Thighly successful ICIS Middle East Base Oils & lubricants conference returns to Dubai for its 9th year. It has become the leading focus in the region for networking and high-level market information, and in 2012 we expect our highest-ever attendance of up to 350 delegates!
Interest in the industry in the Middle East has never been higher. New capacity in the region already on stream and on the horizon continues to attract a lot of attention around the world. Much of this production is intended for consumption outside the Middle East, so how will this impact the global supply/demand balances? What does the future hold for domestic consumption and the Middle East markets? Will this region move to higher quality base oils over time?
Political developments, too, have an impact on the situation in the region. Sanctions on Iran have affected supplies of Group I, and political unrest continues bring some volatility and anxiety to certain markets.
It is vital that these questions are discussed and debated, and the 9th ICIS Middle East Base Oils & Lubricants Conference is the ideal forum to hear expert opinion and meet your peers at this important time for the industry in the Middle East. The program will focus on these key regional issues yet also highlight the global drivers affecting market balances.
