Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2011/07/17 - Fleming Gulf is delighted to announce its 2nd Annual Global Petrochemicals Technology Summit, a niche and industry specific conference designed to bring together industry experts and thought leaders - FlemingGulf.com.
Fleming Gulf Conferences, a leading business intelligence and event services company, is delighted to announce its 2nd Annual Global Petrochemicals Technology Conference – the sequel to our highly successful and well attended event – scheduled to take place from 18 – 20 October, 2011, in Doha, Qatar.
“A new trend has recently emerged in the Middle East, with a shift from abundant low cost natural gas feedstock to the naphtha feedstock, which provides more value additions. This trend has come about as the result of a variety of factors, including the rapid depletion of natural gas reserves, increasing emphasis on alternative uses of natural gas and increasing demand for downstream products that can be obtained via naphtha but not by natural gas. As a result, more companies are opting for the naphtha route in petrochemical production.” – Business Wire.
The implications of such trends, and the challenges and opportunities presented by this ever-changing industry will be discussed by industry veterans from around the world – at the 2nd Annual Global Petrochemicals Technology Conference – through presentations, case studies and first hand discussions. The likes of Dr. Dhaval Shah from SABIC Innovative Plastics (USA), Dr. Pawan K. Bassi from Chevron Phillips Chemical Co LP (USA), Anwar Husen from BG Group (UK), Rob Parry from BASF, Martijn Vogelzangfrom from Lyondellbasell Industries (Germany), and many more, will address an audience of over 120 leading energy professionals who will be present.
John Kibler, Director of Corporate Development at Materia, Inc. (and attendee of the 1st Annual) said,“I think the event had a great agenda and was very well organized/ executed. Several talks were outstanding. All in all, it was a great conference and I’m glad that I attended.”
Broadly summarized, this forum will highlight the future of innovation and technologies in the downstream industry, impart knowledge about alternative feedstocks available for petrochemical producers, discuss solutions for successful integration and catalyst development, provide insight into technological advances and wastewater treatment for petrochemical plants, and much more!
