International Oil and Gas Exhibition KIOGE 2015 Enables Effective Exchange of Experiences

The global oil and gas industry has its ebbs and flows but KIOGE remains the leading meeting place for professionals in Kazakhstan’s oil industry.

Opening KIOGE 2015, Magzum Mirzagaliyev, Vice Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, said, “KIOGE is regarded as the place for reaching agreements and is a stepping stone towards implementing perspective projects. I am pleased to see here both our old friends and new guests, representatives of Kazakhstani and foreign companies, and everybody who commits their long-term strategic priorities to Kazakhstan’s oil and gas industry, who shares partnership ideas for development. Our country highly values the dialogue and focus on joint work.”

The 23rd KIOGE exhibition took place from 6-9 October at Atakent, Almaty, bringing together over 350 exhibitors from 25 countries, ranging from exploration and production to refinery and consulting companies. National stands were held by Austria, Germany and China. For four days of the exhibition, the event was visited by more than 4,000 industry specialists.

The exhibition took place with support from the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, KazMunaiGaz, the Akimat (Mayor’s office) of the City of Almaty, the Kazakhstan Union of Service Companies KazService and diplomatic missions from participating countries.

KIOGE 2015’s partners included Bashneftegeofizika, Welltec, Velan, GMC Group, Ozna Company, Lloyd`s Register Energy, Auma Drives, Tengizchevroil, TMF Group, Fluor and Honeywell.

Maksat Tadzhibayev, KazNIPImunaygas JSC:

“I enjoy visiting KIOGE. It is the epicentre of the latest events related to oil and gas. Such exhibitions are very useful, as here we meet other large companies and potential partners.”

Aleksey Usachev, Chief Engineer for Electrical Equipment Repair of the Atyrau Petrochemical Plant (APP), noted that his visit had been both efficient and effective. He made contact with around ten companies from Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and other countries.

KIOGE 2015 presented technologies for oil and gas storage and transportation, manufacturers of the latest measurement tools, pressure and temperature control devices, and muc more.

Along with foreign exhibitors, local companies and joint enterprises demonstrated advanced solutions for the oil and gas industry.

As usual, the key exhibit was KazMunaiGaz’s stand, which brought together its subsidiaries. Nurtas Shmanov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board for Service Projects of KazMunaiGaz; Kayrgeldy Kabyldin, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board for Oil Transportation of KazMunaiGaz; and Kairat Sharipbayev, Deputy Chairman of the Transportation and Marketing of Gas of KazMunaiGaz, took active part in KIOGE 2015.

Germany was represented by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy of the Federal Republic of Germany in cooperation with the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry with support from the Association of German Engineers.

Monica Khoplakher, Head of the CIS Countries Division of the Association of German Engineers commented, “We are here through the German Ministry of Economic Affairs’ programme to support mid-size companies that would not otherwise get the opportunity to enter foreign markets independently, especially those remote from Germany. Here, at KIOGE, we are presenting 26 companies from various sectors. These are mainly manufacturers of pumps, offshore platforms, fittings, various energy equipment and technological services, including drilling works.”

Michael Muller, on behalf of the Trade Attaché and Head of the Commercial Section of the Austrian Embassy to Kazakhstan, noted in his official welcome letter, that it is the first time that Austria’s official trade promotion organisation Advantage Austria presented a stand that brought together 11 companies. “In terms of the need for greater efficiency and cost savings, the Made in Austria quality brand is especially in demand.”

China was well represented at the exhibition, particularly by regional and related branches of the CNPC Corporation. Xinjiang Petroleum Survey and Design Institute were among newcomers this year.

At the beginning of the 90s, KIOGE mainly featured oil companies, but in recent years, more and more manufacturers have been exhibiting, and not just from Kazakhstan – this year China and Russia were widely represented. One Russian company exhibiting was Ozna, represented by Olga Shokurova, who said, “We are regular exhibitors at KIOGE. Our company has worked in Kazakhstan for many years and we intend to remain here for a long time to come.”

The largest Russian manufacturer of electric blast-resistant equipment, Velan, presented a blast-resistant computer and wireless Wi-Fi access point for the first time in Kazakhstan.

IEC TELECOM presented three innovative solutions for voice and data transfer: Thuraya Atlas, Thuraya IP+ and Thuraya HotSleeve focus on optimising business processes and efficiency gains in modern business. “We see a lot of interest from the conference participants in our new solutions. Innovations in telecommunications enable the oil and gas industry to save costs and time, which is of critical importance during the crisis. That was the reason of our success at KIOGE, I suppose,” commented Nabil Ben Soussia, CEO of IEC Telecom Kazakhstan.

The huge outdoor presented a whole range of car modifications, including those from Almaty Kamaz Autocentre. Here, one could also examine containers produced in Kazakhstan, solar power electrical generators and engines from Europe, a huge cable handling vehicle and other equipment.

Every year, Iteca and its international partner ITE Group offer exhibitors and visitors new technological solutions to help make the most of the exhibition’s opportunities. This year, a new visitor registration system was introduced, providing a more efficient data processing system enabling the team to inform visitors of upcoming events and reduce registration time.

KIOGE 2015: Oil and Gas to Keep Dominant Role in Global Energy Balance

The 23rd International KIOGE 2015 Oil & Gas Conference was held in Almaty from 7-8 October.

Opening the plenary session, Magzum Mirzagaliyev, Vice Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, said, “KIOGE is regarded as the place for reaching agreements and is a stepping stone towards implementing perspective projects. I am confident that this year will be no exception and will enable us to learn about the latest developments and technological solutions in the oil and gas industry, ensure opinions on pressing issues are shared and will have a positive impact on the latest ideas and achievements in the oil and gas industry.”

KIOGE 2015’s partners included Bashneftegeofizika, Welltec, Velan, GMC Group, Ozna Company, Lloyd`s Register Energy, Auma Drives, Tengizchevroil, TMF Group, Fluor and Honeywell.

The conference took place with support from the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, KazMunaiGaz, the Akimat (Mayor’s office) of the City of Almaty, the Kazakhstan Union of Service Companies KazService and diplomatic missions from participating countries.

KIOGE 2015 was once again an important platform for discussing the difficult situation that we are currently seeing on the energy markets. The conference proved that experts are not inclined to overstate the issue, despite the challenges.

Magzum Mirzagaliyev suggested that, according to the International Energy Agency, annual oil consumption is due to increase by more than 1/3 by 2030. Though the consumption growth rate will slow, oil and gas’ dominant role in the global energy balance will remain.

This is expected to be true for both the global oil and gas industry and Kazakhstan’s oil and gas sector. This also identifies the further need for events such as KIOGE. The conference has become more technical as a response to challenges in global processes: the initial sessions covered issues such as maximizing oil production.

This can be justified by processes pointed out by Mr Mirzagaliyev, “Today, the world is on the brink of understanding that the era of ‘easy oil’ is a thing of the past and, as experts believe, Earth’s main oil and gas resources are concentrated at depths of 7-15km. Kazakhstan’s oil and gas industry is dependent on deposits in the Caspian Lowland where 75-80% of the hydrocarbon resources are located. However, in 15-20 years, we expect a decrease in oil production in the Tengiz, Karachaganak, and Kashagan fields and in Kazakhstan as a whole. The resource base can only be replenished by exploring deeper layers where nearly two dozen large (over 300 million tonnes) hydrocarbon deposits are likely to be found.”

The Eurasia project – an extra-deep well in the Pre-Caspian region – was, as expected, mentioned in the report. According to Kazakhstani experts, the project will not only attract leading international companies but will also provide an opportunity to keep the level of oil production in Kazakhstan at 100 million tonnes a year in the long term. A package of beneficial investment terms and tax reductions is being developed for the project, KazMunaiGaz are setting up an operational company, works on acquiring and processing data are scheduled for 2016, seismic exploration is planned for 2017 and preparation for shell drilling is expected from 2019-2020.

According to Nurtas Shmanov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board for Service Projects of KazMunaiGaz, KIOGE 2015 has reaffirmed its status as a major and reputable event for discussing development issues and presenting advanced technological solutions in the fuel and energy industry.

The industry currently faces a number of challenges. In particular, the need for large-scale oil and gas exploration in low geological layers. “This is not a big amount; it is a huge amount of long-term and hard work. But Kazakhstan and its foreign partners have potential to reach these layers,” stressed Mr. Shmanov. The conference will contribute to discussing further steps.

The conference also covered the regional aspect of industry development. Larisa Zhumagaliyeva, Head of the Agency for Entrepreneurship and Industrial Innovative Development of the Akimat (Mayor’s office) of the Atyrau Region, noted the significance of the conference for the region she represents. “Atyrau is the centre of the national oil and gas cluster that will develop in a number of directions.” Ms. Zhumagaliyeva pointed out, noting, in particular, the start of oil and gas extraction in the Kashagan field in the near future. She also expressed her hope that those present would use the free economic zone to implement their ideas and plans in the Atyrau Region.

KIOGE’s status as an informative platform for sharing major achievements was affirmed by Murat Munbayev, General Manager of Strategic Planning and Analysis Department of Tengizchevroil LLP. The exploration of the Tengiz field has been a catalyst for the development of related industries, especially transporting oil via the CIS’s first and only private pipeline. Tengizchevroil’s success was achieved mainly by ensuring work safety.

Bazar Eskozha, Chief Geologist of North Caspian Oil Development LLP addressed an important aspect of geological exploration in Kazakhstan. The renowned expert talked about prospects for using Mesozoic rock mass interiors, which may help avoid the decline in production.

As usual, the first day of the conference ended with an awards ceremony hosted by Almas Kudaybergen, representative of KazService Kazakhstan Union of Service Companies. He noted that 1 million people in Kazakhstan depend on the work of the companies in this sector. The Union established the awards for professionals contributing to development in the sector. Along with managers of oil companies, Magzum Mirzagaliyev, Vice Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and Zhakyp Marabayev, Deputy Managing Director of NCOC, received awards.

Speakers also discussed legal mechanisms to reduce losses, retain valuable staff during a crisis and use technologies for domestic production. An entire day was dedicated to issues of transportation and diversifying deliveries, optimising business processes, environmental protection and restricting harmful emissions.

Over 350 delegates participated in the conference, namely senior managers, heads of structural units, geologists, geophysicists, project engineers, developers, technical directors, business development managers, ambassadors and heads of diplomatic missions, sales representatives from various countries, and others.

In line with ITE Group’s broader initiative, KIOGE will take place next year under the new Global Oil and Gas brand, a single universally recognised brand for ITE’s oil and gas events.
