Petrochemicals Market Evolution As The Subject of PRC Europe 2020

Posted by Julia


Downstream market issues will be discussed during closed-door Petrochemical and Refining Congress: Europe 2020. It will take place in Vienna, Austria, on the 28th-30th of September and gather oil and gas companies, EPCs, refineries and petrochemical plants, licensors, chemical companies, and governmental bodies to talk about global petrochemical products expansion.

Since 2010, demand for plastics doubled, and it keeps growing for other oil refining products. End-users need packaging, clothes, gadgets, fertilizers, medical equipment, and other types of petrochemicals production goods. The demand is forecasted to grow, and it is natural that alongside with the increase of production, the industry will be concentrating on how to digitalize the processes, improve construction and engineering, and make the production more ecologically friendly. So, as there is a global demand in the petrochemicals market evolution, oil and gas majors are interested in its' development and ready to share their opinion.

Senior Vice President Panel Discussion “Petrochemicals as the Largest Driver of World Oil Demand” will give an opportunity to make aware of worldwide experts opinions on the subject through the argumentation between panellists. During the discussion, speakers will make a strategic projects overview, discuss cost-effective means to match new petrochemical production capacity, and reason about the impact of petrochemical products expansion.
