Report summary

We are forecasting refining margins in Asia to trend downwards in the next few years, driven by an oversupply in the refining system and slower oil demand growth. Heavy crude oil processing will be one of the key drivers for refiners to maintain their competitiveness. Refiners with the capability to process Basrah heavy will gain significantly from its discounted pricing.
