Report summary

Many refiners continued to struggle with low margins for much of 2014 due to weak demand and surplus distillation capacity. Later in the year margins strengthened due to falling crude prices. We expect that margins will remain relatively strong in early 2015 but will weaken later as the surplus of crude is converted into a surplus of product. The recent strength in refining margins has provided a reprieve for some refiners but this reprieve could be only temporary.
