India Refining Summit 2019

Messe Frankfurt India welcomes the oil and gas downstream sector to join the 4th edition of India Refining Summit ‘Refining and Petrochemicals – Synergise and Revolutionise’ at Hotel Shangri-La, New Delhi on 22-23 August 2019. The forum invites the Industry stakeholders, thought leaders, policy makers and solution providers from India and overseas to discuss the global dynamics impacting the downstream sector, latest expansion projects, environmental impact and technologies to combat, investments and government initiatives aiding the downstream sector, fourth industry revolution, technological advancements in refinery operations and taking forward the integration approach in Refining and Petrochemical Industry.

Conference Background

India aspires to continue to be a major player in Asian refining and to also become a petrochemicals hub. To sufficiently fuel its growing economy, India requires a huge amount of oil and gas. The demand will prompt its private and state-owned refiners to pursue ambitious brownfield and greenfield expansion plans in coming years, undaunted by the widespread push to embrace alternative energy forms or electric vehicles.

The government is also looking at promoting alternative fuels and implementing measures for refinery process improvements. Several initiatives have been taken to fulfil the increasing demand, including the launch of Open Acreage Licensing Policy (OALP) and Coal Bed Methane (CBM) policy. It has allowed 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in E&P projects and 49 per cent in refining under the automatic route giving thrust on demand substitution and capitalising untapped potential in bio-fuels.

Foreign investors are forming the strategic partnerships to invest in an integrated refinery and petrochemicals complex and other E&P projects that will aid the brownfield refineries.

India Refining Summit will propagate discussions on expansion projects, foreign investments and govt. policies to aid the appraisal of downstream sector which will help in achieving the refining capacity and meeting the fuel demand. It will discuss the refinery processes and latest technologies leading to fourth industry revolution which helps the plants to operate in minimum costs and maximum turnovers hence complying with the standards of Healthy, Safety and Environment. The forum will also take forward the discussions on potential of refining-cum-petrochemical complexes and latest technologies for integration at the facilities.
