4:00 PM HOW TO STRUCTURE A NATIONAL FUEL MARKING PROGRAMME

·          This panel discussion will bring together government stakeholders typically tasked with creating and setting in motion a national program to mark fuel products and will seek to answer the following questions:
·          Setting realistic objectives: Understanding and scoping the nature and scale of the problem and what you want to achieve.
·          What constitutes best practice in conceiving and implementing a marking program?
·          Should you legislate to make the program mandatory?
·          Who is going to pay for it?  Can you get the national oil industry including multinational operators to fully or partially fund the program?  What’s in it for them?
·          Panellists: Government stakeholders who have implemented a successful marking programme
