Global downstream business leaders - Rethinking technology to enhance industry performance and counteract market disruptors
Session Location: Al Maared Hall
  • Global downstream business leaders - Rethinking technology to enhance industry performance and counteract market disruptors

    • How will technologies evolving today underpin products and profitability for refineries and petrochemical plants tomorrow?  What can the industry expect from today’s solution providers in the next 5-10 years?
    • Connected performance technology is shifting the dynamics of the industry from the industrial internet of things (IIOT), smart and connected assets, cloud engineering, predictive analytics and big data collation and analysis.  What further advances can we expect in the refinery and petrochemical plant in the next 5-10 years?  What will be the challenges and what will we be doing differently?
    • With recent European announcements of bans on the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040, is the rise of electric vehicles set to create the biggest market disruptor of all time?  How is fuel technology evolving and positioned to counteract the shift?
    • What market impact can we expect from the International Maritime Organisation (IMO’s) 2020 global sulphur cap of 0.5% on marine fuels?  What does this mean for the refining industry and how can technology play a pivotal role in the ongoing challenge of providing clean fuel solutions?
    • Transforming R&D projects into commercially viable and available products.  Is existing technology continuing to push the boundaries and aide the development of industry integration?  As an industry are we currently investing enough in technology research and innovation?
