Carbon Holdings participates in CIS Petrochemicals Conference

(Cairo, Egypt) – Carbon Holdings, a mid-to-downstream petrochemical company and catalyst of industrial development in Egypt, announced today its participation in CIS Petrochemicals conference in Moscow, the largest petrochemicals event in the CIS region.

The conference provides a platform for industry leaders to identify investment opportunities and discuss challenges and innovations within the industry. Since its founding, the conference has been held in partnership with Sibur, a leading Russian petrochemicals company. The conference will take place from 11 – 12 April in Moscow’s Four Seasons Hotel.

On the first day, Peter Skelley and Damir Zagidullin will give a presentation on the development of large-scale polyolefins in the Middle East, as part of an event entitled, “Global Petrochemicals Industry Outlook.” The pair will discuss the opportunities that Carbon Holding’s Tahrir Petrochemicals Corporation (TPC) will bring for the Russian petrochemical industry within Africa.

Currently, TPC is in advanced stages of its development, however, once completed it will be one of the world’s largest single-train naphtha cracker facilities. Carbon Holdings believe that TPC will provide a spring-board for petrochemical development in Egypt, enabling greater investment and partnering opportunities for Russian petrochemical companies.

Also, on the first day, Peter Skelley will take part in a panel discussion, entitled “Zero to One: How to make big investment decisions in a high-risk sector,” where he will join other senior executives to discuss the key challenges in project decision-making and how to enhance flexibility under high risk circumstances.

Chief Projects Officer of Carbon Holdings, Peter Skelley commented:

“CIS Petrochemicals conference is a fantastic opportunity for us to develop partnerships from within the Russian petrochemical industry and for us to showcase our products and the progress we are making with TPC.”

Our participation in CIS Petrochemicals conference is part of Carbon’s vision of becoming a leader of the international petrochemical industry, driving its future growth, as well as Egypt’s industrial development.”
