Reuters Downstream Conference Is Coming In June

Never has downstream had to balance so many competing priorities. The pandemic has significantly disrupted the global refining, petrochemical, chemical and LNG markets, with supply and demand experiencing unprecedented fluctuations during 2020 and 2021. At the same time, the industry is also facing longer-term challenges related to technological advances, evolving regulations, and increasing concerns about climate change.

As the industry transitions to the next normal, US downstream must work smart with the resources and experience it has to optimise every decision made, every action taken capture ROI and drive success across 3 key areas: Reliability & Maintenance, Shutdown & Turnarounds and Engineering & Construction. ​

This June, 5,000+ petrochemical, refining, chemical and LNG leaders will descend on Houston, for the US’s only and most trusted destination of the full downstream value chain in 2022, Downstream USA 2022 (June 8-9th, Houston TX). Visit the event website to find out more here –
