Energy & Sustainability Forum

Decarbonising the Downstream Industry

Welcome to the ESF North America Energy & Sustainability Forum Houston

Leading industry experts will gather in Houston, Texas from 20th – 22nd June at the only conference dedicated to downstream decarbonization in refining and petrochemicals.

ESF North America, is the latest in a series of energy transition focused conferences to support the collaborations, discussions, and development of a sustainable energy future in which the oil and gas downstream industry continues to play a leading role.

As North American refiners and petrochemical producers position themselves for a low carbon transition, and with no silver bullet to achieve net zero, the industry must form a coherent approach to take advantage of all opportunities. The challenge to invent new technologies, new supply chains, new value chains and new markets has never been so complex.

Here’s some headlines of what you can expect across the three-day conference:

  • Not one, but two pre-conference seminars hosted by Wood and Honeywell UOP
