Middle East Bunkering Convention 2016 • Dubai • UAE • 13-17 March

on Monday, 11 January 2016. Posted in Petrospot News

Petrospot will launch its inaugural Middle East Bunkering Convention in Dubai in March. The event consists of a high-powered two-day conference and a series of focused training courses on bunkering and marine surveying.

The MEBC conference offers hard-hitting intellectual content covering bunker quality and quantity, oil supply and demand, environmental regulation and developments in port, shipping and bunkering infrastructure. It examines the potential impact of the easing of Iranian sanctions and features two important regional case studies, on Oman and India.

The conference looks at the state of the shipping, oil and bunker markets locally, regionally and globally, examining international environmental developments and how the Middle East will fare once the proposed global sulphur cap is introduced in 2020 or 2025.

A unique legal session provides useful insight and ‘free’ legal advice on potential legal problems and how to resolve them.

A distinguished panel discussion brings together some of the best international legal and commercial minds to discuss the fallout from the OW Bunker bankruptcy; the ongoing chaos in world shipping and bunker markets; the long-term impact on the roles of bunker suppliers, traders and brokers; and the rise of new online-based fuel procurement platforms.

The week includes the three-day Oxford Bunker Course (Advanced), a half-day Bunker Dispute Resolution Workshop, IBIA’s one-day Basic Bunker Course, and a Marine Surveying Masterclass, consisting of six separate modules.

The Middle East Bunkering Convention is aimed at shipowners and operators, bunker suppliers and traders, surveyors, agents, port authorities and storage companies, maritime lawyers, insurers and related service industries.
