In 2005 Euro Petroleum Consultants launched a series of high level conferences known as Rus BBTC; Russia & CIS Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference & Exhibition (CIS BBTC). For 12 years BBTC has been one of the most popular conferences devoted to residue upgrading technologies in Russia & CIS countries.
In today’s economic environment, residue upgrading has been identified as the key solution to the pressing challenge of meeting the growing market demand for cleaner fuels, the gradual substitution to processing heavier feedstock and the decreasing demand for heavy oil.
In refining and in particular for those refineries processing heavier crudes, there is a simple challenge; how to increase the overall conversion of the residues of all crudes into the most valuable distillates. It will be important for refiners to select the options that best meet their specific market requirements and also fit within their investment plans. In recent years we have seen refinery complexity increase and despite the increased capital costs associated, this has led to undeniable benefits in terms of flexibility and financial performance.
Russia & CIS Bottom of the Barrel Technology Conference & Exhibition will take place on 5-6 April at the InterContinental Moscow Tverskaya Hotel and will bring together the world’s industry leaders, refiners and suppliers to share new technology developments and discuss innovative ways to use, recycle and recover catalysts in residue upgrading processes.
As usual the event format is designed to encourage networking and open discussions. The magnificent venue is the InterContinental Moscow Tverskaya Hotel located on Tverskaya, the main street of Moscow, leading straight into the Kremlin and providing every service a conference delegate requires.
WHEN: 5-6 April
WHERE: InterContinental Moscow Tverskaya Hotel, Moscow, Russia
