Argus East of Suez Products Conference

The balance of global oil consumption is moving away from industrialised countries to developing economies, which are growing faster and are more energy intensive.

Asia-Pacific has emerged as the demand centre of the oil world. But additions to supply suggest a growing overhang in oil products markets, such as transportation fuels gasoline, jet fuel and gasoil in particular. Increasing refinery capacity in India, China and the Mideast Gulf are set to trigger changes to established trade flows, storage and pricing.

The shale revolution in the US has turned the US into a significant products exporter. Tight oil, shale gas and natural gas liquids are already making an impact across energy markets in all regions.  Asia-Pacific will be an outlet for exporters of LPG and condensate, which will compete with naphtha supply from the Mideast Gulf.

  • China’s changing environmental specifications – the impact on gasoline and gasoil supply and demand
