The abstracts will be graded based on evidence of:

  • Originality
  • Exclusivity to MERTC
  • Potential for impact in the industry


  • Evidence of operating experience
  • Regional relevance, practicality and operability
  • Soundness
  • Strength of validation
  • Quality of presentation
  • Industrial case studies with valuable lessons learned
  • Clear take-aways and realised benefits
  • Imminence of interest


Additional recognition will be given for abstracts submitted from refiners, petrochemical producers or co-presented client case studies.


  • Abstracts should be 200-500 words and be written in English.
  • Prior to abstract submission any relevant approvals and clearance must be in place. Any issues concerning approval or clearance should be outlined when the abstract is submitted.
  • If you have presented this abstract previously, you will need to provide details of when and where.
  • If the speaker is known, please also include the proposed speaker’s biography to support the submission.
  • Following abstract submission, if successful a 25 minute presentation will be required (plus 5 minutes for Q&A). A formal technical paper is not mandatory.


If your abstract is accepted you will be notified in early October 2016.
