(EnergyAsia, June 5, Thursday) — Oxford Princeton’s ‘The Synergies of Refining, Trading and Supply’ will be held in Singapore from August 18 to 21.

This advanced course will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the latest business techniques and refining technologies available to the oil supply, trading and refining business. It will show how activities in these sectors could be optimised and synergised to maximise profitability. 

Delegates will learn the principles of trading, and refinery planning and economics through a variety of case studies.

Topics addressed include the influence of the world energy outlook on refining economics, selection of the optimum crude slate, use of trading techniques to maximise refining profitability, the  economics and technologies of refining and planning, supply, refining and distribution optimisation in a multiple refinery scenario, capturing added value by blending, commercial opportunities in processing, adding value within the logistical chain, project investment evaluation, return on capital invested, measuring refinery performance and strategies and constraints in the future of the industry.

The workshop is recommended for those working in the refining and supply trading sectors who have a direct involvement in the efficiency and profitability of refinery operations and its interaction with the supply trading functions.

Ian Holdaway, an international consultant in the downstream oil industry and a partner and technical director of Cambrian Marine Reprocessing, a company specialising in the on-site reprocessing of contaminated petroleum and petrochemical cargoes, will direct the course.
