<em>Hydrocarbon Processing</em>, the downstream processing sector’s leading technical publication for 100 yr, has announced the finalists for its sixth annual <em>HP</em> Awards, which celebrate innovative technologies and people that have been instrumental in improving facility operations over the past year.
For the foreseeable future, our global economy will continue to rely on fossil fuels as our primary energy source. Because this affects every aspect of the supply chain, the oil and gas sector will continue to be a target for cyber attacks from state and non-state actors that are looking to cripple infrastructure, hold systems for ransom or infiltrate to gain access to new technologies.
