5-6 October, INTERTANKO/Mare Forum Seminar on Maritime Transportation of Energy from Russia and Central Asia, St. Petersburg

With the development of extensive energy sources in the Russian Federation and Central Asia, the whole global energy balance, long aligned to the dominance of the Middle East, is subtly changing.

Mare Forum 2004 will be an opportunity to consider the commercial, financial and technical aspects of this contemporary energy challenge. It will endeavour to assess the reality of the energy prospects, the geo-political ramifications of this potential tilt in the energy axis and the investment opportunities thus produced.

It will consider the technical problems arising from the need to exploit energy resources in extreme climates, the need to develop robust and safe ships and other delivery systems, and the importance of protecting fragile natural environments in both the energy producing areas, and those en route to the importing countries.

More information is available here or from Anders Baardvik
