The UK-headquartered EIC (Energy Industries Council) will communicate its plans to expand into China to capitalise on the growing Asian oil and gas markets when it returns to the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) in Perth.

The leading trade association for UK companies supplying goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, the EIC has again reserved a plot of prime floor space for AOG 2011 to house approximately 30 of the UK’s oil and gas leaders.

CEO of the EIC, Mike Major said the EIC would use Australia’s largest oil and gas exhibition as a platform to outline its new plans for Asia, which include the opening of a new office in China to enable the association’s Singapore office to concentrate on key markets for the UK supply chain such as Australia.

Mr Major said the UK pavilion would also showcase a host of innovative products and services designed to deliver greater economic value from Australasia’s oil and gas fields.

Among the companies set to exhibit in the UK pavilion is MSCM Ltd – a subsea manufacturer supporting the massive Gorgon Project off the coast of Western Australia – who will display a range of cutting edge hydraulic stabplates, hydraulic couplings, hydraulic flying leads, shuttle valves, block and bleed valves, and gas lift connectors.

Mr Major said the Australasian oil and gas market remained highly attractive to UK companies and many EIC members were eager to return to Perth in 2011 following the success of the UK pavilion at AOG 2010.

“The 2010 show provided members of the UK supply chain with excellent exposure to existing and new customers resulting in a host of new business leads and many confirmed orders. In the feedback we received from all the UK companies exhibiting, one said they even plan to set up a new office in Perth on the back of orders received at the show,” said Mr Major.

Scotland will also enjoy exposure to the Australasian market at AOG 2011 with the Scottish Development International again reserving a stand within the UK pavilion.

And the international participation will not be limited to the UK with companies from some 16 countries, including contingents from the USA, Norway, China and Italy, set to feature among the 450-plus exhibitors.

“AOG has grown to become not just the largest annual exhibition of its kind in Australasia, but a truly global oil and gas event and this is reflected in the many international associations, companies and groups that have confirmed their participation for 2011,” said AOG Exhibition Director, Bill Hare.

AOG 2011 will take place at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 23-25 February.
