Each year, the advisory board members of the International Refining and Petrochemical Conference (IRPC) provide invaluable professional input and guidance in the formation of the conference's top-notch technical program. Recently, Stephany Romanow, editor of Hydrocarbon Processing, spoke with fellow IRPC board member Carlos Cabrera to get his thoughts on the state of the global refining industry, both now and in the future.

In two separate interviews, the industry veterans covered a variety of topics, including potential growth opportunities in the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI), Ivanhoe Energy's heavy oil conversion technology, refiners' options for processing heavier, high-sulfur oil, and today's economics of operating in the industry.
