Full Description

 

ABSTRACT of Presentation

 

Exports of refined products have increased by 270% in the past 9 years as the domestic consumption of refined crude products has declined in recent years and domestic crude production has increased.

This presentation will provide an overview of:

  • Crude production/imports/price differentials and their implication
  • US shale oil and gas as a game changer
  • Refining market dynamics
  • Refining operations
  • Refined product use and exports
  • Petroleum storage analysis
  • Crude transportation
  • Financial analysis
  • Refinery to terminal conversion

Substantial investments in downstream processing were made in processing before the U.S. recent light crude production boom resulting in US refiners being well positioned to process a broad range of crudes.  This refining flexibility has sustained export opportunities and profitability.
