6th Downstream Project Management Annual Conference 2019

6th Downstream Project Management Annual Conference 2019

About the 6th Annual Conference Downstream Project Management

With major projects in the downstream oil and gas recently launched both in Central Eastern Europe and the CIS, many companies have already faced significant delays and budget overruns, let alone region-specific difficulties stemming from the innate complexity of projects and common challenges in the downstream sector. Moving along this path requires thorough preparations, including learning from those who already walked this way and faced the inherent risks and challenges.

Downstream Project Management is the platform focusing specifically on challenges and best practices in capital construction and project management around Europe. Leading project owners and vertically integrated oil & gas companies such as Total, Lukoil, OMV, Mol Group, Gazprom Neft, Sibur and Rosneft come to share best practices, to present their plans, to look for new technologies and to discuss topical issues related to project implementation.

Why Should You Attend

A strong project management organisation is critical for megaprojects with multiyear horizons and dozens of stakeholders. When you have hundreds of millions of dollars at stake along with already challenging profit margins and the very risky nature of the projects, you don’t really have a margin for error.

The 6th Annual Downstream Project Management Conferense addresses these challenges and presents practical case studies, customer journeys and the latest applications of innovative technology in project management in the refining and petrochemical industry.
