The fight for survival?

The refining industry has been experiencing weak margins, low utilization rates, decimated demand and numerous supply chain issues due to the coronavirus pandemic. The IEA have said it will take years for the refining sector to fully recover with the market for refined products being smaller in 2021 than it was in 2015. Furthermore, refiners are facing considerable conundrums about how to implement technological advances, what is the future of the industry, what will the landscape of refineries across the globe look like and will the market see some certainty after a period of high volatility and rapid change.

However, an industry in flux also allows for an industry to embrace transformation and innovation while shaking off constraints and disruptions.

So ultimately what does the new normal hold for Asian refiners?

Join us at the Asia Refining Virtual Summit, March 4 2020, to discuss four key topic areas with industry leaders!

- Crude selection, optimization and buying patterns in Asia. The drive for positive margin territory.

- Case studies: China and India and the two different strategies employed to ramp up recovery

- The free-fall of the aviation industry

- Energy transition and the strive for net zero. Achieving refining excellence.

- Evolution of Middle East crude futures
