9th Annual Middle Distillates Conference

Antwerp, Belgium
Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel

Last Chance To Register - Only Three Weeks To Go!

  • The only middle distillates focused event in the world - Platts 9th Annual Middle Distillates conference will provide an unrivalled opportunity to keep up to date, debate the issues and build long term connections with fellow attendees.

    In the final year to prepare for 2020, the car market still in aftershock from ‘Dieselgate’ and heating fuel turning greener, we assess the outlook for Middle Distillates demand, the potential supply available after refinery upgrades and the challenges ahead to ensure demand stays strong with polices switching focus to the removal of greenhouse gases.

    What to expect:

  • Big picture for oil regionally and globally – Latest macroeconomic developments, global oil fundamentals, when will we reach peak oil demand?
  • Global distillate market landscape, flows, trends and developments in 2019 and beyond – what can we expect for distillate demand going forward?
  • International perspectives: Challenges, opportunities – Look outside of Europe to the Middle East, American and Asian markets, are trade flows evolving?
