Argus Middle East Crude Conference Banner

Under the endorsement of the Ministry of Oil & Gas, Oman, the 4th Argus Middle East Crude Conference will gather regional and global market leaders from the crude industry to analyze the balance of fluctuating demand and supply pressures and explore current market trends.

Despite challenging market conditions, the Middle East region has expanded crude flows to Asia and aims to create a more efficient oil and gas industry and boost market confidence. Given the uncertainty that prevails in the global crude market with fluctuating prices, Iran’s return and China’s evolving economy, the conference provides a platform to discuss the key issues affecting the market.

With a specific focus on the Middle East region, the conference brings together national and international oil companies, crude oil traders, refiners, banks and EPC companies looking to gain crucial insight into current market trends and forge business relationships.
