Euro Petroleum Consultants is happy to announce the 13th Russia & CIS Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference & Exhibition – RusBBTC, an event solely dedicated to technologies and practices for upgrading heavy oil and residue, the catalyst developments and equipment for residue upgrading. Annually, the conference gathers world's industry leaders of developing technology and solutions.


The 13th edition of RusBBTC will provide updates on the technology innovations and examples of proven implemented technologies for increasing conversion and will give an insight on the industry's future development plans.

Key topics include:
  • Main Drivers to Implement Bottom of Barrel Complexes in Russia & World-wide
  • Latest Update on Slurry Hydrocracking Processes – Development Perspectives, Risks & Opportunities
  • Thermal Processes – Coker Domination but what are the Other Options? Flexicoking, Visbreaking, Gasification?
  • RFCC Approved Technologies Increasing Economic Efficiency
  • Residue Upgrading & Power Generation Integration Opportunities
  • Hydrogen, Sulphur & Energy Balances – Integration & Optimisation
  • Bituminous Oils & Coal Processing to Liquids
  • Special Equipment & Tools
