Published:  23 September, 2016

Tank Storage Asia 2016 returns to The Marina Bay Sands, Singapore next week, with an expanded show floor, improved conference programme and more international suppliers.

The Tank Storage Asia 2016 conference features over 20 global authorities from the bulk liquid storage sector. Experts from companies such as Nexant, Tri-Zen, Aurecon and API will provide visitors with an insight into the sector’s critical issues at both a local level and on a global scale.

Clive Gibson, Vice President, Asia Energy & Chemicals at Nexant, will take a regional outlook, focusing on the key drivers for storage demand in Asia crude oil, and looking at the petrochemical trends in the region.

Maintaining the regional emphasis will be Danial Mah, CEO of Labuan International Business and Financial Centre, who will present ‘Malaysia as Asia’s Trading Hub’. He will examine why Malaysia is perfectly suited for oil and gas trading, whilst also looking at the incentives for oil commodities traders in the area.

China is set to be a key focus at the 2016 conference, with Ms Li Li, Head of Research Team at ICIS China, taking to the stage on day one to discuss ‘China: Good or bad timing for the crude oil storage business in the world’s top crude importing country?’ Ms Li will examine China’s trading, renting and contango; looking into its crude oil importing and storage prospects, and speaking about China’s State Petroleum Reserve Plan.

Running alongside the conference programme will be a packed exhibition hall, with over 75 leading organisations. Bioex will be launching its new formula, Ecopol F3 HC. It is the first fluorine-free 3 per cent foam concentrate that is suitable for use on hydrocarbon fires.  

Acez, in partnership with Gas Clip Technologies, will be displaying the new Multi Gas Clip Infrared, a portable gas detector for combustible gases. This can run for two months without needing to be recharged and only requires calibration once a year.
