With 586 exhibitors from 26 nations and 20,200 international trade visitors, the recent staging of NEFTEGAZ 2017 - International Exhibition for Equipment and Technologies for the Oil and Gas Industry - in Moscow again confirmed the events’ status as the most important industry meeting point for experts from all over the world.

The exhibitor presented an extensive range of equipment for the oil and gas industries on 639,400 square feet of gross exhibition space. Alongside the latest extraction technologies for oil and gas reserves the trend themes at many stands were the future of the raw materials business, modern environmental monitoring systems and the trend towards Industry 4.0.

Leading national companies such as Gazprom, Tatneft, Transneft and TMK as well as major international brands including R&B Industrial Supply Company, Honeywell Process Solutions, Jumo, Kanex-Krohne, China Petroleum Technology & Development Corporation and Schneider Electric exhibited at NEFTEGAZ 2017.

This year’s NEFTEGAZ was again accompanied by a varied ancillary program consisting of seminars and panel discussions as well as the concurrently held Oil & Gas Forum for Oil and Gas Extraction Technologies.

Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, President & CEO of the organizer Messe Düsseldorf, was pleased with the results of NEFTEGAZ 2017: “One thing has become perfectly clear again: the concurrent staging of the trade fair and the national Oil & Gas Forum results in valuable additional business opportunities for our exhibitors and visitors. At NEFTEGAZ experts meet with the entire spectrum of the industry. As the only trade fair for the sector, NEFTEGAZ is under the patronage of the Energy Ministry of the Russian Federation. We and our partners OOO Messe Düsseldorf Moscow and AO EXPOCENTR regard this as a special honor.”

The exhibitors at NEFTEGAZ 2017 praised the high visitor competence, concluded deals and networking among experts. Alexej Kovalev, Vice-CEO of OOO VEGA INSTRUMENTS and representative of VEGA Grieshaber KG, Germany, commented: “Our company has already participated in NEFTEGAZ for over 15 years now. If a company decides to participate, it primarily hopes to substantially boost its sales, get to know new customers and strike new deals. In this regard our participation has paid off to the max.” Many high-caliber companies such as Allrus OOO, Drillmec, Honeywell, JUMO GmbH & Co. KG, KSR KÜBLER RUS, OOO MSA SAFETY, MTU RUS OOO and KSR KÜBLER RUS have already announced their participation at the next event in April 2018.

NEFTEGAZ 2017 Exhibitor Statements

Uwe Neumann, CEO at Bauer Kompressoren OOO
“Bauer Kompressoren has been active on the Russian market for over 30 years. To us the trade exhibition participation first and foremost means making “live” contacts with our existing customers, and, of course, getting to know new potential clients. The principal aim is to demonstrate our developers’ solutions for energy markets. I think that we will take part in NEFTEGAZ next year again. This is a unique opportunity to present our company and provide information about our products but to also get a feeling for the competitors’ level and assess opportunities by and large.”

Sergej Popov, Marketing Manager Russia / CIS at Honeywell
“At NEFTEGAZ 2017 we introduced trade fair visitors to the “Connected plan Concept”, to name just one idea, which foresees the integration of IIoT-technologies (industrial Internet of things) in operation. At our stand a programmable logic controller of the new generation Control Edge PLC with OPCUA server was presented in Russia for the first time. This device guarantees cyber security, multi-vendor compatibility, efficient operation, easy handling and maintenance of plants. Furthermore, Honeywell presented a new line of products for gas measuring and reduction, manufactured by ELSTER Gaselektronika, a company which is part of our group. We plan our trade fair participation very carefully: we prepare and try to impress our audience with innovative solutions. Our company has been represented in the oil and gas industries for a long time now and quite successfully. This is why Honeywell’s showcase at NEFTEGAZ is a key component of our image. For Honeywell, NEFTEGAZ has become a good tradition, which we want to continue.”

Alexej Kovalev, Vice-CEO at OOO “VEGA INSTRUMENTS”, Representative of VEGA Grieshaber KG, Germany
“Our company has already taken part in NEFTEGAZ for over 15 years. If a company decides to participate, it primarily hopes to substantially boost its sales, get to know new customers and strike new deals. In this regard our participation has paid off to the max. At the exhibition we met new customers from Russia and the CIS, showcasing our innovative solutions for the energy business. On top of this, we had the opportunity to meet with our existing buyers. I am convinced that we will see the first results regarding the expansion of our cooperation already this year.”

Natalija Proshina, PR and Marketing Manager at Allrus OOO
“We have participated in NEFTEGAZ for over 10 years. In my opinion, NEFTEGAZ is a meeting point for finalizing plans for the coming year as well as an efficient platform for information exchange. The main objective of our trade fair participation is to present our range and take a closer look at the needs of the energy market. I would specifically like to praise the quality of the visitors: they are highly qualified specialists and industry experts. We had many visitors at our stand and are currently preparing a summary report of our participation. Our staff collected leads during the entire duration of the exhibition. Soon this data will be processed and we will contact the customers we talked to at the exhibition. NEFTEGAZ is an efficient communication platform for us. In 2018 we are planning to take part in the exhibition again.”

Ludmila Moskovskaja, Commercial Director at JUMO GmbH & Co. KG, representative for Russia 
“Our company has already had an exhibition stand at NEFTEGAZ for 20 years. With our participation we aim to get new business contacts and maintain existing ones. To us, meeting with our potential buyers means an additional opportunity to distribute information about Jumo products for the energy industry. Usually, we exhibit two to three new products at the exhibition. Our products are developed in line with the specifier’s requirements and market needs. Our participation in the exhibition was very successful and resulted in a good deal of business. I am sure we will take part again in NEFTEGAZ 2018.”

Igor Utkin, Marketing Manager at OOO MSA SAFETY
“Our company participated in NEFTEGAZ for the first time. Our main objective was to attract a particular target group’s attention to our products. We should stress at this point that trade fair visitors are specialists from the energy sector. It is very likely that we will also reserve an exhibition stand at NEFTEGAZ 2018.”

Gennady Sychev, Technical Director at KSR KÜBLER RUS
“We are regular exhibitors at NEFTEGAZ and have participated for more than ten years now. To us NEFTEGAZ is an efficient platform to inform the audience about our innovations. Here we disclose our plans, meet with potential customers and, naturally, seek new buyers for our products. You can break down our visitors into two groups: our partners with whom we have already cooperated for more than 20 years. They visit our stand to get an information update. And new visitors who have just been introduced to our products – potential customers for us. We do our utmost to inform visitors as effectively as possible about our range and innovative possibilities. Participation in NEFTEGAZ means for us to primarily build our image and to boost sales. We will see how efficient our participation was over the course of the year. On our market you have to wait for results – there are no “quick wins”. I anticipate that we will take part in NEFTGAZ 2018.”

Andrea Ricotta, Sales Dept. at Drillmec
“Our company has taken part in NEFTEGAZ for “ages”. It is one of the most attractive trade fairs for the oil and gas industry. We met suppliers and like-minded people in Moscow this time. We met many visitors who took an interest in our products and were keen on testing our technology. We found new partners and made new business contacts. This will be beneficial for us in the future. Needless to say, we will participate in the next NEFTGAZ in 2018.”
