Introduction & Objective:

India is the bright spot on the “cloudy global horizon” says IMF chief Christine Lagarde.

  •  Imports of Crude Oil in India averaged 16.44 Million TONNE per month from 2014 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 18.13 Million TONNE in January of      2016 and a record low of 12.99 Million TONNE in February of 2015. Imports of Crude Oil in India is reported by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, India. Is    there a potential for Indian ship owners to increase their market share?
  •  India’s Current Refining capacity is estimated to be more than 215 MMTPA . More than 400 Very Large Crude Carriers terminate voyages on the Indian Coast  every year. In spite of this booming trade Indian ship owning sector has not grown to its true potential.
  •  Chemical Industry is central to any developing world economy. Developed economies have greater per capita usage of chemicals over the developing  economies.  Enhanced requirement of IMO2/3 Chemical tankers for both import and export of specialized products- Expect about 10 pct. growth over next 5  years. What opportunities will be created in terms of trade & employment?  
  •  According to a recently published TechSci Research report , India’s LNG demand is anticipated to increase from 64 mmscmd in 2015 to 306.54 mmscmd by  2025. What are the opportunities in India’s Seaborne LNG Transportation?
  •  Govt exempts customs and excise duty on use of bunker fuels. One of the issues hindering the growth of coastal shipping has been the levy of customs and  central excise duty on bunker fuels which raises cost of transportation. Will this step generate new business opportunities in India? 

With the above perspective in view and to explore if we are geared to grab the opportunities, The Shipping Tribune is pleased to announce a one-day conference on 3rd Feb 2017, Holiday Inn, Sakinaka, Andheri East, Mumbai.
