How refiners can thrive during the energy transition

Report summary

The energy transition is the decarbonisation of transport and stationary sectors and so represents a major threat to the viability of the refining industry. By 2035 around 15% to 20% of refining capacity could close in OECD countries, notably Europe and the US. After 2035, that trend will accelerate as demand declines for transportation fuels such as diesel and gasoline. However, there are various strategies by which refiners can not only survive, but thrive, during this transition.
