The World Refining Association’s roots lies in the CIS region. Since the inaugural CIS and Russia Roundtable in 1996, our aim has been to help build the partnerships necessary to modernize the region’s refining and petrochemicals assets, realize further value and opportunities downstream whilst assessing the prospects, challenges and realities for the sector
The recent economic sanctions imposed on Russia by the West have undoubtedly been painful. As the country looks to locally develop the technologies and tools for the necessary revamping, modernisation and upgrading of its downstream assets, the sharing of best practice and thought leadership has become paramount.
Our downstream summit is supported by and have large representation from Ministries, IOCs, NOCs, and Regulators giving you a critical opportunity to stay close to resource holders.
Ministries, IOCs, NOCs, and Regulators we work with in the CIS include:
- VNIPI Neft
- Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan
- All Russian Research Institute of Oil Refining
