About 700 exhibitors from 30 nations are expected at NEFTEGAZ 2017, International Exhibition for Equipment and Technologies for Oil and Gas Industries. The recent economic and political issues in Russia have not affected the oil and gas industries which is reflected in the strong exhibit space demand for the trade show to be held from April 17 – 20, 2017 at Moscow’s EXPOCENTRE. Together with the concurrently held National Oil and Gas Forum, NEFTEGAZ 2017 will be the meeting point for Russian industry and trade specialists from all the main national energy groups as well as international sector experts.

Organized by Messe Düsseldorf, Messe Düsseldorf Moskau OOO and ZAO EXPOCENTR, NEFTEGAZ 2017 is the only trade show in the industry to be granted the patronage of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation. With the annual staging of NEFTEGAZ and the National Oil and Gas Forum, the Ministry has reinforced the cooperation between industry and politics in the energy sector which is of vital importance to Russia.

The exhibiting companies will present the latest machinery, equipment and technology for extraction of oil and gas reserves as well as modern systems for monitoring the environment. Along with the host nation Russia, Germany is one of the strongest exhibiting countries and will be represented by a joint stand organized in cooperation with the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) as well as individual exhibitors. Other well-represented countries include Italy, France, the U.S. and China. This international scope of exhibitors guarantees an all encompassing range - from large corporations to small specialist companies.

For NEFTEGAZ exhibitors, this trade fair is the perfect platform to present innovative technology to a professional specialist audience. “In order to be able to face the challenges of both the past and the future, it is essential that we familiarize ourselves with the industry’s innovative solutions. In the Russian oil and gas sector, we must invest in modernizing our systems in order to boost profitability and minimize operational risks. At NEFTEGAZ 2017, Honeywell will present innovations that will allow companies in the oil and gas industry to boost their performance, ensure efficient energy management and improve operational safety,” stated Miroslav Kafedzhiev, President of Honeywell Russia. Alexey Prokopyev, Acting Development Director for OOO Centrax Gas Turbines Rus, added: “We consider our participation in the trade fair to be a great opportunity to share best practice solutions and innovative ideas with our clients. Centrax invests a huge amount of money in building up its service networks around the globe. We offer our clients the highest level of support at every stage of development and extraction.”

In addition to the National Oil and Gas Forum, an extensive ancillary program with workshops and expert talks will complement the NEFTEGAZ 2017 exhibits.
