Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
Paul Kennedy of Solomon Associates, the leading performance improvement company for the global energy industry, will present “World's Best Refineries” at the Asian Refining Technology Conference (ARTC) 15th Annual Meeting, March 27-28, in Bangkok, Thailand.
Solomon’s vice president of Asia Operations, Kennedy, will provide valuable insights into how the best refineries gain a competitive advantage and what this is worth. The presentation is based on Solomon’s rigorous methodology for identifying the top-performing refineries through comparative performance analysis.
“Solomon Associates’ methodology and technology enable very different refineries in terms of capacity and complexity to be compared with each other,” said Kennedy. “Because of this, refineries from all over the world can effectively participate in Solomon’s Fuels Study; current participation exceeds 85 percent of the worldwide refinery capacity.”
The Fuels Study results continuously reveal new standards of performance in the industry and provide a basis for companies to set their refinery improvement strategies and targets. Kennedy will discuss the characteristics of the top-performing refineries, specifically with respect to net margin and a breakdown of operating cost performance.
Global Technology Forum is hosting the ARTC 15th Annual Meeting at the Millennium Hilton Bangkok, bringing together top refining and petrochemical professionals to discuss the latest technological innovations, regulations and challenges facing the downstream sector today.
The event features an interactive dialogue between operators and technology suppliers, keynote sessions and case-study presentations. Kennedy will present in the keynote session on the morning of Tuesday, March 27.
