In the modern world of ever increasing energy prices and crude oil at $100 a barrel, applying best practice energy management techniques has more significance for refinery and downstream operators now than ever before. The Asian Downstream sector is also experiencing a move towards integrated petrochemicals and fuels refinery complexes to maximise economies of scale and fully exploit the numerous integration opportunities available.
Refiners also want residue conversion solutions that utilize proven technologies to attract the financing required to fund capital-intensive projects.
Building on over a decade of highly successful downstream events across Asia, ASIA-TECH 2012, running 10-11 October in Bangkok will create a platform for the leading solution providers and technology companies to present their latest cost-effective strategies to the key players across the Asian gas processing, oil refining, residue upgrading and petrochemical sectors.
Over two days of parallel sessions delegates will hear first hand presentations from leading NOCs and IOCs: PETRONAS, SK INNOVATION, IRPC, PTT PHENOL, KNPC and INDIAN OIL will be sharing their experiences on their development, strategy and projects.
Top independent consultants will be evaluating the market trends across all the downstream sectors, best investment opportunities and examining the challenges and opportunities ahead.
Leading specialists from UOP, Axens, Foster Wheeler, ExxonMobil and over twenty other technology, catalyst and equipment providers will be sharing their knowledge and offering their best solutions to improve the performance of your business. There will be special focus sessions on Maximising Energy Efficiency, Refinery-Petrochemical Integration and HSE & Risk Management Strategies.
An exhibition will run alongside the event in the networking area, allowing delegates to maximize their attendance by visiting up to 40 stands where suppliers will be holding demonstrations and displaying their latest products.
“ASIA-TECH gives innovators and end-users a platform to exchange views on cutting-edge downstream oil and gas technology solutions to improve margins and achieve operational excellence” said Suzanne Costello, Head of Events at Euro Petroleum Consultants (EPC).
Prior to the main conference Foster Wheeler will host a complimentary half day seminars on their latest technologies and solutions.
