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.
