Despite skyrocketing oil prices, Asia’s refining sector stays robust with capacity growth in China, India and West Asia. The world awaits Reliance’s new addition of a 580,000 bpd to its existing Jamnagar refinery to come on stream, a capacity (1.24 million barrels per day) representing almost half of the estimated global oil demand next year. With this and other announced new refining capacities coming on stream from the rest of Asia, will it ease the tightness in the global refining business or squeeze refining margins?

Global fuel demand is expected to remain buoyant and strong, as long-term outlook for refining margins is forecasted to stay rosy, especially for complex refiners. With tight product supplies and stringent specification, refiners re-engineer themselves; seeking new export routes, optimizing production performance and increasing process efficiency to maximize returns.
