The world we live in today has been shaped by cru­de oil, a natu­ral resour­ce. Being an eco­no­mi­c­al pri­ma­ry ener­gy car­ri­er with high ener­gy den­si­ty, it has impro­ved wealth and pro­vi­ded acces­si­bi­li­ty to ener­gy inten­si­ve pro­ducts at rea­son­ab­le pri­ces. Loo­king to the future, refi­ne­ry ope­ra­tors will have to pre­pa­re for chal­len­ges, such as cru­de oil feed­stocks with a more com­plex com­po­si­ti­on, gro­wing mar­ket requests for clean fuels, incre­a­sed demand for ener­gy effi­ci­en­cy by regu­la­tors and, cur­rent role and impact of digi­ta­liz­a­ti­on and cli­ma­te change.

Refi­ne­ries of the future will have to adapt to their cus­to­mers’ needs and gain public accep­t­ance. It is impe­ra­ti­ve that refi­ners place their focus on high-value pro­ducts pro­du­ced through sophisti­ca­ted and ener­gy-effi­ci­ent pro­ces­ses, being envi­ron­ment­al­ly com­pli­ant with the lowest pos­si­ble car­bon footprint.

As an inde­pen­dent con­sul­tant with a strong engi­nee­ring back­bone, ILF hel­ps its cli­ents to pro­vi­de sus­tainab­le, value crea­ting hydro­car­bons that allow man­kind to pre­pa­re for the future and also gene­ra­te wealth.
