Europe downstream oil in brief: 2018 in review

Report summary

In this article, we have analysed the key themes that have materially impacted European retail fuel marketing during 2018. We review the market drivers and highlight the measures companies are adopting to protect themselves from a declining fuel market and the emerging energy transition. These include: how weaker fuel margins are changing the retail fuel landscape; the rise of automation and digitalisation at the forecourt; and the increasing pressure to move away from traditional fuels.
