The BBTC series of conferences was established 16 years ago by Euro Petroleum Consultants to address the important issues and technology considerations for residue upgrading in refineries around the world.

In refining and in particular those refineries processing heavier crudes, there is a simple challenge – how to increase the overall conversion of the residues of all crudes into the most valuable distillates. In recent years refinery complexity has increased and despite the capital costs associated, this has led to undeniable benefits in terms of flexibility and financial performance.

BBTC is currently the only event that focuses on technologies, project trends, catalysts and equipment innovations as residue upgrading becomes increasingly important to our industry and in this region. Held in Abu Dhabi for the last two years, the 3rd edition of BBTC Middle East & Africa edition will take place on 26 & 27 October in Bahrain.
