Also speaking will be Venki Chandrashekar, vice president for research and technology at Chevron Phillips Chemical, and Suresh Padmanabhan, senior vice president, chief technology officer and global manufacturing head for PET at Indorama Ventures.

“Our speaker line-up this year is undoubtedly one of the best we have ever seen,” said Bridget Robinson, head of downstream at Reuters Events. “The commitment we have had from speakers in 2022 underscores the critical importance of the downstream sector in these turbulent times.”

Over 1,000 conference attendees, 5,000 exhibition visitors and 250 exhibitor booths, Downstream USA 2022 are expected and the event will highlight four conference topics to spotlight some of the most Important current issues for the oil industry:

  1. Engineering and construction: will include new-age project execution, effective technology adoption and future downstream capital expenditure investments.
  2. Shutdowns and turnarounds: examining robust turnaround strategies, project controls and how to streamline data and remove silos. 
  3. Reliability and maintenance: will look at the latest tools and technologies, the power of people and overcoming uncertainties.
  4. The future of downstream: focusing on sustainability, digital transformation and resilience.

“To effectively capture returning demand for downstream products requires balancing investments in complete optimization across the full value chain against rising operational and capital costs and unpredictable margins. At Downstream USA 2022, more than 5,000 decision makers will meet in person this June to ask: how can we achieve both?” added Bridget Robinson
