SPIGF 2019 Enabling substantive dialogue between industry leaders
This year’s Gas Forum in St. Petersburg has set new records: more than 30,000 visitors from 55 countries, 535 exhibits and more than 5,500 delegates gathered on the banks of the Neva to discuss most relevant issues and strategic prospects of the gas industry as well as share their expertise and present innovative achievements.
On behalf of Wintershall Dea’s management team, CEO Mario Mehren, Thilo Wieland, the Executive Board member responsible for Russia and Torsten Murin, Managing Director Wintershall Dea Russia, took part in the International Gas Forum.
For the first time, Wintershall Dea contributed to the Forum not only as a participant but also as a partner, presenting the newly merged company with its own exhibition stand. Wintershall Dea showcased its Russian projects and activities from all over the world and held expert talks on technological innovation, digitalization and high standards which build the cornerstone of the company’s operations.
At the plenary session of the Forum on 3 October 2019, Mario Mehren underlined the importance of strategic partnerships in the energy sector.
At the Forum, Wintershall Dea and Gazprom Nedra signed a cooperation agreement, which has become a new important step in the trusted partnership with Gazprom going back almost 30 years.
Wintershall Dea takes its role as a socially responsible partner seriously. As a sign of the company’s commitment to promoting and supporting young talent, Torsten Murin took part as a jury member in the award ceremony of “A Glance into the Future”, an international competition for young scientists co-sponsored by Wintershall Dea.
