Dr. Francesco Coletti, UNIHEAT Industry Engagement Manager, represented the UNIHEAT project at the Moscow Refining, Gas & Petrochemicals conference.
Running from the 16th to the 19th September 2013 in Moscow, the week involved a series of conferences, the 5th International Gas Technology Conference & Exhibition (IGTC), the 12th Russia & CIS Petrochemicals Technology Conference & Exhibition (RPTC) and the 13th Russia & CIS Refining Technology Conference & Exhibition (RRTC).
The event was attended by many industry representatives and the programme featured a mix of market overviews and outlooks (from ‘Impact of Shale Gas on Regional Markets and Projects’ by European Petroleum Consultants, to ‘How the Global Trends Affect the Refining Industry’ by LUKOIL) and technical presentations (for example, ‘Upgrade Bottom-of-the-Barrel to Improve Your Margins’ by UOP).
As part of UNIHEAT’s Industry Engagement Programme, Dr Coletti took this opportunity to introduce the project to some of the most well-known Russian and international Oil & Gas companies. The team is now busy following up and developing further relationships with the numerous contacts made during the event.
