Middle East-Asia Oil Trade & Pricing will be held on 25 August 2020 in 4 Modules from 12:15pm to 7:15pm


Oil trade between the Middle East & Asia is the world’s largest and most important single inter-regional trade flow of crude oil. Asia’s four largest oil consumers, China, India, Japan & South Korea, secure up to half their crude requirements from the Middle East and, as reported by the US Energy Information Administration, an estimated 76% of 17.3 million barrels per day of crude and condensate that flowed through the Straits of Hormuz in 2018 were bound for Asia

This 1-day course will focus on the pricing of Middle East crude oil in Asia, analysing:-

  • How Middle East national oil companies set their official prices for Asian Markets
  • How different crude oil types are valued using refinery models
  • How Asian crude oil markets work, exploring the role of quality, timing and location in determining crude oil competitive values
