Dominating the Russian market and held with great importance to international suppliers is the oil and gas industry at about 43 percent and still growing.

We are optimistic and hopeful to continue the success of the previous event held in June 2012,” said Erhard Wienkamp, member of the management board, Messe Düsseldorf.
Offering the most current technologies and equipment solutions will be the exhibitors for the production and processing of oil and gas. New products will be showcased by international companies from Europe, East Asia and the U.S. including world market leaders in addition to many prominent national suppliers.
