The 12th Annual Global Petrochemical’s Conference was a resounding success.

The event delivered the ideal platform to discuss the latest market developments, partnership opportunities, strategies and innovative technologies which are shaping the petrochemical industry and complexes of the future. In times when margins are tighter and we have to be more careful in how we are managing our Opex and Capex, it was encouraging to hear the optimism in the industry and how we can use these times to drive operational efficiencies.

Delegates heard from a number of operators including SABIC, CEPSA, Sinopec, Sidipec, BASF, Petrochemical Industries Company and Kuwait Petroleum on a range of different market perspectives. Everything from changing feedstock dynamics and North American Ethylene production to “on-purpose technologies” and refining and petrochemical integration were discussed.

The 12th Annual Global Petrochemicals Conference witnessed industry stakeholders from 50 companies, 4 continents and 22 countries gathering at the Steigenberger Hotel in Dusseldorf over the course of the 3 days.

As we continue to see Ongoing increases in global competitiveness, driven by recent developments in North American Ethylene production, “on-purpose” technologies such as CTO technology in China, oil price volatility and unsteady feedstock supply and demand dynamics, means The Global Petrochemicals Conference will continue to provide a platform for petrochemical industry executives and leaders to meet, expand their knowledge base, network with peers, build new relationships and re-connect with old friends.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 13th Annual Global Petrochemicals Conference in 2016!
