Connecting key buyers and sellers in the oil and gas downstream sector, Future Downstream is dedicated to driving forward innovation and digitalisation of the refining and petrochemicals industries.
At Future Downstream you will have the opportunity to meet with other oil and gas executives, operators, technologists and investors to discuss cutting-edge technologies and solutions to key stakeholders within the refining and petrochemical industry.
We will be looking at how oil and gas companies can transform downstream business with connected data and analytics to improve safety, reliability, efficiency, quality, and profitability.
How did they optimize plant operations for best in class performance and improved profitability; reduce variabilities, embrace IoT and predictive modelling to create an interconnected supply chain that can sense and respond to market changes.
No refiners are near to full-scale digital adoption. There is no widespread use of digital technologies and, as yet, little use of more cutting-edge digital technologies.
Refiners are implementing only a small portion of the digital spectrum and are seeing the most impact from digital in their maintenance and turnaround operations. However, the majority are not realizing the value they could from digital technologies and many are not even measuring digital value.
