Due to a drop in prices on energy recourses the global Oil & Gas sector is currently going through a period of fundamental change. Not only regional stakeholders, but even global corporations are revising their approach to oil and gas production, treatment and transportation. They are also considering activities for upgrading the existing infrastructure and investing in new projects. Transportation routes are changing because of the political instability, among other reasons.
Business program of oil and gas exhibitions includes numerous congresses and meetings where Oil & Gas companies can get the most up-to-date information and maintain personal contacts with business partners and representatives of authorities.
In March, Beijing is hosting the largest industrial exhibition CIPPE 2015 which brings together several sectors: Oil & Gas and petrochemical equipment for exploration and production, offshore oil technologies (CM and CIOOE); oil and gas pipeline equipment, storage and transportation (CIPE); explosion prevention (ExPEC); shale gas production (CISGE).
