About Asian Downstream Summit

The Asian Downstream Summit (ADS) is Asia’s most influential downstream oil and gas event; A globally recognised brand, ADS brings together senior industry leaders and decision-makers from all across the downstream value chain to discuss the most pertinent issues and challenges that the industry faces today, and what can be done to overcome them.

Held together with the Asian Refining Technology Conference (ARTC), the ADS agenda focuses on the theme of “Reconfiguring the Industry for the Global Energy Transition”, and explores the various ways that refiners can successfully integrate sustainability into their operations and, ultimately, achieve sustainable operational excellence in ever-evolving market conditions.

The programme will also examine how refiners can cope with a diversifying workforce, with changing skillsets and mindsets, and how the industry can attract and motivate this workforce of the future. How can technology aid in upskilling and transforming a workforce, and where does all this fit into the journey toward a circular economy?
