We are pleased to announce the III International Conference “HEAVY CASPIAN” was held on September, 30, 2014 in Astana, Kazakhstan, Hotel “Kazzhol Astana”.

Active offshore development of the Caspian Sea resulted in booming of oil and gas industry and associated facilities in the regional countries. This calls for implementation of complex projects related to delivery and building of offshore platforms, artificial islands, oil refineries, pipelines, etc. At the same time, Caspian and Central Asia logistics is distinguished by a number of geographical and administrative features.
