The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference 2019

The third The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference, organised by Flagship Events, took place at the Atlantis, the Palm, Dubai, on 16th October 2018, with a full house in attendance. The event attracted a top-quality audience of more than 250 people, including delegates from all the leading tanker owners and operators from across the region. The packed Conference heard from a host of top speakers from different segments of the tanker business and support sectors.

The Conference took as its theme Getting the most out of more positive markets. A number of critical issues, as well as opportunities, were highlighted, and in particular concern about the 2020 sulphur cap and the problems associated with installing exhaust gas scrubbers was evident. Keynote addresses were given by Nikolas Tsakos, chairman of Intertanko, and Ali Shehab, deputy chief executive of Kuwait Oil Tanker Company.

The case for a more optimistic assessment of the tanker business was persuasively made by some of the most influential and expert figures in the business. These included Captain Abdulkareem Al Masabi, chief executive officer, ADNOC Logistics & Services; Captain Anoop Kumar Sharma, chairman and managing director, The Shipping Corporation of India; Tarik Al Junaidi, chief executive, Oman Shipping Company; Khamis Juma Buamim, managing director and group chief executive, Gulf Navigation; and Chris Peters, chief executive, E Ships. Other speakers who made a big impact, in discussing support infrastructure and services, included Petros Doukas, chairman, Capital Partners; Rajiv Agarwal, chief executive, Essar Ports, Tim Smith, director, Maritime Strategies International; and Gaurav Moolwaney, executive director, Standard Chartered. This session was chaired by Captain Jitendra Misra, from Emarat Maritime.

The date and location of the fourth annual The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference has now been confirmed. It will take place on Tuesday 22nd October at Atlantis The Palm in Dubai, with an opportunity for speakers and attendees to network informally at a special reception afterwards. Over the past three years The Maritime Standard Tanker Conference has been held the day after the market leading TMS Awards, to maximise attendance and ensure high profile participants, and this will be the case again in 2019.
