The 6th Saint Petersburg International Gas Forum, one of the leading venues to discuss current gas industry issues, will take place between the 4 – 7 October 2016 at the Expoforum Convention and Exhibition Center.
Saint Petersburg has today acquired the status of a leading international gas center, and the Gas Forum is now one of the most prestigious venues to discuss global gas industry perspectives. Its importance can be corroborated by the involvement of key Russian market players and global oil and gas industry leaders, as well as with the support of Russian government agencies, international oil and gas sector organisations and associations. The 2016 Forum will be supported by the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, PJSC Gazprom, Russian Gas Society, National NGV Consortium of Italy – NGV Italy.
In line with the now-established tradition, this year’s International Congress of Oil and Gas Industry Professionals will host more than 40 events – conferences, round table discussions, alignment meetings, all of which will be scheduled during the Congress.
In addition, the Forum’s programme will also include a Youth Day. The Youth Day events are intended to bring together representatives of the industry’s business elite and students from the leading universities in Russia and Europe to discuss career opportunities for promising professionals, and the future development of the gas industry as a whole. The first Youth Day was successfully held in 2015 and demonstrated willingness of global leaders to enter into dialogue with talented young people.
The convention program will include a comprehensive program of exhibitions which will include three international industry exhibitions InGAS Stream – Innovations in the gas industry, Gas-Engine Fuel and ROS-GAS-EXPO. They will demonstrate recent developments and promising projects in the gas industry manufacturing chain.
The 6th Gas Forum will place particular emphasis on the development of the gas-engine fuel market. NGV Italy in partnership with Gazprom Gas-Engine Fuel will complement the Gas-Engine Fuel Exhibition with a series of conferences and round-table discussions to allow debate of the achievements of international specialized companies.
