The event, kindly sponsored by Honeywell UOP, ExxonMobil, Axens, Air Liquide, Amec Foster Wheeler, Bechtel, PAS, DuPont, Schneider Electric, Shell Global Solutions & Criterion Catalysts & Technologies, brought together an important number of colleagues from around the globe.

The 2017 edition of ME-TECH was a great success – the event kicked off with a Pre- Conference Honeywell UOP Workshop on the 21st of February and the Conference took place on the 22nd and 23rd of February.

ME-TECH 2017 had a strong focus on the key issues facing the downstream Petroleum Industry: the renewed investment in light of stabilising crude prices, the renewed interest in the latest technology innovations and the potential impact of the future MARPOL Bunker Fuels Specification on the industry.

We had the privilege to hear from many of the major producers in the region – with updates on their strategies and key projects; from the role of refinery & petrochemicals integration in Borouge, the potential and future outlook of KNPC’s Clean Fuels Project, Sabic’s Crude Oil to Chemicals project through to Orpics’s Liwa Plastics Industries Complex, HSE for Major Projects by ENOC and YASREF’s experience with outsourcing Hydrogen System.
