Global uncertainties and the strategic implications for US refiners


Global uncertainties and the strategic implications for US refiners

Report summary

US refiners have enjoyed strong refining margins over recent years because they have been able to monetise domestic crudes and export their refined product surplus.  Three factors – the evolving domestic crude supply, its high quality and its discounted price relative to international crudes - have broken the link between refining complexity and site net cash margins.
