Asset Performance Networks (AP-Networks) is excited to attend LARTC 2019, the single largest annual regional gathering of Latin America’s refining and petrochemical leaders. The conference will feature two days of strategic and technical content addressing the innovations and technologies relevant to the needs of Latin America’s refineries and petrochemical plants.
In some regions of the world, including Latin America, turnarounds are viewed primarily as painful and expensive maintenance operations. With so many activities and moving parts, they are difficult to plan. And even if companies do their best to plan, it is near impossible to stick to the plan. Lack of resources and an absence of reliable tools make it even harder to consistently deliver safe turnarounds within the planned budget and schedule.
Sonia Kaestner will tackle these challenges head on in her presentation, Driving Turnaround Excellence Through the Use of Data Analytics and Digital Tools, which she will deliver on Thursday, October 3rd at 11:40am. Sonia will share Industry Best Practices, key benchmarks, and reliable tools that have been proven to affect turnaround outcomes. These practices have been successfully implemented by most of the global operators in the world as part of their turnaround improvement programs.
The presentation will provide the audience with detailed information to revise their perspective of turnaround execution from a problem to a “low-hanging fruit” opportunity. Additionally, participants can use the benchmarks provided to develop their own business cases to launch improvement initiatives, change attitudes, and improve turnaround outcomes.
