Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that Mike Whitling, Manager of Asset Operations and Consulting, will deliver a presentation on brownfield asset optimisation during ARA Week from 14-18 March, in Marrakesh, Morocco.

In his presentation, “Brownfield Project Execution: A Perfect Opportunity to Engage Your Operations Team to Optimise Assets”, Mike will detail how to minimise risks and increase margins by adopting a holistic approach. Drawing upon several Amec Foster Wheeler case studies, he will demonstrate ways to minimise project turnaround time while maximising margins and the optimisation of the asset.

ARA Week is an annual event organised by the African Refiners Association. It is a meeting place for the downstream oil and gas industry in Africa, including representatives from refineries, government ministries, banks, regulators, importers, distributors, traders, storage companies, marketing companies and refinery equipment and technology suppliers.

Amec Foster Wheeler has been a long-term supporter of ARA Week. The Company has a significant track record in executing refinery projects, from 3D models and grassroots refinery complexes, through to major expansions and revamps, complex turnarounds, refinery/petrochemicals integration, clean fuels projects to meet new legislation, residue upgrading to produce higher-value products, right through to operations readiness planning, maintenance-type projects and ongoing asset operational support.
