Oil and Fuel Theft Conference

18 April, 2018 - 19 April, 2018, Geneva, Switzerland

Oil and Fuel theft is a major, global challenge in our industry, with the repercussions of this illicit activity being wide spread from ecological damage to depriving governments of customs and tax revenues and actively funding criminal activities.

Estimates suggest that as much as $133 billion worth of oil and fuel is stolen, adulterated, or fraudulently transferred at some point in its supply chain annually. This is a criminal activity that destabilizes markets, states, and even regions; it can no longer be ignored. The new, 'lower for longer' oil price has further incentivised the need to tackle this cost to governments and private companies active in the hydrocarbons industry.

The Oil & Fuel Theft Summit 2018 will create discourse between high-level stakeholders within the hydrocarbons industry on how we can fight this revenue depriving crime and provide insight on the current solutions available such as: molecular marking, flow management and surveillance. By encouraging collaboration and drawing attention to this issue, we hope that the tide will start to turn on this criminal enterprise.

How Oil and Fuel Theft Happens:

  • Tapping Pipelines
  • Illegal Bunkering
  • Ship-to-Ship Transfers
  • Piracy
  • Bribing Corrupt Officials
  • Smuggling and Laundering
  • Adulteration

Join Oil and Fuel Theft 2018 to:

  • Apply insight from case studies on countering oil and fuel theft from around the world
  • Explore solutions from fuel dyes to molecular marking
  • Interact with key partners in the fight against oil and fuel theft to develop an integrated response to this crime
  • Hear case studies on dealing with the ecological damage caused by oil and fuel theft
  • Discover how authorities from across the world, including the Iraqi government are preventing terrorist organisation using this crime to fund their operations
  • Explore strategies for naval cooperation in countering oil and fuel piracy and illegal bunkering in regional hot-zones
