Europe's largest meeting place for the world's downstream leaders

In late August, the World Refining Association hosted the annual Middle East Refining Technology Conference (MERTC) Advisory Board meeting in Bahrain, gathering senior stakeholders from across the GCC to discuss the most pertinent challenges and priorities currently facing the Gulf’s downstream industry. Chaired by José Alberich, Partner at A.T. Kearney, the discussion covered a full spectrum of strategic and technical topics and has been instrumental in shaping an exciting new programme for January’s event.
