In May 2022, PVN and KBR coordinated to organize a conference on refinery and petrochemical industry, where KBR experts presented and introduced a number of new and advanced technologies in the refinery- petrochemical industry such as developing "green" products (green hydrogen, green ammonia...) for contributing to speeding up energy transition and proposed to apply a number of the new technologies and technical solutions in PVN's projects such as upgrading and expanding Dung Quat Oil Refinery plant, participating in investment to develop Long Son Energy and Petrochemical Complex.
On behalf of PVN Mr. Hoang Quoc Vuong highly appreciated the results of the technical conference jointly organized by PVN and KBR.

PVN will focus on upgrading and expanding the Dung Quat refinery plant and study investment in developing Long Son refinery-petrochemical complex. For implementing these projects in a time schedule, PVN wishes to cooperate and coordinate KBR in the technological field in order to maximally ensure the conditions and guarantee the projects effectively operate.
