16:15 | BRAINSTORMING SESSION

Advanced processing of natural gas in Russia. Is the mission impossible? 

The global gas-to-chemicals market is moving towards the development of advanced natural gas processing with high value-added items as the end-product. In the meantime, Russian gas-to-chemicals market is still inclined to be export-oriented, focusing primarily on lower processing products.

We will try to weigh up all the pros and cons of product line diversification and small-scale production in the Russian gas-to-chemicals market.
