IRPC to tackle the downstream industry’s toughest challenges with dual 2019 locations

IRPC Europe rebranded as IRPC EurAsia

 

HELSINKI, FINLAND (Dec. 12, 2018) – The International Refining and Petrochemical Conference (IRPC) will address the challenges facing the global hydrocarbon processing industry at two strategically situated conferences in 2019.

With conference locations—Helsinki, Finland, and Houston, Texas—chosen to meet the needs of professionals in Eurasia and the Americas, IRPC will provide a high-level technical forum in which key players in the petrochemical and refinery sector will meet to share knowledge and learn about best practices and the latest industry advancements.

IRPC EurAsia—formerly IRPC Europe—will be held in Helsinki, Finland. The rebrand better reflects the international scope of the conference’s content while the underlying technical presentations will continue to be of the highest quality, backed by Hydrocarbon Processing, the HPI’s leading publication.

Lee Nichols, editor of Hydrocarbon Processing, said, “The Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions represent two of the largest regions in capital construction investments. Both regions are investing hundreds of billions of dollars in new refining and petrochemical capacity to satisfy increasing demand for finished petroleum products. These facilities, which are among the most advanced in the world, are crucial in providing fuels that adhere to strict environmental regulations and chemicals that advance the standard of living for billions of people. The growth of capital investments, along with the advancements in adapting new technologies, in Asia and the Middle East demonstrates the global nature of the downstream processing industry. IRPC EurAsia will best reflect this convergence within our industry.”

The Call for Abstracts for IRPC EurAsia, to be held June 5-7, will remain open until Jan. 8, 2019. The conference will cover important topics and trends, such as the impact of IMO 2020; clean fuels/biofuels/alternative fuels; refinery/petrochemical integration; digitalization; energy efficiency; and more. Delegates will also have the opportunity to visit a local Neste facility.

For eleven years, Hydrocarbon Processing's IRPC has been the leading downstream technology event. For more information on these conferences, please visit HPIRPC.com.
