St. Petersburg International Gas Forum (SPIGF)
The 7th St. Petersburg International Gas Forum (SPIGF) was held in St. Petersburg as part of Russian Energy Week. Leaders of the oil and gas industry from all over the world gathered at the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre for the SPIGF on 3–6 October 2017.
Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Kirill Molodtsov spoke about the importance of integrating the business programmes of forums into the concept of Russian Energy Week while addressing participants in the press conference devoted to the Gas Forum:
“This year, Russian Energy Week is being held in two cities, and the events in Moscow will be complemented by the events in St. Petersburg. This will create an ideal synergetic effect and allow for the maximum full coverage of the situation in the energy sector as a whole. In particular, the Gas Exporting Countries Forum will be held in Moscow, while the platform in St. Petersburg will demonstrate the practical successes of the industry, and all participants in the GECF meeting will visit the SPIGF to see the achievements of the largest Russian companies.”
