Here is what happened last year, at the 5th Annual LARTC in Mexico with the support of PEMEX:

“Excellent conference, it was very dynamic and really promoted interactions between the participants.”
Noe Estrada, Technical Specialist, PEMEX Transformation Industrial

LARTC is an excellent opportunity to get an update on the latest technological developments, create networks in the industry and meet the challenges that regional refineries are facing.
Marc Llambías, Refining Manager, ENAP

The 5th Latin America Refining Technology Conference in 2016 was opened by Rosanety Barrios Beltrán, Industrial Transformation Policy Unit Chief from the Ministry of Energy in Mexico and brought together 128 industry stakeholders from 51 companies, as well as 34 representatives from Pemex.

Bigger and better than ever and with a programme packed full of new features, all focused on helping you make the most of your time at LARTC.


We facilitate knowledge sharing and nurturing of business partnerships within the oil and gas sector. We do so by providing face-to-face opportunities to network including conferences, exhibitions and networking evenings; independent analysis and creation of industry reports and webinars. We create events that matter.
