BBTC MENA 2019
Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference
Welcome to BBTC MENA 2019
Euro Petroleum Consultants is pleased to announce BBTC MENA 2019 – Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference will take place from 10–11 December in Bahrain.
The growing importance of residue upgrading is clear to see. Today, competition in the petroleum refining industry continues to grow; therefore refiners are looking to minimise fuel oil production by means of integrating deep conversion processes into their asset configuration. In the current market, simple refinery configurations are no longer competitive and residue upgrading is an essential design feature in any world-class refinery complex. Increasing conversion and consequently curbing low-value fuel oil production, is without a doubt, a key challenge for many existing and grassroot refining facilities. Yet, since there is a whole range of commercially proven deep conversion technologies, it is up to each refinery to select an optimum process configuration based on their specific features and requirements.
Established 18 years ago, Euro Petroleum Consultants’ BBTC – Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference is the only event to focus on residue upgrading. BBTC MENA has become one of the most insightful conferences for the refining industry in the Middle East, especially as more and more focus is given to residue upgrad.
