Multi-Client Strategic Report Publication date:July 2012 Item#:C01200 The global refining business is pressing forward in a difficult operating environment in which only the best, most sophisticated refineries will be profitable. Complex refineries are considered the ones that can buy the cheapest feeds and convert them into the products the market wants using the most cost-effective processes in the near term with a long-term operational strategy. The cost factor is the key in maintaining profit margins.
Multi-Client Strategic Report Publication date:June 2011 Item#:C01100 At a time of volatile oil prices and crude supply uncertainty, many refiners around the world are again turning their attention to relatively less expensive, unconventional or opportunity crudes (opcrudes). Opcrudes generally include heavy sour grades, oilsand/bitumen, extra heavy oil, high TAN crudes, and oil shale. Refineries without a capability of handling opcrudes will lose out to the competition in the long term.
