Ø Trump plans to launch a huge Offshore Oil Plan: blowout period of US crude oil production may come again, then how should the global oil market developed in 2018?
Ø The total allowed import volume of crude oil for non-state trade reached 142.42 million tons in 2018, increasing by 548.2 million tons compared with that of 2017, an increase of 62%. What changes will happen in 2018 and how to react?
Ø Since the implementation of On Expanding the Production & Use of Bio Fuel Ethanol and Promotion of the Use of Ethanol Gasoline, the policy has been good for the continuous fermentation of ethanol gasoline. How should gasoline and diesel market react?
Ø After more than three years of efforts and over seven months of formal preparation, the date of listing China’s crude oil futures is approaching. According to the sources, crude oil futures will be listed as early as the "two sessions" in 2018. Is that possible for product oil to be listed?
Ø Overproduction of gasoline spawned the emergence of high-end gasoline. Then how to build its own brand for independent refineries and stand in an invincible position in the industry?
Crude oil market in 2018: MOFCOM announced that the total allowed import volume of crude oil for non-state trade reached 142.42 million tons in 2018, exceeding 87.6 million tons of last year total volume by 62.6%.By the end of December, 13 additional independent refineries were granted a total of 27.92 million tons of import crude oil quotas. So the number of independent refineries in China that have officially obtained import crude oil quotas has increased to 32 and the total volume increased to 101.69 million tons.
Crude oil futures: according to the sources, crude oil futures will be listed as early as the "two sessions" in 2018. After more than three years of efforts and over seven months of formal preparation, will China's crude oil futures be listed on the market successfully?
Macro policy: the downstream transportation accounted for the highest proportion in the final consumption of product oil, of which, accounted for 50% of gasoline consumption and as high as 64% of diesel fuel. So the trends of this industry have a big impact on product oil. Recently, a heavy - pound policy on transportation was announced, that is, Ministry of Transportation issued "Opinions on Comprehensively and Deeply Promoting the Development of Green Transportation" on December 6th, which requires the number of new energy and clean energy vehicles in the transportation industry to reach 600,000;
Dynamic of domestic refineries: the first phase of Zhejiang Petrochemical Co., Ltd. -- 20 million tons / year is expected to be completed and put into production in end of 2018. 20 million tons / year of Dalian Hengli Petrochemical is expected to be completed and put into production in October 2018. In addition, Jiangsu Shenghong, Hebei Xinhua Union Petrochemical, Tangshan Xuyang and other large-scale refining and chemical integration projects are scheduled to be completed and put into production around 2020. However, with the production of these ten million tonnage refining projects, the pattern of domestic energy industry will change gradually. How should the independent refineries react in the process?
Alternative energy: the environmental protection in China is becoming more and more strict and new deals are constantly introduced – under the policies of comprehensive promotion of ethanol gasoline by 2020, double growth of the number of new energy vehicles and accelerated elimination of heavy-duty diesel vehicles, traditional energy sources may begin to enter the cold winter, and the lack of growth in demand for product oil in the future will remain the norm.
At present, the factors, such as the fluctuating of the international crude oil futures, the constant construction of large-scale refining and chemical projects, the injection of third party capital and etc, make the future of oil market look more changeable. Enmore invites you to gather in Shanghai on April 11th to 13th, 2018, to explore the hot topics as the macro policies of crude oil, gasoline & diesel, and blending materials, the development of the industry, new energy vehicles, alternative energy ethanol and brand-built of independent refineries. Let’s gather together with over 500 delegates in Shanghai at the beginning of the spring in 2018 to explore new opportunities for the petrochemical industry!
