gasworld is delighted to announce that Andrew Spiers, Senior Vice President of Nexant Asia, and Omar Germouni, Middle East Business Director of Air Liquide, will be speaking at the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Industrial Gas Conference in Dubai this December.

Spiers will be speaking about ‘The MENA Chemicals Business’ in the first session of the conference on Tuesday 8th December, 2015, which will be chaired by Naji Skaf, CEO of Gulf Cryo.

Spiers comments, “The Middle East petrochemical industry is undergoing significant change against the backdrop of changing global investments and a changed oil price environment. This will have implications for the prospects for projects built in the region over the next decade. It is timely to consider the implications of these changes on the regional industry and the effects this will have on the regional industrial gas business.”

Germouni’s presentation titled ‘Bringing Innovation to Developing Economies; a Must for our Industry’ is scheduled to begin the final day of the conference, in a session that will be exploring Growth Drivers for Merchant Markets.

Germouni said, “I look forward to the upcoming gasworld gathering in Dubai. The conference offers a unique opportunity to exchange information about the state of our industry and discuss the challenges we are facing. As a historical participant, Air Liquide is proud to move industries forward, leveraging on its innovative technologies, expertise and industrial excellence accumulated over the years.”

Delegates are invited to participate in three days of dynamic activity, including a cutting edge-conference featuring prestigious speakers, dedicated exhibition time, and valuable networking opportunities.
