China has been driving the world oil markets for the last few years, and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Economic growth and rising car ownership have spurred demand for crude and refined products. To satisfy its increasing appetite for oil, China has been building strategic relationships with Russia and Central Asian countries. But the relationships between them are extremely complex.
The energy relationship between Moscow, Astana and Beijing will become increasingly important as oil demand grows. A thorough understanding of the relationships between China, Russia and central Asian nations is essential to anyone who is involved in energy trade between these countries.
Jointly organized by Argus Media and Jifeng Petroleum Consulting, the China-Russia-Central Asia Crude and Products Forum is expected to be attended by a wide international audience with strong support from major industry players. The conference will address the most critical issues affecting the Chinese, Russian and central Asian oil markets including:
• The complications and challenges of energy relations between China, Russia and central Asia
• The potential crude supply and export mechanisms of Russia and central Asia
• Russian M100 fuel oil supply and logistics infrastructure
• The impact of China’s independent refining sector on straight run fuel oil demand
• Pricing benchmarking and the implications for the China-Russia-central Asia supply chain
• Russian and Central Asian export transportation and infrastructure
• Cross border petroleum trading, distribution and pipeline transportation fees
• Regional railway transportation cooperation and emerging challenges
