The rapidly increasing production of North American crude oil has led Bloomberg to speculate the US will become the worlds largest producer by 2015.

This exponential growth of light shale crude, the burgeoning Canadian heavy crude production, pipeline projects and the development of the crude by rail network has led to a so called 'golden age of refining'. The advancement of discounted light crude, however, has come against a legacy of refineries configured for heavy oil production.

For refineries to maximize profitability and fully capitalize on these production shifts, current strategies must be adapted. Whether through investment in reconfiguration or adjusting to accommodate incoming crude grades through blending, refiners must re-examine their supply outlook.

On top of this, with existing export regulation giving US refineries uncontested access to advantaged crude, it is now more important than ever for refiners to evaluate refined product differentials and global market access when selecting different crudes. Selection of crude grades is now determined not only by what advantaged crude is available, but by the product yields the grades can provide.

In depth assessment of current and upcoming North American crude grades being produced, as well as the developing supply infrastructure network, is necessary to determine the optimal supply strategy to maximize refinery netback. Furthermore, analysis of international opportunities for the developing US product export market for numerous crude products must be considered when evaluating the business case for downstream investment.

The Refinery Crude Slates Strategy Summit 2014 held on the 29th and 30th of April at The Westin Galleria Houston, Texas, will address these issues and more, providing unique insights vital to maximizing downstream profitability. As the first ever North American summit examining downstream crude strategy in the wake of enormous production shifts, the forum will scrutinize the relative economics of crude blending against refinery retooling, developing supply sources and global market opportunities for refined product exports.

  • SAVE $400 Dear Colleague, Refinery Crude Slate Strategies 2014 is the first refinery led conference to evaluate strategies to adapt to the increase in North American crude production to maximize netbacks from new product opportunities. The growth of light shale crude in the United States, coupled with the increasing availability of discounted heavy Canadian crude, has vastly increased North American refinery access to advantaged crude. Against a legacy of crude oil imports, domestic North American production has increased to a rate whereby the US is anticipated to become the largest oil producer in the world by 2015. In order for refineries to take advantage of the increase in light crude production, in particular those configured for heavy crude imports, supply and marketing strategies, as well as existing downstream infrastructure and complexity, must be re-evaluated to ensure profitability is maximized. Furthermore, with refined product markets ultimately determining the profitability of refinery crude supply, in depth analysis of global destinations for specific products must be undertaken, including gasoline, diesel, lubricants and more. With domestic and international markets ultimately determining the netback for new crude supply, this assessment is integral to developing comprehensive refining strategy. The Refinery Crude Slate Strategies 2014 will address these issues and more. Drawing on ABC’s experience in downstream led crude supply chain initiatives, the summit will provide comprehensive analysis of crude supply dynamics through production forecasts, blending strategies, pipeline developments, regional refinery feedstock shifts and downstream reconfigurations. On top of this, in depth analysis of global markets for specific refined products will be undertaken, as well as projecting crude pricing differentials, the economics of crude exports and the future regulatory environment. Please look through the enclosed agenda and visit www.refinery-crude-slates-2014.com for the fastest way to register. We look forwards to welcoming you to Houston in April, Register By Friday JANUARY 31, 2014 5 REASON TO ATTEND 1 The only conference bringing together the entire crude value chain to provide detailed examination of downstream strategies to capitalize on the shifts in supply 2 In depth analysis of regional crude supply developments, including production forecasts for emerging and existing plays, transportation infrastructure and refinery complexity 3 Evaluation of specific refined product markets, including gasoline, distillates, lubricants, naphtha and more to scrutinize global export opportunities 4 Assessment of the economics for blending and refinery retooling to cost-effectively maximize profitability from advantaged crude sources 5 Expert insights into crude pricing differentials, specialty Kind Regards, export projects and the potential The Crude Marketing Team economics for us crude exports Venue Information: The Summit Will Be Held At: The Westin Galleria Houston Woodway Room, Fourth Floor 5060 West Alabama Houston, Texas, 77056 United States Phone: (713) 960-8100 Web: Please click here www.refinery-crude-slates-2014.com (1) 800 721 3915 info@american-business-conferences.com
