NEFTEGAZ 2016, 16th International Exhibition for Equipment and Technologies for Oil and Gas Industries, will be held earlier than usual: from April 18 – 21, 2016 at the Expocentre in Moscow, Russia. Jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf, OOO Messe Düsseldorf Moscow and ZAO EXPOCENTR, the event will provide an information platform for the latest equipment and machinery developments for the oil and gas sectors as well as for meetings with experts to discuss the latest issues. NEFTEGAZ has the support of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation.

This is the first time that NEFTEGAZ will be held concurrently with the National Oil and Gas Forum (Hall 3), organized by the Russian Ministry of Energy and scheduled for April 19 and 20, 2016 ( In addition, there will be a wide-ranging ancillary program with workshops and expert talks.

Despite the current difficult political circumstances, the oil and gas industry is continuing to head for growth and is of far-reaching importance for international suppliers. Werner M. Dornscheidt, President and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, is optimistic about NEFTEGAZ: “Although the current situation isn’t easy, the oil and gas industry is of major global significance. NEFTEGAZ provides an ideal platform to create and cultivate valuable international contacts for future business, after Russia’s restrictive economic policy. I am confident that we will conclude NEFTEGAZ 2016 with a positive result.”

When NEFTEGAZ was last held in 2014, 795 exhibitors from 33 countries showcased their products on 609,750 square feet of exhibit space to 20,090 visitors from the oil, gas and other related industries.
