Argus Mediterranean Storage & Logistics Conference 2015

The 2015 conference will be an essential event for all those involved in the Mediterranean liquid bulk storage market. It will bring together oil companies, traders, refineries, operational heads and commercial managers from terminals, storage owners and tank technology, construction and maintenance service providers from across Southern Europe, Turkey, the Levant and North Africa to discuss the major issues facing the industry.

The decision to host a Mediterranean was made after the Argus Africa Storage and Logistics 2014 conference sold out. 

The 2015 conference will address the latest developments in oil markets and analyse their effects on the profitability of storage. Opec’s recent decision not to curb output and the strong growth in US tight oil production have depressed prices of oil for short term delivery, while those further forward have fallen less steeply. The understanding of the evolution of these price relationships will be crucial to companies that own or use storage facilities in the region.
