Digital Refineries Africa Conference

  • Digitalising Africas refineries to evolve from a crude exporting powerhouse to a smart refinery hub
  • July 23-25, 2019
  • Lagos, Nigeria

Embarking Africa's refineries on a digital journey to optimise production capacity

Investing and implementing digital technologies for Africa is no more a thing of the future and a luxury to oil companies. It is a necessity now keeping in mind the poor production capacities. With disruptive technologies proven over the past couple of years, these technologies have the capabilities of improving efficiency, safety and operability whilst reducing costs in the long run.

With $300 billion being invested into the African economies for digitalization, a major chunk is being allocated towards the digitalisation of refineries. Effective integration of digital technologies can reduce capital expenditure at refineries by 20%. Almost 90% of oil thefts and pipeline vandalisation can be prevented through digitalisation, which currently costs Nigeria $35 million a day.

Are you ready to embrace the digital shift and achieve optimum security and production capacities?

Co-Located With: Health Safety Security Environment (HSSE) Africa Conference
