    Tank Storage Asia 2014 Conference

Tank Storage Asia, taking place on 24-25 September at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, boasts its strongest ever conference line up. Over 20 leading authorities in the bulk liquid storage sector will discuss the region’s critical issues - everything from changing trade flows and the shale boom to the storage market in China and the growth of the Asian biofuels market.

Jack Van Lint, Vice President of Business Development for Oiltanking, will share his views on storage developments in Indonesia and Greater Singapore. Lim Wee Seng, Managing Director at DBS Bank, will outline the key considerations when financing terminal expansions and greenfield developments. The shale boom which has lowered energy prices in the US has a number of ramifications. Not least it is attracting more overseas US manufacturers to move parts of their production back home. While there are fears this could pose a risk to Asian markets, some analysts say the impact is likely to be muted. Richard Gorry, Managing Director of JBC Asia will discuss this and the other impacts of the shale boom on the Asia oil storage market.

As we move towards 2020, it is expected that more than half of the oil and gas trade is expected to flow East of Suez. Moe Merican, Lead Consultant at Tri-Zen will examine this trend and the potential opportunities it presents to the storage sector. Many in the industry are looking for ways to improve terminal profitability and efficiency. In his talk, Mike Beviss, Director of Special Projects at Eastport Global Pte, will explore the increasing importance of storage terminal efficiency in the Asian logistics chain. For attendees looking for the latest innovations in laser scanning and 3D modelling, Peter Merrett, Owner of Merrett Surveys Ltd, is delivering a session on the application of laser scanning and 3D modelling for tank deformation and high accuracy volumes.

Running alongside the conference, will be the free-to-attend Tank Storage Asia exhibition. This will feature the latest technologies, products and service developments from over 60 suppliers spanning the entire tank storage spectrum.
