Balancing Energy Security, Affordability and Sustainability
9 May 2023

Sponsored by: AspenTech 

Disruptions in energy markets, lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, conflict in Europe – all have added to the Energy Trilemma. Digital solutions are playing a critical role in identifying pathways to address the dual challenge of meeting the growing need for energy and resources while reducing emissions.

Please join Vice-President of Content of Gulf Energy Information, Lee Nichols, Dr. Carole Nakhle, CEO of Crystol Energy and Dr. Paige Marie Morse, Sustainability Advisor at AspenTech, for a panel discussion moderated by Ron Beck, Sr. Director Solutions Marketing at AspenTech, as they address a range of topics, including:

  • How the last 18 month rebalanced the narrative of energy security and sustainability
  • How digital technology fits into the industry transition and balancing act
  • The implications for the Inflation Reduction Act’s “carrot” approach as opposed to the “stick”

Attend this free webinar and get actionable ideas for how your company can address the challenging balancing act in today’s energy markets. There will be a Q&A session following the event. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering.

Increasing Your Profitability in the Petrochemicals Market through State-of-the-Art Laboratory & Online Measurements
2 May 2023

Sponsored by: Petroleum Analyzer Company

The Oil & Gas industry is experiencing an important transition fueled by:

  • A continuously growing demand for petrochemicals
  • Increasingly complex crude slates paired with low refinery profit margins
  • Augmented e-mobility capabilities contrasted by a stagnant demand for transportation fuels
  • Increasing investments towards circular economy initiatives like:
    • Incentivizing the use of biofuels and bio-based co-processed feedstocks
    • Growing interest in plastic recycling for plastic waste pyrolysis oil

Such a shift calls for the repurposing of billions of dollars’ worth of existing assets, triggering new investments in both existing petrochemical manufacturing technologies, as well as innovative crude oil-to-chemical (COTC) technologies.

This webinar will explore:

  • The latest advancements in the petrochemical market
  • The emerging feedstocks, products, and associated measurement challenges
  • Solutions for optimizing profitability in both lab and process environments

The Playbook for Scaling up the Hydrogen Economy with Carbon Capture
18 April 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

To meet Net Zero emissions targets, demand for Hydrogen is expected to have to increase up to ten-fold by 2050, and industry reports predict that 8 to 24% of the world’s energy demand will be supplied by Hydrogen. Hydrogen has a unique ability to be a decarbonized fuel of the future in the refining, chemicals, heating, long-haul transport, and long-term power storage sectors – all of which currently produce significant CO2 emissions.  Traditional Hydrogen production still emits a significant amount of CO2; for Hydrogen to be effective in reducing emissions, it must be produced with significantly lower carbon intensity than is practiced today. Further, each of these sectors will require the supplied hydrogen to meet purity and product conditions that are tailored to the end use.  This presentation will share the playbook for scaling the Hydrogen economy through the production of low carbon Hydrogen in the next decade, while providing examples of Honeywell's pre- combustion and post-combustion CO2 capture systems optimized to serve various end-use applications.  Additionally, this presentation will highlight Honeywell’s solutions for CO2 emissions reduction in ‘hard to decarbonize’ sectors such as power, steel, and cement.  We will feature some recent stories from real customers and will answer your questions on how to make this happen at your organization.

FCC Revamps to Reduce CO2 and Drive Operational Efficiency
11 April 2023

Sponsored by: Lummus Technology

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) processes have long been a trusted workhorse in the refining industry to meet market demand for fuels and petrochemicals. Operators consider FCC revamp projects to further expand product slate flexibility, increase efficiency and reliability and, in today’s environment, reduce CO2 to meet ever-tightening emissions targets. But how do you correctly plan your FCC revamp?

This webcast will present planning considerations and benefits to ensure your FCC revamp achieves all desired objectives, including:

  • Strategies for CO2 reduction to meet current and future emissions targets
  • Options for improving performance, reliability and profitability
  • Low-cost technology-based solutions to meet the refiner’s processing objectives while minimizing or eliminating constraints

Controlling Costs and Prioritizing Safety in Industrial Gas Systems
21 March 2023

Sponsored by: Swagelok

Gas systems can easily become an afterthought, especially if they are not transporting anything overtly hazardous. Yet even the most mundane gas leaks can add up to serious costs when they drive down the efficiency of equipment or lead to outright downtime. Specialty gas leaks are an even bigger problem—at best they are expensive, and at worst they are downright dangerous. So, what do you really need to know and do to keep your gas systems operating effectively?

Join us for this webinar to find out. We will cover:

  • Essential components of a gas distribution system
  • How to reliably maintain pressure in bottle-fed, compressed gas systems
  • Where to spend time and resources now to save money later
  • When to consider standard or configurable pre-built system designs
  • How to improve operator and environmental safety by reducing leaks and making smart design choices
