Shutdowns and Turnarounds Conference

The economic outlook remains challenging, and the ability to plan and implement efficient, safe and cost-effective shutdowns and turnarounds has rarely been as integral to your operational effectiveness as it is now.

Returning to Rotterdam on 24-25 October 2017, the 14th Annual Shutdowns and Turnarounds Summit continues to lead the industry by focusing on the key areas that contribute to successful and efficient turnarounds of both onshore and offshore assets for all sectors, not just oil and gas!

To protect slim margins, STO strategy is increasingly focused on extending the period between shutdowns, or advising small, targeted periods of maintenance. This shift needs to be managed carefully, and this year's summit will focus heavily on providing you with clear advice and guidance to support your organisation and mitigate risk.

Qualified STO managers will always be a scare commodity, so ensuring the right knowledge and experience is transferred and shared is key to delivering long-term operational excellence. In addition, new software and other technologies continue to enhance the planning and implementation process, whilst also delivering value-add opportunities.

As the longest-established event focused on shutdowns and turnarounds, representing the largest community of industry professionals, we will continue to bring you exclusive case studies and up to date guidance from global leaders in oil and gas, petrochemicals, metals, wind, nuclear and refineries, to reinvigorate your STO strategy.

Shutdowns and Turnarounds 2017 will tackle the key challenges, including:

  • Scope Management - Align departmental diversity and develop a system to align scope from planning through to execution
  • Maintenance - Techniques to reduce expenditure by executing robust day-to-day inspections, repairs and program implementation
  • Lessons Learned - Capturing data and implementing the lessons learned to improve the efficiency of your next turnaround project
  • Contractor Management - Overcome communicative and cultural challenges with your contractors while ensuring quality assurance
  • Health and Safety - Ensure quality control to and safety standard to avoid reputational damage
