Greetings from Dubai!

Finally at home after hectic and very useful days in Dubai. Neste Oil was attending the Middle Eastern Base oil and Lubricants conference organized by ICIS. Again, it was interesting to hear views on the current lubricant and base oil markets. The times are tough again in the Eurozone and as more base oil capacity is coming on stream the competition will be fierce in the future too. The conference brought up information about challenges and opportunities in the market place by the well-known industry experts but also new announcements on base oil production capacity.

These conferences are marvelous opportunities for networking. It was great to meet our partners and customers as well as other industry experts. There were many familiar faces and I was lucky to meet new contacts too. It was a busy conference so if you feel that you didn’t get a chance to talk to Neste Oil representatives, don’t worry. You can send me an e-mail and I can forward it to the person you’d like to talk with.

See you again in the next conference!
