LARTC began with a plenary session which included comprehensive coverage of the market challenges facing the sector, including meeting low-sulfur regulations, desalting crude oil and optimizing refinery and petrochemical plant costs.

Over the two days, each morning started with a strategic overview of the industry with updates on key refinery projects and developments. The afternoons then focused on solving the key technical challenges facing the region’s refineries and petrochemical plants.

Key Themes

  • Understanding ideal ultra-low sulfur diesel solutions
  • Managing energy efficiency
  • Creating high-quality petrochemical products
  • Maximizing profit margins


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.
