On 6-9 May the ChelPipe Group for the fifth time took part in the largest oil and gas exhibition in the Middle East, surprising and awaking the interest of partners from different countries to its products.
The Iran Oil Show is one the five world largest exhibition platforms of the industry which attracts the attention of all leading companies from all the continents. The participants of the Iran Oil Show which always takes place in the capital of Iran, Teheran, present advanced technologies and developments, conclude mega transactions and discuss the prospects of the development of the power engineering branch for future decades. Russia plays a significant role in these processes.
Why is the Iran Oil Show so important? Firstly, the exhibition has repeatedly confirmed its high status. In 2018 it took place for the 23rd time. Secondly, the Middle East is one of the most perspective and dynamically emerging markets on the planet. In experts’ common opinion, it will continue its active development, and will be influencing the power engineering agenda all over the world more and more year by year. It is indicative that when trading sanctions were lifted from Iran several years ago the number of Iran Oil Show participants doubled.
And it is still growing. In 2018, 4,000 exhibitors from 40 countries, including Iran, Russia, China, USA, Germany, Venezuela, South Korea, Japan and others., took part in the show. They presented a wide range of equipment and technologies in 10 thematic directions over the area of about 80,000 m2 in 28 pavilions.
Equipment and technologies which promote sustainable oil and gas extraction took center stage among the participants of the exhibition this year. The purpose of all leading companies of the world is to make mining operations as effective as possible and not to cause any harm to the planet.
More than 100,000 experts from all the planet came to the show as guests. Traditionally, directors and top managers of companies come to Teheran, therefore many contracts are always signed at the Iran Oil Show.
Iran and Russia have well-established business relations. Russia is an old partner of this state. Last year, the trade turnover between the countries exceeded 800,000,000 USD and 95 % from this sum is accounted for by Russian export. And it is only the beginning. Vyacheslav Volodin, Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, noticed that the volume of Russian investments into the oil and gas economy can be calculated in billions dollars.
It is no wonder that the Russian delegation was traditionally in the centre of attention at the Iran Oil Show. In 2018 the Russian exposition for the first time was organized with the financial support of the Russian export centre. Over the area of almost 500 m2 the products were placed by 14 leading domestic companies of the oil and gas industry.
It was the fifth time when the ChelPipe Group took part in the Iran Oil Show. The company implements its long-term strategy of development where special attention is paid to the search for new partners and customers in the Middle East. In the long term prospect, the company may become one of the leaders of this and other dynamically developing world markets.
White metallurgists of the ChelPipe Group, based on their wide experience of participation in exhibitions, can attract attention by vividly demonstrating their strengths. ChelPipe’s stand was very popular among representatives of the largest companies from all over the world. Key negotiations with partners of the ChelPipe Group took place here as well as the first acquaintance with future clients of the company. The company’s exposition was visited by such Iranian companies as National Iranian Oil Company, Iranian Oil Engineering Company and Petroleum Development and Engineering Company. The stand was visited by the delegations from the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Pakistan, Italy and Germany.
- The ChelPipe Group’s stand looked very stylish and up-to-date. The attention of many people was drawn to the corporate video devoted to the ChelPipe Group’s investment projects which was broadcast on a giant screen and undoubtedly the guests were impressed by VR-glasses with the help of which they were able to go on a virtual excursion in the «Height 239» workshop, the leader of White Metallurgy, and the ETERNO Plant, according to Anna Ashenbreiner, ETERNO Sales Manager who was working at the stand.
The participants of the Iran Oil Show became aware of all the range of ChelPipe’s products: shutoff valves, fittings, oil extraction equipment. Seamless pipes applied in the oil and gas, petrochemical, construction, power and other industries were much in-demand.
- We received evidence that the Iranian business is interested in cooperation with the Russian manufacturers and that it needs the ChelPipe Group’s products, says Anna Ashenbreiner.
The immediate goal of the Group is to transform the preliminary arrangements into specific business relations, having made one more important step to the development of the market of the Middle East.
