How to maximize profit from changing market dynamics

  • S&P Global Platts annual European Refining Summit has earned its place as ‘the must attend’ event for downstream professionals. 

    Designed for Europe’s leading refiners, traders, petchems and biofuels producers, logistics and solution providers, and end users today, the event is now in its 12th year, with S&P GlobalPlatts presently sourcing 30 expert speakers to gather for frank discussion and unrivalled debate, including how to maximize profit from changing market dynamics.

    What to expect at our 2018 event:

  • Setting the scene for the European refining market today — Macroeconomics: update on the Trump presidency and Brexit, changing crude flow dynamics, and latest state of play for European refiners – supply and demand, prices and profit margins and consolidation movements
  • IMO 2020: Scrubbers vs refining investment, ensuring enough fuel and scrubbers, non-compliance threats and enforcement challenges — Latest on scrubber uptake rates and refineries investment in production facilities – is it up to the shipping or refining industry to find a solution? To what extent will there be non-compliance? Will there be enough 0.5%? Will there be enough scrubbers? Who will enforce all this?
  • Competitiveness of European refiners against the backdrop of climate change policy directives and government sanctions — What’s next for electrification of road transport?, European FQD and renewable blending mandates: implications of policy, evolution of energy prices and costs in Europe compared to competing regional markets, and impact of sanctions on Iran and Russia for the global oil industry
  • Oil products consumption - developments, challenges and opportunities for jet fuel, gasoline and diesel — After the diesel car scandal, is there still a future for the fuel in some countries? To what extent are gasoline car sales increasing? What can be done to address limited capacity of CEPS for jet fuel?
  • Shedding light on digitalization and the internet-of-things — What can blokchain, cobots, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and machine learning do for your business?
  • Global market developments and trade flows — Assessing competition from the US, Middle East, Russia, Africa, Asia and Latin America markets
  • Implications of recent and proposed M&As, and finance and investment developments, challenges and opportunities — Impacts of major M&As, and global investments in refining capacity on oil products supply and trade flows
  • Overview on the latest petrochemicals and oil storage developments — Petchems/refinery integration, feedstock pricing and increasing demand levels, and latest oil storage challenges and new opportunities
