Key market insights from Innovation Series London

We have seen that motor fuels, as shown by Vortexa oil demand indicators, demonstrate a strong performance. Nevertheless, the Pacific Basin has been recently leaving the Atlantic Basic far behind. Hence, we underscore a new growth belt in terms of motor fuel imports and question both excessively optimistic and pessimistic outlooks on China’s oil demand.

After this, we discussed the global refining activity and how the traditional OECD refiners suffer from five key challenges. Historically sizzling-hot refinery margins have not been dampened by even record product exports, entailing a constructive outlook for the remainder of the year.

With an outlook and insights on key clean product trade flows, we also discussed the important role of refining start-ups and maintenance. The reshuffling of flows is in the position to go on, with the South Atlantic region being a crucial ‘battlefield’.

We concluded the event with an outlook on the growing realm and power of data, supporting physical and financial trading and its forecasted change in the future.
