Description

An incremental rise in domestic crude oil production in the United States along with the potential inflow of Canadian heavier crude is poised to disrupt the dynamics of the oil and gas downstream market. As end users invest in upgrades, retrofits, and new greenfield refinery projects, there is ample opportunity for automation vendors to enhance their solution offerings to cater to the pressing needs of control, safety, utilization, and productivity. This strategic market insight provides automation vendors a detailed analysis on regional market dynamics, required key retrofit units, current and future automation tools mapping, benefits of implementation, and a heat map of projects depicting total share for automation systems.
