Impressive speakers give the Dubai Tanker Event a real cutting edge

Changing oil supply and demand figures are giving the tanker industry plenty to think about. This week the International Energy Agency (IEA) publishes a 220,000 bbls/day increase in its latest forecast for world oil demand – taking total growth forecast for the year to 1.65m bbls/day. At the same time IEA expresses its concerns at low US gasoline stocks as the start of the US driving season approaches.

INTERTANKO recognises the need of its members to have the very latest oil market information, as well as the latest financial, regulatory and freight market facts, so as to

keep their ‘edge’. We have therefore strengthened the oil market emphasis of the programme of our Dubai Tanker Event with an impressive list of speakers.

The Open Market Session will include the IEA’s very latest views and forecasts from its Klaus Rehaag focusing particularly on world oil production and energy supply and demand; Vela International’s Kristopher Horvath on VLCC demand; Qatargas’s Bob Curt on LNG developments, as well as Jürgen Salamon from Dr. Peters on ship finance.

A separate session on Middle East trends will include Ruba Husari from Petroleum Intelligence Weekly speaking on Middle East crude oil production with a particular emphasis on Iraq, and National Iranian Tanker Company’s Mohammad Souri on oil and gas developments in Iran.

As OPEC is mulling implementation of production cuts and curbs on export to Asia, and the world’s stock exchanges have ‘wobbled’ over the last few days, the Dubai Tanker Event offers a unique opportunity to find out how these events will effect tanker markets in the short and medium term.

The Dubai Tanker Event 2004 will be held 28-31 March at the Grand Hyatt Hotel and is kindly sponsored by ABS, V.Ships, GAC, International Tanker Management, Green Award Foundation, Braemar Seascope and Rutter Technologies.
