Make sure you play a part in the CIS downstream industries' favourite event

Construction and modernisation of oil refineries is currently big business in Russia and the CIS countries. Major capital expenditure is going into the modernisation of existing refineries linked to new European gasoline and diesel requirements. Refiners must install new hydro-treaters and upgrade units such as hydrocrackers and catalytic crackers to enable them to produce higher specifications of refined products without further delay.

The 17th edition of the Refining and Petrochemicals in Russia and the CIS Countries will bring the industry together under one roof to discuss how to drive this dynamic industry forward.

What's new for 2014?

  1. More presentations from refinieries and a dedicated petrochemicals stream giving you the opportunity to get to the crux of their technology needs
  2. Content is both strategic and technical allowing you to make the agenda your own
  3. Co-located with Base Oils and Lubricants which gives you the opportunity to network across the downstream market
  4. The Shutdowns and Turnarounds Focus day will equip you with learnings from real life case studies and scenario planning exercises helping you to maintain production and reduce revenue loss
  5. Roundtable discussions will be bigger and better than ever before. This year there will be more topics to chose from and you will have more time to meet and discuss development plans and industry needs with General Directors and Technology Directors

Over three days topics for discussion include:

  • Improving efficiency of shutdown performance at refining and petrochemical plants
  • Upgrading downstream assets to expand production capabilities and product ranges across the CIS
  • Maintaining competitiveness of petrochemical plants in the CIS to guarantee sustainable market share
  • Implementing best international practices in large scale project management in the CIS
