Introduction & Objective:
Stalwarts of the industry will discuss the current and future trends of the Seaborne Oil, Chemicals & Gas Tanker Trade. Join the stalwarts and industry colleagues in the discussions to explore “Emerging Opportunities in India's Seaborne Oil, Chemicals & Gas Tanker Trade”
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 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? What is the impact of latest regulatory measures on Seaborne Oil and Chemical trade?
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 2nd Feb 2018, Holiday Inn, Sakinaka, Andheri East, Mumbai.
