21st World Petroleum Congress

15 - 19 June, 2014, Moscow, Russia

Salambek KhadzhievUpon giving his expert evaluation of the Technical Programme of the 21st World Petroleum Congress, which will take place in June 2014 in Moscow, the most significant authority in the field of petrochemistry and refining, Academician Salambek Khadzhiev, states that this document wholly reflects the current state of the art and development prospects for the global petroleum industry, that is formulates topical challenges at the global level and incorporates all aspects of the most complex sector of the world economy. The issue concerning the development of Arctic Shelf hydrocarbon resources has been included in the programme final form, as well as questions topical for Russian industry and science, regarding refining and petrochemistry, as proposed by the Russian Programme Committee.

In the opinion of Academician Khadzhiev, it is important for Russia to discuss new technologies for downstream processing with oilmen of the world, as this remains one of most pertinent country's problems. But Russia has the opportunity to turn this lag to its advantage: today, new processes are being developed – more effective and less ecologically damaging than those which have been launched in the US and Western Europe in recent decades.
