For twenty years, the World Refining Association has been committed to addressing the challenges the downstream industry faces through the promotion of downstream technology. We exist as a network to bring refiners and producers together with their suppliers and to explore how technology can move the industry forward - whether the challenge be environmental legislation, a need for greater efficiency or financial pressures.

We strive to bring together the industry’s influencers to share their thoughts, ideas and vision for the future. From our experienced and capable team, we bring professionalism and enthusiasm to each event and we look forward to producing a valuable and worthwhile experience for our customers.
