Strategies for a Changing Downstream Environment

For eleven years, Hydrocarbon Processing's International Refining and Petrochemical Conference (IRPC) has been the leading downstream technology event.  For 2019, IRPC Americas will be held in Houston, Texas on September 25-26 at Crowne Plaza, near NRG.
