Webinar - Middle East Refining

Webinar Overview

The Middle East region is responsible for the world’s second largest amount of primary refinery capacity additions through to 2030 (nearly 600 kb/d) after Asia Pacific (around 2.2 mmb/d of capacity additions).

At the same time, the region significantly suffers from a lack of access to and transparency in up-to-date data and analysis, in comparison to some other regions with more advanced economies. In fact, public data on Middle East product fundamentals, which are often used by the industry as source, are lacking either partially or in their entirety for some of the countries in this region. FGE has been physically present in the Middle East for more than three decades, with long-standing relationship with the NOCs that run the oil and gas business in the region. In Iraq and UAE, for example, FGE is actually the only show in town right now; and our Iran coverage is unparalleled in terms of quality and precision.

We invite you to register for our complimentary webinar, where our experts will present FGE's views on the Middle East refining and products markets. We will highlight major drivers that are currently impacting domestic/international markets and trade flows. In addition, we will be providing you with the latest insights on the region’s downstream oil market with FGE's views on refining projects and structural changes in the region’s product balances in the coming years.
