Next few years will not be business-as-usual for global refiners. Changes in regulation and policies, threat from peak oil demand, shift in product demand patterns and new demand growth centres, rising appetite for petrochemical feedstock and refining overcapacity in main refining centres will all drive refiners to rethink the way they have operated in the past.
The presentation will broadly cover:
- Peak oil demand – Myth or reality?
- Knock on effects of rising US crude exports on global crude trade flows
- IMO's bunker fuel regulation: Smooth sailing or a rough ride
- Asian dilemma – Build refineries vs secure supply
- Refining and chemicals integration - a necessity, not a choice
