Petroleum Refining (HPI)

Hydrocarbon Processing Industry

The global Petroleum Refining Industry never stops changing. As the economies of developing countries continue to strengthen and new sources of crude oil emerge, grassroot refinery projects are being continually planned, and upgrades, revamps and retrofits for existing refineries are increasingly frequent.

In North America, oil production from shale plays and the Canadian oil sands is making new construction and refinery upgrades and expansions increasingly necessary. The growing economies of Asia make the region the world's largest region for Petroleum Refining activity in order to satisfy the growing demand for petroleum products.

Long-Term Service Agreements (LTSA)

Industrial Info's Long-Term Service Agreement (LTSA) intelligence is integrated seamlessly with the Plant information to help users track the details of LTSAs and preferred contractors.

The LTSA Intelligence helps you recognize key third-party players in the daily operations of plants, identifies opportunities to pursue associated maintenance or capital work, and detects key competitors specific to a plant. Search using your own criteria to track LTSA contractors by geography or company. Build queries around LTSAs expiring in specific time periods, or discover where certain LTSA contractors are currently contracted and for what type of craft or trade.


Industrial Info's Analytics Products help supplement our online platform and give our clients a more long-term view of where spending is expected to be and what major trends or drivers could be affecting spending.
