Middle East petrochemical producers to gather for major downstream event

ME TECH 2018 Networking at the Honeywell UOP StandME-TECH 2019 will be held from 26-28 February at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, and will welcome many vital oil and gas players to discuss their latest technical achievements and trends in the downstream sector

Participants will include Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), BAPCO, Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries Company, KPC, KNPC, KIPIC, ORPIC, Saudi Aramco and SABIC, among others. The event will also welcome a large delegation from the Middle East, Europe, North America, Far East and South-East Asia.

Stefan Chapman, vice-president at Euro Petroleum Consultants, said, “We are honoured and privileged to welcome ADNOC as a strategic partner for ME-TECH 2019. We look forward to hearing from senior representatives of regional refiners and petrochemicals producers as well as almost all of the leading licensors and technology providers active in the GCC.”

“The event will include several high-level panel discussions focused on key issues in the downstream sector, which will be moderated by Süleyman Özmen, leading independent expert consultant,” he added.

Daniel Carter, director, global consultancy at industry heavyweight Wood, stated, “The changes in bunker fuel sulphur through the IMO legislation are rapidly approaching. We see a number of customers looking at how to tackle this challenge through residue upgrading projects.”

“Many national oil companies are also looking to diversify their portfolio across the refining and petrochemical value chains to balance crude oil exports as economic drivers. There remain to be large incentives to improve profitability in the Middle East, as well as driving the best practice in operations and maintenance,” he stated.
