  Held in conjunction with the MPGC Week Events 2022

What is the outlook for the Middle East’s upstream and downstream sectors? Will planned JV investment in refineries abroad, in demand centres, survive this storm? How will the Middle East’s crude and products export markets fare in this environment? What is the expected outlook for Chinese crude imports and products exports? When will Iran exports return and at what level? Looking beyond the hype, how will the push for carbon neutrality really impact the industry? These issues will all be addressed at the 28th Middle East Petroleum Insiders Briefing.

This year’s event will focus on the new set of dynamics in the global oil market in a low oil price environment, assessing the ongoing OPEC+ plans to manage price/supply while the world deals with COVID-19, with more than a year of data points in terms of how government policies and industry responses impact supply and demand in the future. Both upstream and downstream will be covered, providing detailed regional perspectives on production, oil demand, refining capacity and utilization, with the implications for the Middle East’s role in the rapidly changing landscape of international products trade.

  • Middle East Refining Landscape
  • FGE’s Oil Market Outlook
