Call for Papers 2018 opening soon!

Demonstrate your technological expertise in the Latin American Downstream sector

Why should you present your paper?

  • Position yourself and your company as thought-leaders of the industry, demonstrating your technological expertise.
  • Present in front of an audience composed of senior representatives of refineries, NOCs, and IOCs from across the whole Latin American region, all looking for the next technological solution to the challenges they’re facing.
  • Presenting a paper gives you the opportunity to connect with stakeholders and form partnerships that will advance the region’s downstream industry.
  • The abstracts will be graded by our esteemed Advisory Board made up of industry experts from across the region.

Acceptance criteria will be on originality and technical innovation. Preference will be given to papers outlining case studies and actual operating experience. Papers from supply companies that are co-authored with operating companies will also be given preference.

LARTC’s live Advisory Board meeting will take place at the 28th February as we look to shape the agenda for 2018!

Once our Advisors have identified topics that should be addressed at the event this year, we will then open the Call for Papers at the beginning of March.

In the meantime, please register your interest in submitting an abstract if you’d like to speak 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.
