Middle East Technology Forum for Gas Processing, Refining, Resid Upgrading & Petrochemicals (ME-TECH 2013), February 18- 20, 2013 || Dubai- FERTIL to present their Urea Project FERTIL-2 for the First Time

The leading Petroleum Conference & Consulting Company Euro Petroleum Consultants has announced the programme for ME-TECH 2013 - their annual Middle East Technology Forum. The event, taking place next February, will be the 3rd edition and will be held once more in the grand surroundings of the Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre in Dubai. The conference has proven to be the essential meeting place for the Middle East Downstream Industry and an excellent platform to keep up-to-date with the latest key projects & technologies in this important region.

The Forum will take place over two days; running with two parallel conference streams on each day.

Day 1 will focus on latest technological developments in the Gas Processing & Oil Refining sectors with a strong focus on the key global market factors and their impact on the industrial development in the Gulf region.

Special attention will be paid to the impact of the US shale gas boom on Global LNG and Petrochemicals; the effects of the high crude oil price: impact on margins; latest proven technologies for clean fuels and how fuel substitution & energy efficiency could lead to a Zero (net) carbon Refinery.

Important areas to be covered in these two streams also include monetization of unconventional gas (shale gas, coal-bed methane), project updates on large scale urea plants, main issues of sour gas field development, accelerating process & catalyst development for syngas.

One paper expected to attract high interest is the presentation from FERTIL, which will focus on their highly anticipated Urea project – FERTIL-2.

The plant, located in the Ruwais Industrial Zone, will produce ammonia and urea, with a production capacity of 2,000MTPD and 3,500MTPD respectively. The start-up of the plant is planned for January 2013 and is one of the most discussed fertiliser projects in the region.

Day 2 of the conference will provide insight into development trends, major producer perspectives, technology updates and optimization strategies in Residue Upgrading & Petrochemicals sectors.

The Residue Upgrading stream will also include presentations by Chevron Lummus Global, UOP, Grace and many more.

NRL Pakistan will present at ME-TECH 2013 a joint paper with UOP looking at investing in the heavy oil refinery expansion project.

Taking a closer look at the Petrochemicals Stream, there will be wide ranging topics presented such as Refinery & petrochemical integration; Technology updates: Ethylene Technology, Propylene production, Synthetic rubbers; Optimisation Strategies & Tools:  Life Cycle Management Tools, Beyond Asset Monitoring for Improved Reliability, Standardising & Accelerating R&D.

At the end of each day there will be a Round Table Discussions aimed to provide the delegates with the opportunity to exchange professional points of view, suggestions and ideas.

The Middle East Downstream Sector is facing numerous challenges including low margins, overcapacity and increasingly stringent quality environmental regulations (such as CO2 emissions) - meaning that the role of technology providers is now more important than ever to look at ways to improve efficiency and to process heavier sour crudes.

Adapted Technology solutions will help plant operators improve margins, move ahead of the competition and optimize their potential in this ever-changing market environment.

In the current climate, downstream industry professionals realize that in-depth industry knowledge, expertise and flexibility are imperative for success. For this reason specialised industry events are the ideal way for sharing ideas, exchanging practical advice/experience with their international colleagues, business partners and potential clients.

ME-TECH 2013 will be directly followed by the Russia & CIS Executive Summit – an event uniting top executives of the Downstream Industry, consultants, investors and financial institutions to discuss their strategies and business vision for the Russia & CIS markets.
