We are pleased to present MARE FORUM HOUSTON 2002, entitled A GLOBAL FORUM on the MARITIME TRANSPORTATION OF ENERGY: “IDENTIFYING THE PRIORITY POLICY ISSUES”.  The conference is set for November 18th & 19th 2002 at the Renaissance Houston Hotel Houston, Texas, U.S.A.

CONFERENCE GOAL:  Identify major marine transportation issues, which must be managed by government and industry, to meet short and long-term energy transportation needs.  Provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about, debate and influence the resolution of such issues with policy makers from industry and government.

THE ISSUE:  How will the international energy and maritime industries meet the future global demand?  Marine transportation of crude oil, petroleum products, LNG/LPG, coal and other energy products is essential to worldwide availability of energy for domestic and industrial use.  The volume of energy cargoes will continue to grow in order to meet growing demand.  The Forum will examine the many factors potentially impacting the social and economic environment, which will influence the way in which the energy and maritime industries will attempt to meet demand.

Set for the first time in the United States, THE VENUE for this Mare Forum Conference will be the Renaissance Hotel in Houston, Texas.  The United States is the world’s largest consumer of oil per capita. Houston is the energy center of the United States as well as the U. S. location of many shipping interests.
