Asian Downstream Summit co-located with Refining & Petrochemicals Asia

Asian Downstream Summit is Asia’s most influential downstream technology event dedicated to Asia’s refining, petrochemical and specialty chemicals industry. As the anchor oil and gas event during Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), hosted by the Energy Market Authority of Singapore, the Summit is expected to bring together 1000+ industry professionals and covers mission-critical issues within downstream sector through extensive strategic and technical presentations.

The sole purpose of ADS is to bring together key industry operators, decision makers, technology vendors, solution providers, start-ups, and consultants all under one roof over two full days to discuss strategies and best practices for optimizing efficiency, increasing margins and achieving operational excellence in refining, petrochemicals and chemicals.

Asian Downstream Summit continues to be the main industry event for the industry and players looking to stay updated with the latest technologies and trends. With a wider focus on the petrochemical industry, including specialty chemicals, and co-located event Refining & Petrochemicals Asia Conference focusing on “Core Refining & Petrochemical Technologies”, Asian Downstream Summit 2019 will showcase case studies, panel discussions, technical presentations & workshops led by leading industry experts on the two-day conference programme.
