Asian Downstream Summit is Asia’s most influential downstream oil & gas event, and a globally recognized brand, that brings together senior industry leaders and decision makers across the downstream value chain to discuss the most pressing challenges and issues that the industry is facing, and how to overcome them.

Asian Downstream Summit will be co-located with the popular Asian Refining Technology Conference (ARTC), that annually hosts all the major NOCs, IOCs, integrated oil companies, EPC contractors, consultants, financiers, lawyers, technology vendors, and service companies, that come together to set the tone for the future direction of Asia’s refining & petrochemical industry.

Asian Downstream Summit (ADS) and Asian Refining Technology Conference (ARTC), together make up Asia’s most important regional gathering for the downstream oil & gas sector, and remains a “must-attend” gathering in the regional industry calendar.

Asian Downstream Summit Overview

The 2021 Asian Downstream Summit focuses on “Industry 4.0”, and will dig deep into the journey of digital transformation, from automation to autonomous operations, and dive into the opportunities along the way that allow operators to achieve sustainable operational excellence, even in challenging market conditions.

As part of our 2021 agenda, we will examine how operators can leverage off technologies to modernise and optimise their existing infrastructure, and thrive in a transitioning and evolving energy market. We will also examine the evolution of downstream supply chain, and how the trend towards new “cleaner” energy sources will impact the traditional oil and gas industry. How can the industry - governments and regulating bodies - collaborate to maintain a dynamic and competitive market? And how can downstream oil and gas players maximise the sustainability of their operations?

Attracting only relevant delegates that are all looking for the latest digital technologies, this event provides an excellent platform for companies to showcase their software solutions to key Asian buyers.
