Helium 2016

October 21, 2016

«Кempinski Мoika 22» Saint Petersburg

Dear Colleagues!

CREON Energy has the pleasure of inviting you to the Fifth International «Helium 2016» Conference.

Date: October 20-21, 2016
Venue: Kempinski Hotel Moika 22, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Gazprom continues the implementation of its Eastern Gas Program, with Russian and foreign specialists being involved. Construction of infrastructure facilities has already started, early works are in progress at the site, qualified staff training program has been launched at the best Russian high schools. But the demand for Helium is falling despite all expectations, and the trend might turn out to be long-standing. The oversupply of Helium is in its second year now in the global market, and the reasons are generally well-known. After having lived through the shortage in 2011-2013, the consumers learnt to use Helium more efficiently, to apply new technologies for repeated use and to find replacement gases. The low demand has become a surprise for producers who were actively expanding capacities and commissioning new plants in 2014.

Further market growth is hampered by the low development rates in the Helium industry, the limited number of new applications for the gas, and the customers’ tendency to save on Helium consumption. As a result, the following questions arise: will there be space in the world market for the Russian Helium produced in the Eastern Siberia and the Far East by the time Gazprom completes its giant project? Will 60 million cubic meters per year of Helium from Amur GPP find the demand, taking into consideration the growing competition and the announcement of new projects? When will the supply/demand balance be achieved?

CREON Energy is proud to be the first organizer of the conference in the Eastern Europe, where the leading players and market experts can discuss the status and prospects of the Helium industry, to share development plans and to conclude mutually beneficial co-operation contracts. Only once a year at our event, Gazprom experts present data on the implementation of the key project for the industry - the construction of the Amur Gas Processing Plant in the Far Eastern Federal District, which will undoubtedly influence the entire Helium market and rebalance it.

Regular Conference participants include representatives of Air Liquide, Air Products, AustroFIN, Bashneft, Chromium, Cryo, Cryogenmash, Fujifilm, Gazprom, Gazprom Export, Gazprom Gazenergoset, Gazprom Pererabotka, Geliymash, Grasys, HMS Neftemash, Iceblick, Irkutsk Oil Company, ISG, Itochu Corporation, Iwatani Corporation, JAPEX, Linde, Matheson, Medcryoservice, NII KM, PGNiG, Praxair, Sapio Group, Sauer Compressors, Tehgas, TehMed, VNIPIgazdobycha, Westfalen Group etc.
