Overseas Delegation to Turkey (Energy)
29 Feb 2016 - 03 Mar 2016
All UK companies
The EIC is managing an oil and gas trade delegation to Turkey. This event is to coincide with the GREAT Summit organised by UKTI with delegates taking part in the one day exhibition alongside the GREAT Summit for free!
Turkey has huge potential to become a major global energy hub due to its geostrategic location. Situated between the Middle East and the Caspian Region to the east, with over 75% of global oil and gas reserves, and the European Union to the west, the largest consumer of these reserves, Turkey plays a crucial role in linking the supply and demand.
It is predicted that Europe will increase its imports of natural gas from 64% to 80% by 2030 and therefore Europe urgently needs to find a secure and diverse supply. Major gas exporting countries in the Middle East and Caspian Region can meet this demand, but rely on Turkey to provide the supply route. Turkey are keen to take advantage of its location and has several current and future pipeline projects in place, such as the Turkish Stream project, that run both East-West and North-South through the country.
GREAT SUMMIT (HOSTED BY UKTI)
The Summit aims at bringing National Oil Companies (NOCs) of Turkey, Azerbaijan & Kazakhstan together with “best in class” British expertise in the areas of exploration, reservoir, well and drilling management, field integrity and asset management, gas utilisation and finance/commercial/project management to discuss current/future development plans and opportunities.
With the British Government’s support, the Summit will act as a high profile platform for companies, who are currently operating in as well as those interested in entering to these markets, to demonstrate their close and supportive strategic relationship with the British Government.
There will also be a Welcome/Networking Reception as well as a Gala Dinner included for all delegates.
