Multi-Client Strategic Report

Publication date:March 2017
Item#: C01600

Flexible operations and technology innovations to meet changing crudes and shifting product demand

To prosper in currently unpredictable crude and fuel markets? Read our just new multi-client strategic report.

Once-considered a solution to the oil market rout beginning in mid-2014, the production cut agreement by OPEC and non-OPEC producers from Jan. to June 2017 is apparently falling apart. The primary reason is a fast recovery of rather resilient US shale plays. At the same time, fuel demand growth is lagging despite rising consumption in some parts of the world. With currently unpredictable political and economic conditions, the oil supply and demand imbalance remains and price volatility will prevail in the foreseeable future.

As a result, refinery oil traders and buyers will continue to shop for price-advantaged crudes. Purchases on the spot market are rewarding, but changing crude types more frequently and increased blending of different crudes pose many challenges for refineries. To name a few:

Therefore, this 800+page comprehensive study is written to help refining clients tackle many challenges and identify unique opportunities in the fast-changing, uncertain conditions so that they can maintain profitability, stay ahead of the competition in good and bad times, and sustain business in the long run.
