As our experience of Neftegaz 2012 reaches it’s third day I thought I’d share some more thoughts.
This the exhibition for Russian and ex soviet states i.e. Belarus, Kazakhstan etc for oil and gas exploration and production and visitors are here from all over.
One of the reasons Neftegaz is so well attended and important is that regional exhibitions have stopped working in Russia. To get the latest products and technology this is the only place to come.
The other reason is that Internet access only works in the major cities. It is easy for us to forget a time before the internet but it is generally not available anywhere else in Russia.
The MV&F team have been doing an amazing job dealing with all the enquiries. I have tried to help out but it’s difficult as I don’t speak Russian and very few speak any English!
