MESC 2016 provides an optimum opportunity for regional and international steel producers and related service enterprises, to network, exchange ideas and discuss the innovative industrial solutions and technologies that address the growing needs of the Oil & Gas Industry. While experts discussed quality and standards, they also highlighted UAE’s prudent economic policies that have maintained positive growth levels despite a decline in oil prices.
The region’s premier conference also focuses on enhancing the communication between steel mills, pipe manufacturers, structure makers and end users to overcome the challenges through using the latest technologies. In addition, the technical program highlights three main areas of interest including pipeline and tubular products, structural steel and quality and standards.
Hosted by Neft Management in collaboration with a committee of regional and international oil company representatives including SABIC, Saudi Arabia Chapter, Saudi Council of Engineers, Gulf Engineering Union, ASTM International, The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC), the exclusive conference witnessed government companies like SASO and Saudi Council of Engineers, and industry attendees and representatives of Oil & Gas sector from different countries on the first day.
“The low-oil prices seem to have no negative sentiments for the steel experts. MESC is a true reflection of the industry’s growth. Turning out to be a magnet for the industry leaders, the 4th edition of The Middle East Steel Conference is indeed a milestone for us. We are overwhelmed by the response we have received and hope that the conference will serve as an insightful forum for knowledge sharing and best-practices for all our visitors,” said Rafeeq Kunhi, Director, Neft Management.
