What can the Canadian petrochemicals sector actually achieve as it continually adapts to remain competitive? That is the key question that CERI’s stellar cast of speakers and moderators will keep front and centre as it examines the critical issues. Canada’s petrochemical sector has re-tooled dramatically over the past 50 years, in response to a changing set of factors. The Middle East is capitalizing on huge cost advantages. Feedstock supply changes with tight natural gas supply and a booming oil sands sector. Competition for capital, management and skilled labour, and materials and equipment is fierce. Environmental issues affect every business decision. And governments at all levels want to see more value-added activities in Canada. Examine this veritable minefield of related—often conflicting—issues facing the sector at the CERI 2007 Petrochemical Conference.
