RPME 2016 Power 50: 1-10by Arabian Oil & Gas Staff on Dec 14, 2016
RPME reveals the 50 most influential men and women making an impact on the downstream sector in the region and the world.
Welcome to this year’s Refining and Petrochemicals Middle East Power 50, where we present you with a list of the most influential figures in the region’s downstream sector.
Comparing powerful individuals from two separate industries – refining and petrochemicals – is far from simple. But it is necessary, as it is important, as the two sectors become more and more integrated. Those few leaders who have made it to the top would have done so based on how influential they are both in the refining and petrochemical industries not just in their respective countries, but also throughout the region.
RPME’s 2016 Power List also aims to recognize the role traders and suppliers play in the sector. The GCC is home to some of the world’s largest and most ambitious downstream projects, the development of which would not have been possible without the cutting-edge technologies and quality services available in region.
This is why we have included a number of executives working for some of the best technology providers in the world, who by promoting innovation and change, have helped shape the Middle East’s downstream industry, enabling it to compete on global markets.
As with every year, we open the list with two industry heavyweights: Aramco and Sabic.
