  • With IMO 2020 clearly on the horizon, the oil market is bracing for change but so many questions remain unanswered. What impact will the regulations have on crude differentials? How will refineries optimize production to meet demand and maintain margins? How are end-users mitigating risk and ensuring oil supply?

  • Additionally the market is dealing with the knock-on effects from sanctions, trade wars, and divisive oil policies. How will these play out in the long-term and what does it mean for the industry?

  • Join us at the 35th Annual Asia Pacific Petroleum Conference on September 9-11, 2019, in Singapore to hear from industry leaders about how they are preparing to weather the storm in turbulent times.

  • Last year’s groundbreaking conference featured 60 speakers across 30 presentations and five panels, with a total of more than 530+ senior delegates in attendance!
