Digital Refining & Petrochemicals Summit 2022

Date: 28th September 2022 - 29th September 2022 Location: London - UK

Following the success of last year’s summit, ACI is very excited to announce the 2nd edition of our Digital Refining & Petrochemicals Summit, which will take place on 28th & 29th September 2022 in London, UK. Digital transformation is fundamental for oil companies to improve their margins and performance. According to Accenture, nearly 60% of refiners invest more in digital technologies than in 2018. Cost is no longer a primary concern now, the new barriers are cultural resistance to transformation and digital immaturity.

ACI’s Digital Refining & Petrochemicals Summit will bring together senior executives and experts from refineries, petrochemical companies, technology companies, market analysts, among others, to discuss the latest innovations, challenges and developments within the digital transformation.

The two days event will give you an insight into the newest digital developments and solutions within the refining industry, ways of transferring and storing data, asset management, strategies for digital transformation and change management.
