Asian oil market is adjusting to an environment of lower oil prices. Low oil price does not translate to higher demand due to limited pass-through of cost savings, subsidy removal, higher government taxes and lower economic growth in Asia. Asian refiners are currently enjoying crude discounts and earning a high refining margin. However, margins will fall in the second half of 2015 due to the near-term weakness in product market fundamentals.
