Oil & Fuel Supply Chain Security Summit 2019
The vast and varied nature of the global oil and fuel supply chain presents a myriad of security challenges to governments and industry alike. Illicit activity within this lucrative industry’s supply chain costs government and industry billions, with estimates suggesting that the total cost to the global economy was in excess of $133 billion in 2017.
This institutionalised criminal activity is a serious worldwide problem, diverting billions of dollars away from government funds. Smuggling, laundering and adulteration not only divert state revenues but damage brand integrity and deliver substandard and often harmful products to the market. In many nations this is a multi billion dollar challenge which requires effective solutions to accurately identify minimal levels of dilution and differentiated fuels by illuminating the supply chain to isolate both intentional and unintentional fuel manipulation.
In 2018, we provided the first platform to address the mechanisms by which this criminal activity takes place. Our initiative identified that greater attention and efforts are needed in order to prevent oil and fuel products from entering the illegal market. In responding to this, the 2019 conference will deliver additional exploration of security and surveillance solutions to counter illegal bunkering, ship-to-ship transfers and the tapping of pipelines, storage facilities and other transportation infrastructure.
Join us in London from the 16-18th of April for the world’s only conference which addresses this challenge to governments and industry. London provides the perfect platform for this international conference, as we bring together experts from across the world to share their response in dealing with the proliferation of this activity.
