key issues revolving around the market along with an interactive panel discussion giving a chance to all the attendees to put forward their viewpoints as well.
