Argus Webinar: A world in balance, or a world imbalance ?

Gasoline prices and demand were much higher than many anticipated during 2015, as the world responded to a low crude price environment. This in turn provided much needed support for Naphtha which may otherwise have struggled to find a home – but this is a situation that may not continue as demand for Naphtha and LPG in particular looks like it will not keep up with demand over the next few years.

With refineries focussing on upgrading projects in response to changes in bunker fuel specifications, and the petrochemical sector investing in feedstock flexibility, the refining sector is in for an interesting few years.  Changes to the crude slate, changes to demand profiles and investment in refining could dramatically change the landscape between now and 2020.
