8th Argus Middle East Oil Products Conference

The 8th Argus Middle East Oil Products Conference (formerly Argus Middle East Gulf and Indian Ocean oil Products Conference), to be held in Dubai on 23-24 October 2017, is the only platform in the region focused on the entire supply chain of traded products.

The event is designed exclusively for refiners, national oil companies and international oil firms, trading houses, shipping companies, brokerage firms, banks, and trading and risk management solution providers looking to gain insight into current market dynamics and to establish new business contacts.

With the looming IMO 2020 regulation and the market shift towards low-sulphur specifications, this year’s agenda focuses on Markets and Markers.

What major markers will we be discussing?

  • China’s proposed consumption taxes on the mixed aromatics market and its ripple effect on Asian and European producers and trading firms
  • Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, and Ivory Coast ban imports of high-sulphur diesel — shifts in trade flows?
  • Transition to the benchmark 10ppm sulphur gasoil assessment in Singapore and the Middle East from January 2018 — its impact on liquidity, pricing and 500ppm markets.
  • IMO 2020 regulation — how will freight rates, shipowners, trading firms and refiners be affected?
