Save the date: The ARTC 20th Annual Meeting
29th-30th March 2017 in Indonesia

ARTC is one of the most respected refining conferences in Asia, where leading Asian refiners and petrochemical producers meet to discuss market outlook and technology innovation. It offers a fantastic chance to connect with stakeholders in Asia’s downstream sector.

These are exciting times for Indonesia’s refining future. ARTC is proud to bring together global investors, oil companies and technology providers with a view to investing in Indonesia’s refining future and the Refinery Development Masterplan or ‘RDMP.’


In 2017 we’re pleased to introduce new networking initiatives to ARTC including our popular Speed Networking and interactive round table sessions.

Case studies NOT sales pitches – our Advisory Board assess and score every technical paper to make sure that technical talks are application and outcome-oriented rather than product-focused.

Refiners come for free! The World Refining Association has reserved 50 complimentary passes for refiners and petrochemical producers to attend as our guests. Passes will be given on a first-come first-serve basis so please apply now.

ARTC 20th Annual Meeting

March 29th – 30th 2017


After successful events in Bangkok and Singapore in 2014 and Kuala Lumpar in 2016, WRA brings the ARTC 20th Annual Meeting to Indonesia. We will be following up with the 200 senior refinery decision makers we met in 2014 and crucially to hear updates on the major projects that were discussed at the time.

ARTC is the meeting place for the Asian refining and petrochemical industry and forms part of WRA’s international portfolio of conferences dedicated to the downstream refining and petrochemical industry.

WRA will once again provide the industry with the leading forum where Asia’s senior managers outline their strategic vision for the region.

By attending this premier oil refining conference attendees will gain knowledge of the latest technologies being developed and implemented, as well as learn from case studies from some of the world’s leading refiners.


We facilitate knowledge sharing and nurturing of business partnerships within the oil and gas sector. We do so by providing face-to-face opportunities to network including conferences, exhibitions and networking evenings; independent analysis and creation of industry reports and webinars. We create events that matter.
