China, as the world’s biggest energy consumer, has an abundant of unconventional gas, such as shale gas which is exploitable reserves of 26 trillion cubic meters, as much as that found in the United States. There are abundant of unconventional gas resources in China but these resources need the opportunity to develop such as government encourage. In 2011, 12th Five-Year Plan, China’s government will build up flexible the political environment to attract more entrants to developing unconventional gas resource. Unconventional gas resource are expected to dedicate the future of energy sector across global, including China. Many international operators are attracted by the big potential market and get ready to explore China market.
China completed its first horizontal shale gas well, after 11 months of drilling, as the world’s biggest energy consumer seeks to tap its reserves of the cleaner-burning fuel.“Once we start large-scale production, shale gas won’t be an unconventional fuel for China anymore and it will play an important role to supply China’s energy needs,” Che Changbo, said, deputy director of the Ministry of Land and Resource’s oil and gas strategy center.
In Asia, Indonesia and India have the quite experience about unconventional gas exploration and production. Having plentiful of unconventional gas reserves is the major reason for these countries to develop but the flexible market access principles also stimulate unconventional gas booming in these countries. Sharing the advanced experience and technologies from global players is very helpful for Asian emerging market, particularly in China.
2nd Unconventional Gas Asia Summit 2011, which will be held on Dec 6th-9th, 2011, Beijing, China, is the international event focusing on Asia market including the policy changing, technical innovation and the project updating.

Dubai, UAE, 26 April 2011 – The study of Production Chemistry has been a major research area for the past decade and attracted support from both industries and governments. Industry experts have been constantly carrying out practical and desk in-depth research and work on the flow assurance and effects of scale, wax, asphaltene and hydrates. Technologies have been developed to assist oil and gas companies in designing their own treatments to improve their own production and strengthen their position on the market.
This workshop will discuss advances in prediction techniques for multiphase flow in pipelines, integrated flow assurance model and a step forward in designing complex oil and gas fields. We will take a look at simulation, monitoring and metering methods to minimize risks in flow assurance projects and we will review current challenges that require immediate response from industry professionals.
This exclusive 2011 Global Production Chemistry Interactive Technology Workshop will launch an extensive international platform for learning and networking to exchange the brilliant expertise and work that have been done by the major industry pioneers. It is designed for all dedicated professionals who have been involved in Production Chemistry for a number of years and possess deep knowledge to share.
Praxis Global Research invites industry professionals to join our senior gathering in Istanbul and gain the insight of the latest Production Chemistry developments in Saudi Arabia, Italy, Russia, UK, Iran, USA, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Brazil, Indonesia, Argentina, UAE, Oman, Canada and Turkey.

With Asian led revival of global economy, the prospects for PVC look highly positive. Accounting for over 50% of PVC output, the housing sector has been the driving force behind the PVC market surge. Improving margins is yet to be complemented by steady demand due to regional volatilities. In this scenario, which region has the potential to drive PVC growth and what exactly are the roadblocks for the sector? What are the chances for market recovery in the west? What is driving the PVC market in emerging economies?
CMT’s 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets conference meets in Istanbul-Turkey on 10-11 June 2010 to provide high-level insights for resin producers/traders, plastic additives suppliers, compounders, end-users and technology providers alike to aid them in developing strategic decisions going forward.
The conference will commence with vital updates on the world economic situation and outlook for 2010/11. This will pave the way for key sessions on “Changing Vinyl Trade Patterns” by Nexant Chemsystems and “Challenges Facing the European PVC Industry, and PVC Production Cost Competitveness” shared by Arkema
The 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets will also focus on prospects of PVC markets and trends from leading PVC producers/traders including Formosa Plastics, Arkema, PETKIM Petrokimya, Egyptian Petrochemical, Vinmar International, Market Report Company and DCW Ltd. In addition, CTC Maroc will share the outlook in emerging markets in North & West Africa while Instituto do PVC will provide insights on the demand coming from Brazil’s infrastructure plan & opportunities for “green” PVC. Turkey’s Esen Plastik will address the challenges of PVC materials sourcing from a customer’s perspective. Other regional and domestic markets to be covered include Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia, Middle East, Asia, USA, and Brazil. The end-user session at the conference will also include the outlook for plastic pipes and profiles as well as medical applications.
With consumer demanding more environmentally friendly product, will PVC demand be substituted by other “green” products, and how big is the market for “green” PVC? Participants at the conference will receive updates on bio-based plasticizers from Danisco’s Sales Manager for plastic additives, as he discusses technology innovations, major applications and growth trends. ChemOrbis will introduce the e-commerce solutions dedicated for the plastics industry during the conference.
The 5th Global Chlor-Vinyl Markets is attracting participation from leading executives from the chlor-vinyl industry, including traders, producers, shipping & storage companies, EPC companies, plasticizers, stabilizers, additives producers, pipes, profiles, film & sheets, windows, flooring converters/ manufacturers and more. Those keen to gain latest insights on global chlor-vinyl/PVC market outlook should attend the conference in Turkey at www.cmtevents.com.
