Digital innovation themed at the Abu Dhabi International Downstream Summit

Abu Dhabi International Downstream Summit attracts record numbers

The downstream business is looking to further optimise processes with the aim of reducing downtime and increasing efficiency. Digitalisation is the key to unlocking hitherto unachievable productivity gains. The Abu Dhabi International Downstream Summit will be focussing on that digital future, where big data analysis will provide the clues to incremental process improvements, using data from hundreds of sensors embedded within plant assets.
But digitalisation is just one of the key themes that is drawing business leaders and engineers from the Middle East’s refining and petrochemical industry to the Abu Dhabi International Downstream Summit which will be taking place at Sofitel, Abu Dhabi in the UAE on 18 and 19 September 2017. read more
