The World Refining Association has been the world’s foremost for the refining industry for over two decades, with operations on every continent. As part of our activities we offer LARTC which is made up of two days of multi streamed strategic and technical content for refineries and petrochemical plants to address the key shifts in global demand including the rise in electric vehicles, the conversation among executive downstream stakeholders has moved to bio-fuels production, renewable plastics and technological advances to support increased energy efficiency. The downstream industry has reenergised and is now ready to shape its role in the energy transition. In October we are pleased to bring this discussion to the Latin American market with the full support of Ecopetrol as Host Partner. On October 1st a pre-conference workshop will take place followed by two full days of content, with speakers from Ecopetrol, Petrobras, ENAP, YPF and many more key industry players. The conference will then end with a refinery tour.
