Conference Presentations – Galveston 2020

Galveston RefComm Call for Papers 2020
Presentation topics for RefComm® Galveston 2020 are categorized in 4 tracks: Delayed Coking, Fluid Catalytic Cracking, Solvent Deasphalting, and Sulfur Recovery. This is an excellent opportunity for Operators and Solution Providers to share Lessons Learned, Best Practices and new technologies to optimize productivity and safety.

We welcome abstracts from all organizations, but presentations authored or co-authored by refinery personnel will be given priority. Submission is free but abstracts accepted to the program will be subject to a discounted registration fee.
