Mr. Martin Hawkins

While a lot of brownfield and greenfield refining & petrochemicals projects are coming up worldwide in the coming years, companies will likely have to take a more disciplined approach to capacity additions and all petrochemical players will need to work much harder on core capabilities and strategy. This will include using digital and advanced analytics to reach a new level of productivity, and attaining higher capital productivity on the industry’s large-scale projects. Companies must also work on reinventing the interface with oil refining as the gas-driven era winds down.
