6th LPG Trade Summit

31 Oct-02 Nov, 2011 - Istanbul, TURKEY

Hilton Istanbul










Dear colleague,


It is my honor to invite you to join us at the 6th LPG Trade Summit in Istanbul. As the Host & Sponsor of the summit, we see this platform as an opportunity to raise the awareness on benefits of LPG and to seek cooperation for better business practices in the global LPG industry. It is our hope and belief that the conference will help us to achieve this vision.


As we all know, we face more complex challenges than generations past. We are all actors of a global marketplace, where we all share opportunities and risks of global economy. Oil and gas wells, traders on Wall Street, seamen of tanker ships, cylinder gas and autogas consumers are all interlinked. Cooperation is needed to reach common goals and to meet high expectations of our consumers.


Now, while the challenges today are different, we have to find new ways of doing business: How do we increase efficiency and productivity while reducing the cost? How do we make our products more environment-friendly? There's going to be a lot of debate about how we can build strategies between end-users, producers, ship-owners, traders and all the other important actors to make our industry more sustainable and how we harness the innovative potential to create new jobs.


We all understand there's no magic to do it. There will be all sorts of debates. That's why we are going to be in Istanbul this fall, to share our experiences, to find solutions on our common problems and seek cooperation to enhance our capabilities to serve even better our consumers in the future.


I look forward to welcoming you all in Istanbul for 6th LPG Trade Summit.


Yağız Eyüboğlu
General Manager



A Global LPG Meet in Istanbul!


"For some years, forecasters have predicted a step increase in LPG export supplies as new projects started up in the Middle East and Africa. It was expected to happen through 2009 - 2010 but instead global LPG exports in 2009 were below 2008 levels and exports in 2010 were up only 1%. The LPG capacity was there but lack of feedstock and operating problems meant that the new facilities were underutilized. Now there are signs that LPG production in the Middle East is finally starting to lift off, especially in countries like Qatar and Abu Dhabi. Global LPG exports in 2011 could well be up by approaching 10% with a further increase of around 5% in 2012, largely driven by expanding exports from the Middle East. Beyond that the export growth switches from the East to the West - particularly Africa but also the US Gulf.


So where will the new LPG export supply go? The East was thought unable to take all the extra supply volumes and the US Gulf was expected to absorb the Eastern LPG length. Now with the advance of shale gas production in the USA, and a consequent rise in gas liquids output, the US Gulf no longer imports LPG and has itself become a significant propane exporter. This means a reappraisal of LPG markets in the East and the West (including Turkey) to examine their potential to take markedly higher LPG volumes - and which demand sectors in particular this will impact.


In the past petrochemicals have been seen as the sector that will balance the LPG market. However last year LPG demand in Global petrochemicals grew by just 2%, and that was entirely due to greater LPG consumption in Saudi Arabia as new projects came on-stream. Petrochemicals clearly has a role to perform in the future LPG market but the extent of its role will be a function of price."

LPG consumption has exceeded 2 million tons in Turkey

Posted on : 21 Oct, 2011


The Turkish LPG market continues to be significant with the consumption of about 2 million 121 thousand 747 tons, from January- July in 2011. Also recent news on  Istanbul Gas* Cylinder Manufacturing Plc’s plan to start distributing liquid petroleum gas (LPG) indicates that Turkey is rising as one of the most important LPG markets. In terms of both the amount of LPG used for transportation and LPG vehicles, Turkey ranks first in Europe and second in the world after South Korea. As a result of its strategic geographical position, Turkey, is now a major industrial investment hub- extending like a bridge between the continents of Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.


For that reason, CMT’s 6th LPGtrade Summit on 31 October -2 November 2011 has chosen Istanbul , Turkey as the venue for this annual LPG  industry gathering that presents in-depth insights from major producers/exporters from Middle East and Russia, as well as key global importers . In keeping with past practices of delivering unparallel networking opportunity, a grand Gala Dinner, at the Rahmi M. Koc Industrial Museum and hosted by AYGAZ, has been specially arranged for conference participants.


A new addition to this year's program is a separately bookable workshop on "LPG Shipping Economics and Risk Management." The full-day program on 2 November is led by Dr Amir Alizadeh, BSc, Msc, PhD.

Will Shale Gas Hamper LNG Imports? Find Out More at the 6th LPGTrade Summit

Posted on : 04 Oct, 2011

The emergence of shale gas here has literally bumped LNG to the back burner. Now that the unconventional gas found a mile beneath the earth's surface can by drilled out using hydraulic fracturing, it has changed America’s energy picture. Estimates are that 100 years of the stuff now exists, which has put a damper on LNG imports that were once thought to be the future darling of natural gas.


(Source: EnergyBiz, Sep 20, 2011)


With an upsurge in shale gas production and rise in the gas liquids output, the US has become self-sufficient in LPG. Further, the US is a propane exporter now. In light of these developments, CMT welcomes Mr. Macgill James, Manager, Waterborne LPG Trading, ConocoPhillips, to present his topic entitled, “Opportunities/Threats Arising from US' Shale Gas Development- On Infrastructure, Production, Exports and Demand Markets.”


Mr. Macgill James’s presentation will offer insights on:

- Infrastructure investment requirement & shift in trade flows

- Expectation on increased NGL production & USGC exports

- Prospects from the petrochemical feedstock market

- Potential impacts to waterborne trade flows

6th LPG Trade Summit in Istanbul explores growth outlook & emerging African LPG market

Posted on : 22 Aug, 2011


LIQUEFIED petroleum gas (LPG) is said to be an efficient source of energy and the government has been advocating switching to it from electricity. But in the past few days gas users have gone through the frustration of gas unavailability, at a time when temperatures have dropped significantly.


According to the government and gas suppliers, the cold weather has led to higher demand for gas and the supply has run out. Gas sales typically peak in winter.


For the government, the increase is not necessarily a bad thing, as the Department of Energy’s deputy director-general of hydrocarbons and energy planning, Tseliso Maqubela, said this week.


It means more people are using gas instead of electricity, and that augurs well for efforts to curb power consumption. The department encourages residential consumers to use LPG for heating and cooking.


But this surge, especially in winter months, leaves the government and the energy industry with a big task — how is this demand going to be met? It is well and good to push consumers to use gas, but that drive is pointless if they are not going to find it, as is the case now.


(Business Day, 8 Jul 2011)


As suggested in article above, it is quite clear that gas supplies will continue to remain tight, chiefly due to efforts by regional government to curb power consumption as well as encourage consumers to use LPG. This state of affairs not only lead to increased demand and imports, but also greater LPG production in the African continent, with PetroSA increasing its’ production and even in Angola and Nigeria.


It is therefore apt that the 6th LPG Trade Summit to be held in Istanbul’s Hilton Hotel, on 31 October – 2 November, presents informed insights on the LPG economy in Africa with specific topics focusing on the region. This summit will among others, feature presentations on the current status of the LPG sector; the impact on competitiveness of the regulatory and policy frameworks; future local production, plus imports and demand scenarios. Speakers from across the LPG value-chain will also be unveiling opportunities and challenges confronting this exciting sector.


If you want to have the latest market updates or meet with the movers and shakers of the LPG industry, then this is your must attend global event.

LPG consumption in Turkey stood at an estimated 3.68mn tons, representing 17.8% of total fuels consumed

Posted on : 27 Jun, 2011


Unlike many European countries, LPG is a very popular type of fuel in Turkey. The Turkish LPG market ranks 14th in the world (1.5% of worldwide consumption in 2009) and 2nd in Europe, trailing only Russia. In 2010, LPG consumption stood at an estimated 3.68mn tons, representing 17.8% of total fuels consumed in Turkey. 85% of the LPG that reaches the Turkish consumer is imported, coming mostly from Algeria, Kazakhstan, Russia, Norway and Nigeria. The segmental split of LPG consumption in 2010 was 68% auto-LPG, 29% cylinder LPG and 3% bulk. Aygaz maintained its market leadership position in 2010, with 1.04mn tons of LPG sold and an overall market share of 29%. Aygaz services the Turkish market with the Aygaz and Mogaz (100% subsidiary) brands.
