Abu Dhabi, 23 October 2014 – Petrotechnics, the leading provider of operational performance and predictive risk management solutions, will share an evolutionary approach to achieving Shutdown and Turnaround Excellence at the Fleming Gulf 4th Plant Shutdown & Turnaround Conference. Taking place in Doha, Qatar from the 27th – 29th October at the Crowne Plaza, Petrotechnics will once again take the role of Strategic Partner with Fleming Gulf.

This annual event is the premier event on the topic of Plant Shutdowns and Turnarounds in hazardous industries in the Middle East. The focus of this year’s conference will be achieving the next generation of Shutdowns and Turnarounds (STO) resulting in greater efficiency and better results. Petrotechnics will share how organisations can improve and optimise Shutdown and Turnaround performance and get on the path to achieving operational excellence. This will be followed by an interactive workshop which will enable delegates to better connect people, process and technology and see how they can benefit from an ongoing risk based optimisation of the plan. With a greater understanding of risk, organisations will be empowered to make better decisions and get more of the right work done and ensure shutdowns and turnarounds are achieved on time and in budget.

“Fleming Gulf is proud to host Petrotechnics as its Strategic Partner once again at the much awaited 4th Plant Shutdown & Turnaround Conference”, said John Paul, Business Development Director, Fleming Gulf. “Petrotechnics will be directly involved in sharing best practises, addressing industry challenges and technological advancements with a collective audience of over 400 participants from leading energy corporations from across the MENA region,” continued Paul.

“By enabling people throughout the organisation to collectively understand the uncertainty around risk they can be empowered to make the right decisions and manage the dynamic safe execution of Shutdowns and Turnarounds. With our solution Proscient, organisations can get more of the right work done during a Shutdown and Turnaround and ensure they achieve their goals on time and on budget,” David Bleackley, Vice President of Sales, Petrotechnics.

Petrotechnics’ Proscient software platform is an operational performance and predictive risk solution that changes the safety-productivity dynamic in hazardous industries. It allows organisations to collectively understand the impact of risk on operations so that they can make better decisions to improve their operational performance. With the ability to ensure more of the right work is done safely, efficiently and sustainably, organisations can reduce operational risk and improve production efficiency. The result is improved safety, optimised production efficiency, improved asset integrity and a reduction in unplanned shutdowns and turnarounds. For more information visit
