Future of Global Refining Industry to 2015 - Benefiting From National Oil Companies' Growth22 Apr 2010 • by Natalie Aster
The global refining capacity is expected to grow from 4,513 MMTPA in 2009 to 5,395 MMTPA in 2015 at an AAGR of 2.98% as compared to 1.56% growth between 2000 and 2009.
With low petroleum product demand and declining falling refinery margins forcing private, international oil companies to reduce or cancel investments in the refining business, national oil companies are going ahead with their refinery projects with long-term strategic objectives.
Leveraging on their strong cash reserves and strong government support, most national oil companies are adding refining capacities, either to cater to domestic refined products demand or to transform their countries into global refining hubs. Given the regulatory constraints in building Greenfield refineries in North America and Europe, the Middle East has the potential to become a major petroleum product supplier to these regions.
