On April 11, 2017 in Atyrau the 16th North Caspian Regional Exhibition “Global Oil & Gas Atyrau” will start its work

The Regional Exhibition “Global Oil & Gas Atyrau” is the largest industry event in West - Kazakhstan region.

This year especially increased business activity is expected in Atyrau since on April 11 two large-scale events: IV International Investment Forum “Atyrau Invest 2017” and the Regional Exhibition “Global Atyrau Oil & Gas” will start at one time.

2016 was marked by significant events in the oil and gas industry in Kazakhstan: the launch of Kashagan project and Tengiz production capacity expansion project, project budget of which exceeds $ 37 billion. Large-scale initiatives will ensure the activation of many related enterprises of West Kazakhstan region, since their implementation will require both the attraction of new equipment and the expansion of contractors’ base. In the context of the current activities in the oil sector, the Global Oil & Gas Atyrau exhibition is the localization and networking of specialists and contractors to address the pressing problems of the industry.

The Investment Forum is held under the auspices of the Local Administration of the region. According to the first Deputy Akim Gumar Dyussembayev “Atyrau region is one of the most rapidly developing regions of Kazakhstan. Here more than 600 medium-sized and large enterprises operate, their share in the total industrial production of the country is about 24%, and from which more than 30% - with the involvement of foreign capital”. Investments are attracted not only in oil facilities, but also in social facilities and mass cultural and leisure facilities. Last year’s forum attracted a record number of investments in the region, uniting the platforms for exhibiting and negotiating will have a positive impact on overall efficiency.

Traditionally, in parallel with Global Oil & Gas Atyrau will be held the 16th North Caspian Building and Interiors Exhibition - Atyrau Build 2017 will be held. This symbiosis has already proven its efficiency with its 16-year history. Expanded exhibitions and combination of activities with the investment forum required new territorial solutions.

The exposition will be evolved in the new Exhibition Centre in Atyrau, provided by “ABS Modular Limited” LLP. This platform meets the international technical requirements and has the necessary infrastructure. Moving to a new platform was dictated by technical requirements of the exhibitors - design solutions of the centre will allow them to place large-size machinery on the specialized platform outside the pavilion and equipment - inside the building, to hold presentations and seminars in a specially equipped area. Moving to a new site became a positive impulse for the exhibition expansion. The availability of the specialized exhibition and conference area is a good reason for holding expo events on a variety of topics and areas that will be an effective tool to address current regional needs and demonstrate the achievements and potential of Atyrau region.

Global Oil & Gas Atyrau is a unique international event that has no analogues in the region. Thus, in Global Oil & Gas Atyrau Exhibition the companies from Azerbaijan, Germany, Denmark, Iran, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, the Netherlands, Oman, Poland, Russia, the USA, Turkey, Ukraine, Switzerland annually participate.
