31st National Petrochemical & Refiners Association (NPRA) conference, San Antonio

INTERTANKO was invited to attend the 31st National Petrochemical & Refiners Association (NPRA) conference in San Antonio this week as a guest speaker in the Supply Chain Session. Over 3000 people attended the event.

The topic of our presentation was MARPOL Annex II and the associated revisions of the IBC Code. The presentation delivered by Captain Snaith (INTERTANKO's Marine Director) can be viewed here or on the INTERTANKO web site at: http://www.intertanko.com/about/presentations/.

This was an excellent opportunity to advise the manufacturers and producers about the forthcoming changes that will come into effect on the 1 January 2007 with the revisions to MARPOL Annex II.

Other prominent speakers at the event included General Colin Powell USA (Ret.), the 65th U.S. Secretary of State.
