Argus China and Global Oil will be back in Beijing on 30-31 March 2017

The global oil supply glut continues to take its toll on producers, but one of the most positive notes to emerge in 2016 has been the spike in China’s crude consumption. Further demand growth from independent refiners could help support imports next year.

Meanwhile, China’s domestic crude production fell by more than 280,000 b/d in 2016 and may shrink by the same degree next year — potentially boosting imports further. China is also expected to import more crude from the Americas, with Unipec already showing strong interest in US-origin crudes.

In Argus China and Global Oil 2017, the key topics of debate will include:

  • China’s market liberalization may raise the number of crude importers to more than 30 firms. How will import dynamics evolve?
  • As part of its diversification strategy, China is increasingly looking to the Americas for its future crude imports. What will be the impact on trade flows?
  • Opec continues to attempt to rebalance the market. Will this provide a silver bullet for the oil supply glut?
  • China’s pipelines, ports and storage tanks are quickly expanding, while investment in global infrastructure expansions is rising in anticipation of increasing oil flows. What opportunities are available?
  • US crude export deregulation, combined with Donald’s Trump's pro-drilling stance, may pave the way for more shipments of US oil to China. Unipec has already shown strong interest in US-origin crude. What about other buyers in China
