A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
I am honored and excited to be the Chairman of the Heat Exchanger World Americas Conference & Expo 2023. This conference is unique in the Heat Exchanger arena because the attendance is from all areas of the field. Attendees, sponsors, sub-sponsors, and presenters represent the gamut from the raw material and fabrication equipment suppliers, EPC organizations, heat exchanger fabricators, end users, and even further to those responsible for maintaining the equipment over its lifespan.
The Texas & Louisiana Gulf Coast has long been recognized as the Energy Capital of the world with Houston being at the center. This collection of petrochemical facilities, refineries, and chemical plants, midstream & pipeline, offshore production, LNG, and Ethane export terminals along with all the associated infrastructure supporting these facilities are of particular importance today. All of these facilities will undergo various changes in the coming years to account for more stringent Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) requirements. These are both legal mandates and societal perception requirements.
