ME-TECH 2021

Middle East Technology Forum for Refining & Petrochemicals 15–17 February 2021

Dear Colleagues,

2020 is presenting the petroleum industry with many challenges, leaving many to wonder what the global economic environment will look like post-COVID19. The ever-evolving industry was already transitioning before the current crisis resulting in organisations struggling to stay competitive in the unstable market.

Looking to 2021, there are many unknowns but one thing is certain – the industry will pull together during and after this crisis. ME-TECH 2021 will focus on the most important topics in downstream, including challenges that are evident now and longer-term ones undefined. Networking and open roundtable discussions and debates will be key features during the forum to encourage knowledge sharing and a supportive environment for all. We very much hope you can join us next year at the 11th edition of ME-TECH – Middle East Technology Forum for Refining & Petrochemicals.

Best wishes from everyone at Euro Petroleum Consultants.
