About MPGC

The iconic MPGC series will return Bahrain from March 23 – 24 2020, to be hosted by National Oil & Gas Authority (NOGA) and The Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO). 2020 will mark the 6th occasion that MPGC is being held in Bahrain and under the Patronage of His Excellency Shaikh Mohamed Bin Khalifa Al-Khalifa, Minister of Oil, Kingdom of Bahrain.

MPGC remains the region’s longest annual oil and gas industry gathering, a trusted brand and a hallmark of excellence in thought leadership.

The 28th annual event will see a convergence of the global oil market’s leading NOCs, IOCs, Traders, Refiners, Petrochemicals, Oil Storage, Financial Institutions and Technology companies, in a confluence of dialogue, debate and business interactions at the highest level.

MPGC 2020 will address the continuing uncertainty faced by the global oil markets, in the relationship between OPEC, US oil production and geopolitical fears in the Middle East. Refining margins, quality and pricing of HSFO, VLSFO and MGO in the wake of IMO 2020 implementation issues, and changes in global LNG market with Middle East countries looking for a large portfolio of both LNG imports and trade, will underscore discussion at MPGC 2020.

MPGC 2020 will take a deep dive into the challenges facing the oil and gas markets, in their path to manage the volatility and move towards stability.
