Our Story

The World Refining Association exists to facilitate knowledge sharing and nurturing of business partnerships within the downstream oil and gas sector. We help the industry share knowledge, with a focus on new technology and in particular technology that improves efficiency and increases plant productivity. For over twenty years, the WRA has existed as a worldwide network to bring refiners and producers together with the relevant suppliers. Our industry leading content, conferences, exhibitions and networking events allow senior executives, decision makers and technical engineers, from all corners of the industry to come together to collaborate and discuss the future of the downstream industry.
