Often the refining industry is not very lucrative - as oil prices change the refinery margins may become negative due to the relatively lower product prices compared to crude oil. Product prices are then strongly influenced by supply and demand and inventory levels. The demand is influenced by economic growth and, in the short-term, seasonal climatic factors. Because of this, the economics dictate that it is more cost effective to upgrade an existing refinery rather than construct a new one from scratch. Cutting-edge technologies are being introduced into refineries, such technologies help refiners to raise capacities, take advantage of opportunity crudes and meet stringent product specifications.

Experts from the leading companies in the ever evolving industry will come together and put forward their issues and experiences in devising strategies for profitable refinery expansion and upgrade. Senior Level Management Executives from well renowned companies will showcase the critical issues and concerns faced in their field of operations and strategies adopted to emerge as thriving market players. Hence, you'll definitely take away practicable insights and benefit from the experiences of these industrial leaders.
