In the last three months since we published the Autumn edition of Tank Storage Magazine, our team has had quite the whirlwind. As well as putting together this fantastic edition – the first for 2024 – we’ve been at tonnes of events worldwide so that our community can stay abreast of all the updates in the tank storage sector.
Since September (yes, it has been that long!) our team has been to the Tank Storage Association’s conference and trade show in Coventry, UK, World Hydrogen Week in the Netherlands, Gastech 2023 in Singapore, Port Tarragona’s (Spain) VII Med Hub Day, NISTM Woodlands in Texas, USA, and many more! So it’s safe to say that our team is very much looking forward to a bit of rest and relaxation over the Christmas break.
But, chances are, you’re reading this as we enter 2024, so here’s hoping the team is back up to full capacity, as we gear up for the energy infrastructure’s event of the year: StocExpo. Back for 2024, StocExpo will be held on 12-13 March in Rotterdam, and Tank Storage Magazine has got the inside scoop, with an exclusive sneak preview in our Winter edition. Don’t forget to register now.
We’ve also got some in-depth insights from speakers at this year’s StocExpo conference, put together by the Tank Storage team and FETSA. Conference sponsor, Advario, celebrates 40 years of Advario Gas Terminal with an exclusive interview with our team, and OCI’s Bowen Xu delves into emissions reduction – which is the crux of his presentation at StocExpo.
Not to mention, the Winter edition wouldn’t be complete without our annual Storage Outlook. This year, we’ve gathered terminal operators from around the globe to highlight their biggest challenges and successes for 2023, and share their plans for 2024. And new for 2024 is our Ports Outlook, where a selection of port authorities offer insight and advice to terminal owners and operators about what the future might hold.
Safe to say, there’s a lot of change happening, and the energy transition is at the forefront of most people’s minds.
So what can we do about it?
Well, Tank Storage Magazine’s membership model is community-led. That means we want to hear from you, our readers, about your biggest challenges, so that we can ensure our content is still hitting all the right spots. We like to think we’re pretty spot on when it comes to covering brand new terminal projects and expansions, but what about those other issues? Inflation? Digitalisation? Future fuel infrastructure? Are these things that keep you up at night? If so, we want to hear from you, so that we can tailor our in-print and online content to those challenges. After all, we know that the industry reads our journal because of the high-quality content within, but we need you to help us curate that.
You can get in touch online, as always, by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org but I’ll also be heading off to even more events in the new year, starting with International Energy Week on 28-29 February. You can find our full event listing online here and of course the whole team will be present at StocExpo on 12-13 March 2024.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this latest edition of the magazine, packed with exclusive interviews, global market analysis and technical features all designed to ensure your terminal is as safe, efficient and sustainable as it can be.
Be sure to register for StocExpo, and meet the team this March!
