EVENT - BBTC MENA & ME-CAT 2020 by Euro Petroleum Consultants
This year, NexantECA's Andrew Inglis and Thomas Heinrich will be part of the conversations taking place at the BBTC MENA & ME-CAT 2020 which will be held online and will include residue upgrading and catalyst technologies related topics and will give catalyst suppliers, licensors, contractors, service providers and operating companies the unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the sector.
In today's downstream industry increasing conversion to curb low-value fuel oil production remains a key objective for many existing and grass-root refining facilities. There is a clear drive and commitment on improving product specifications, increasing conversion, reducing emissions and increasing margins - Upgrading the Bottom of Barrel remains of the utmost importance and central to achieving targets and results.
Along with that, catalytic processes are very much at the heart of all refineries and petrochemical complexes - with the continued drive for increased integration, the number of units using modern catalysts has increased significantly.
