The main talking points covered in the session included:

  • US crude export markets & fundamentals
  • Refinery runs
  • Specific flows to East Asia and China
  • Imports from a Chinese perspective
  • Freight implications
  • Tanker fundamentals
  • Looking to the future

 

Key Takeaways

Conor and Will outlined three key messages to take away from the webinar:

  • US crude fundamentals are shifting through the balance of the year likely to create challenges for exports.
  • The spike in US crude exports to China was primarily opportunistic and arbitrage-driven supported by favourable fundamentals.
  • There may be some unique opportunities given VLCC freight is likely to remain pressured going forward
