CELEBRATING DOWNSTREAM SUCCESS & EXCELLENCE IN 2023

The Latin American Refining Technology Conference Awards of Excellence ceremony will once again recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements throughout the Latin American downstream industry, highlighting the refineries, engineers, executives and technologies that have been at the forefront of the progress the sector continues to make.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our network submit their nominations across six awards categories. The World Refining Association creates a longlist, which is put to our esteemed panel of awards judges to create a shortlist. The shortlist is then published, and our judges will vote for a second time, deciding on a winner for each award.

The final results will be announced at the awards ceremony on September 4 in Cartagena, Colombia.
