After a successful kick-off on May 26th and two intensive working days, the congress and exhibition “Syngas Nitrogen Russia and CIS 2021” in Moscow came to an end. The face-to-face event was attended by over 250 representatives of the gas and chemical industry, regulatory authorities, as well as technology providers and equipment suppliers attended the live event. The congress started with an open plenary session, where the participants discussed one of the main issues of the forum, namely, how the gas-chemical industry will develop in Russia and the CIS after the pandemic.
In a separate session, the congress participants addressed the issue of increasing the productivity of industrial enterprises using modern technologies and equipment. The WR Group Holding, a company providing a scope of logistics, certification and customs services on the global market, was introduced at the session. Wadim Rosenstein, the CEO of the holding, held a speech and presented the principles of effective management of the project logistics process to the interested specialists. The topic is particularly relevant for EPC contractors managing projects in the chemical industry. Wadim Rosenstein captured the key elements of the supply chain in project logistics, based on his own company’s many years of experience, and shared his insights with industry partners.
Other congress sessions were dedicated to the issues of sources of financing for industrial projects, project management and industry innovations. For the first time, the congress addressed the new topic of hydrogen production from synthesis gas.
More than 20 new and ongoing industry investment projects were presented at the event. Among them are the construction of a methanol and nitrogen fertiliser plant of the NZMU Nakhodka Fertilizer Plant, the construction of Lukoil’s Stavrolen-based gas-chemical complex, the expansion of production facilities of the Shekinoazot and others.
More than 30 hours of formal communication and informal networking allowed congress participants not only to discuss and develop solutions to the most important problems of the gas and chemical industry, but also to establish promising contacts for future cooperation.
