MOSCOW REFINING, GAS & PETROCHEMICALS WEEK The Leading Technology Forum for Refining, Gas and Petrochemicals in Russia and CIS

“My colleagues and I never miss an EPC event in Moscow. The EPC conferences are a compass for understanding that helps moving in the right direction the development of our refinery.” Vladimir Nikolenko, Head of Department for Capital Construction, UKRTATNAFTA Russia and the CIS remains one of the few regions that continues to look at major investment programs in the downstream sector with the aim to increase the implementation of modernisation & upgrade programmes in Refineries, Gas and Petrochemical plants.

In September 2010 the industry will once more convene in Moscow’s Marriott Grand Hotel to network with peers, find the right business partners and get insight on: • Where major investment will proceed in the next few years • W hat are the latest technology & market developments which will enable new products to be produced from conventional & new feedstock • Current Projects and successful plant case studies that showcase: – How to generate value & improve plant efficiency – Increase productivity and profitability – Meet new legislations – Incorporate new technologies & increase plant flexibility

“IGTC is an excellent platform to learn a lot of useful information, especially about the strategy for Russian gas industry, which is very important for all companies involved in the downstream industries. A very useful conference for networking and business development.” Hans van Baal, Managing Director, Stamicarbon “Participation in the annual RPTC conference is a great opportunity to be updated on the petrochemical trends through direct contact with key industry decision makers.” Alexander Samoilovich, Deputy Director Refining & Petrochemicals, KazMunayGaz
