6th China Petroleum & Gas Insiders Briefing (CPGI 2013)
June 13-14, 2013
Venue: The Raffles Hotel, Singapore
After registering the weakest growth last year since the mid-2000s, China's oil demand is poised to grow faster again in 2013. In Asia, China is still the leader in regional oil demand growth. As the second largest oil-consuming country in the world, China's petroleum product demand (including direct use of crude oil) is expected to reach 10.5 mmb/d in 2013. Can China sustain the growth of oil demand though 2015 and beyond? China's crude imports averaged 5.4 mmb/d in 2012 and are likely to hit some 6 mmb/d in 2013. Against the backdrop of rising demand for crude oil, how soon will China surpas the US in becoming the largest crude oil importer in the world?
The China Petroleum and Gas briefing (CPGI) provides extensive coverage of China’s oil and gas markets dynamics in the Asia Pacific regional and global contexts with a special emphasis on downstream refining, the future outlook of oil demand, supply, and trade, natural gas sector developments, LNG imports, and other key oil and gas issues in China.
CPGI will be highly relevant for all senior management, business developers, traders and analysts, corporate/strategic planners, investment bank project managers and executives responsible for China markets.

20th Annual Middle East Petroleum Insiders Briefing (MPI 2013)
Date: April 20-21, 2013 Venue: Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi
Middle East oil production continues to dominate the global oil market, but the impact on US oil production will create material change in the market. Already oil and condensate production associated with the shale gas revolution is almost two million barrels per day. This has had profound effects on the US market, and like ripples on a pond, the impact is spreading. Product supply patterns in the Atlantic Basin are changing and increasingly it is having an impact on oil supply arrangements. As oil production continues to rise, and shale gas related produc-tion occurs elsewhere in the world, OPEC production will be squeezed. What will be the impact on global trade and geopolitics as the US is increasingly delinked from ME supply? Simultaneously, Iraqi production and NGL pro-duction is rising. The portion supplied by traditional OPEC supply is shrinking. How will this play out? What will be the consequences if the “call” on Saudi falls? Concurrent with the changes in the oil market will be the conse-quence of the massive refinery investment programs of ME producers. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE will all commission world-scale refineries in their home countries plus have joint venture positions in Asian-based refin-eries. The impact on the supply of heavy oil into the market and change in refined product marketing arrange-ments will be pronounced.
Now in its 20th year, the annual Middle East Petroleum Insiders briefing offers authoritative and insightful analy-sis regarding the outlook for this crucial region. It will be an opportunity to hear from FGE personnel and discuss issues that are fundamental to how the oil markets evolve with industry leaders.

FGE is pleased to announce our upcoming Multi-Client Study, Crude Oil Supply and International Trade Outlook.
This report provides detailed demand/supply forecasts and trade flows for 2010-2020, by region and quality. Given the magnitude of new developments in both the U.S.A and Canada, and the impact on global trade flows, these countries are analyzed individually. The impact on backed-out imports by quality, adn resulting change in other inter-regional flows is analyzed and discussed in detail.
Key Features and Scope of our Study
Detailed projections of crude oil/NGL production by country.
Quality change issues - sulphur and gravity.
The evolving demand side - refinery capacity expansions & closures.
The conundrum of surplus light crudes in the West vs. incremental heavy crude demand in the East.
How shale liquids are transforming the US crude oil balance and the international ramifications.
Implications for trade flows and price differentials.
Key Reading For
National Oil Companies and Governments
Oil Majors, Producers
Crude and Product Traders and Energy Investors
Petroleum Economists and Planners
