Welcome to ARA African Refiners Association
The African Refiners Association (ARA) was founded in 2006 and has quickly become the voice not just of refineries but of all downstream oil in Africa. The objective of the ARA is to harness the synergies and solidarity which exist in the downstream oil industry by encouraging its members to discuss and exchange ideas and experience in all areas of oil refining, distribution and supply.
Whether you are a member, a partner of the ARA or simply a visitor to our site, you will find here details about our members and partners, as well as an overview of the Association’s organisation and activities: Work Groups, ARA WEEK, Technical Seminars and regular updates about the sector.
This topic was first covered in the Refining & HSEQ Seminar held in October 2008 at SAMIR in Mohammedia.Read Story
