This year’s UN climate change conference Cop 27 will take place in Sharm-el-Sheik, Egypt, from 7-18 November 2022. Argus provides key insight into the developments and discussions in the run up to Cop 27, shining a light on how they will affect the global energy and commodity markets.
As the most consumed refined product in Europe, diesel is a fundamental source of road fuel. But without sufficient local refining capacity to cover demand, the region is dependent on imports of this critical product. These trade flows have changed dramatically since the start of 2022 as Europe rejects Russian-origin oil and turns to long-range cargoes from other sources. This ‘new normal’ requires new price benchmarks for the European diesel market.
As more global carbon reduction mandates come online, airlines will look to fulfill their environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) requirements with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). SAF is the only solution for airlines to fly more sustainably, electrification is not yet a solution and we are probably decades away from that being a reality if at all.

US sanctions on Venezuela’s national oil company PdV, first imposed on 28 January 2019, cast another layer of geopolitical uncertainty onto the international oil market. The sanctions take effect in stages, gradually intensifying their impact on the Opec country’s imports and exports, and the sanctions rollout and partial unwinding of commercial ties will help to shape near-term market dynamics, with longer-term implications for policy and investment. Follow along with Argus as we deliver the latest news and market analysis on this story.
