The Middle East refining and petrochemicals manufacturing industry made impressive development during the past ten years. Under the leadership of dynamic technocrats, the industry witnessed implementation of landmark projects, development of game-changing technologies and creation of novel products.

The right combination of people, projects, processes and products was the catalyst for the success of the downstream industry during the past decade. as the industry strives to become a major force in the global downstream landscape, there is tremendous pressure to transform its operational strategies. The essential ingredients in this transformation will be the right people, projects, processes and products.

Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East completes a decade of disseminating vital industry information this month. To commemorate our 10th Anniversary, I have profiled ten ambitious people, ten watershed projects, ten innovative processes and ten novel products as Editor’s Choice in our cover story.

Over the years, Refining & Petrochemicals Middle East has emerged as the premier source of authentic news, data and analysis for the region’s downstream professionals. In our pursuit to deliver valuable information to our readers, through interviews of business leaders, columns by domain experts, articles from professionals, reports of industry bodies, insights by forecasters, and analysis from market research organisations, we have created a trusted platform for the Middle East refining and petrochemical community for expressing their voice. I would like this magazine to be driven by this community and that can happen only through your active participation.

In future, the magazine will continue to showcase the complex dynamics of the Middle East refining and petrochemical business, its innovations, challenges, opportunities, success stories, leaders, projects, technologies etc., with more novel features and insights.

I take this opportunity to thank our readers, everyone who has contributed to create insightful content in this magazine, and all our advertisers. Your support has made us sustain in this difficult market dynamics. I look forward to a continuing and healthy engagement with our readers, contributors and advertisers in the future.
