Supply and Trading

 

The global refining sector is being shaped by a rebalancing of supply/demand forces, while oil demand is increasing because of rapid economic growth and urbanization. Greater pressures on the refining system are evident as feedstock costs and product flows are shifting. Certain refiners are gaining an economic edge while others remain geographically disadvantaged.  Competition for both crude oil and refined-product export markets will increase, as will the pressures on currently underperforming refiners to reduce utilization rates and/or be forced to close.
