Past event: Oil & Fuel Supply Chain Security Conference 2020

The World's Only Conference Dedicated To Countering Pipeline Tapping, Illegal Bunkering and Oil & Fuel Security Breaches

We are delighted to announce the third annual Oil and Fuel Supply Chain Security conference, taking place between 26-28 May 2020 in London, UK. Recognised as the world's only international forum focused on this vital subject, the 2020 conference comes at important time for national and international oil companies, as well as the experts working to combat organised crime and fraud.

The scale of the challenge facing governments and companies in relation to oil and fuel security is becoming increasingly stark. Nigeria, for example, lost as much as 22 million barrels of oil to theft in the first half of 2019 alone.

The importance of the task ahead of us has been made all the more clear this year in the wake of the 2019 Tlahuelilpan pipeline explosion, and the attack on the Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais. We must respond to these physical security threats and, increasingly, to cyber security threats too. The sheer diversity of threats and the breadth of the challenge ahead of us makes an international knowledge-sharing forum of this kind all the more vital.

Topics under consideration this year include, but are not limited to:

  • Prevention of mid and down-stream theft
  • UAV's both as a surveillance solution, and a threat to be countered
  • The importance of cyber security in preventing cyber OT attacks
  • Tracking/tracing methodologies, and countering adulteration
  • Maritime security - countering piracy and ship-to-ship transfers

Attend Conference to:

  • Identify loss and manipulation within the supply chain
  • Adopt security and surveillance technology to monitor and protect transportation and storage assets
  • Explore solutions from fuel dyes to molecular marking in order to prevent subsidy abuse and fuel fraud
  • Understand the cyber threat to oil and fuel transportation infrastructure and how to deliver the protection required
  • Protect brand reputation by adopting new quality assurance strategies for LNG, crude oil, lubricants and fuels
  • Interact with key partners in the fight against oil and fuel smuggling to develop an integrated response to this challenge
  • Adopt technology-enabled solutions to improve investigations and prosecutions
  • Discover new and emerging solutions that can help you deliver enhanced security to protect pipelines from tapping
  • Stop the trade and usage of illicit or adulterated fuels in your country
