In Japan? You can go to Argus Japan



The Argus China and Global Oil 2018 will return to Beijing on 28-29 March. The conference will again feature large-scale participation from China’s independent refiners, as well as key state-controlled oil importers. This is an ideal platform to connect investors with decision makers in the oil sector.

OPEC’s production cuts have reduced crude supplies and helped increase market prices, even as US producers continue to boost investment in shale oil, cutting imports and freeing up more supplies for the global market. The prospect of an extension to OPEC’s output cuts will only add more uncertainty to the crude market.

This year’s Argus China and Global Oil 2018 will also discuss the opportunities created by China’s Belt and Road initiative. How will this massive project change crude trade flows?

Join us to hear how leading organizations are coping with uncertainties in the market, as well as potential opportunities and threats in what will undoubtedly be a challenging 2018.

Key Highlights:

  1. Belt and Road Initiative - What are the Implications for Countries Involved, and How will this Boost China’s Economic Influence on Regional and Global Level
  2. How will the Push for Cleaner Energy Affect China’s Crude Demand?
  3. Will Global Crude Demand Balance Out Increased Supply as the US Ramps up Crude Exports?
  4. China’s National Initiatives to Develop World-Class Refinery and Petrochemical Hubs
  5. Will China’s Market Liberalisation Continue to Increase the Number of Crude Importers and How Will Import Dynamics Evolve?
  6. The Role of Independent Refiners and How They are Changing China’s Oil & Gas Landscape
