The expert panel speaker are:

  • Viren Doshi, Senior Vice President & Head of Global Energy Chemicals & Utilities Practice, Booz & Co


Some of the issues the panel will discuss and provide insight on include:

  • Is there hope for the European refining sector?
  • How has the shale gas revolution in the US affected the international trade flow?
  • What are the implications of the market situation in China and can it be the answer to the current oversupply problems? What if China doesn’t perform as hoped, will there be a repeat of the situation in Australia?
  • How will export refineries in the Middle East affect the industry as a whole and how sustainable will they be? With Asia – the biggest importer – investing in CTL technologies, what will this mean for the future of export refineries?
  • How fast can Latin America invest and build to meet the growing domestic demand and, for how long will their shortfall in capacity offer an opportunity to the US?
  • What will the refining industry of the future look like?
