Belgium downstream oil long-term outlook 2015

Belgium downstream oil long-term outlook 2015

Report summary

The Belgian oil products market lies in the immediate supply area of the Antwerp/ Rotterdam/ Amsterdam (ARA) oil refining, trading and storage hub. Entry barriers are therefore low and access to product supply relatively unconstrained. Refined products can be sourced either from the Total and ExxonMobil refineries at Antwerp itself or moved into Belgium by barge from refineries located in the Netherlands at Rotterdam and Vlissingen. The Belgian oil market is mature across most sectors with little or no long-term oil demand growth anticipated. The fuel price and margin regime is underpinned by the government-run ‘Contrat Programme' maximum price formula and its retention has been pivotal to maintaining average fuel margins at relatively high  levels.
