Watch: Are Asian oil refiners set for a second Golden Age?

Do you still remember the first Golden Age of Asian refining? In the early parts of last decade, China's strong oil demand coupled with a lack of refining capacity in the region led to strong refining margins. These days, we see healthy margins again with low crude prices and higher consumption of gasoline. In this video, Platts senior managing editor Jonathan Nonis examines whether or not some market observers are correct in saying that the second Golden Age for Asian refining has actually started, what could keep margins going and how a sharp rally crude oil prices could turn dampen the mood in the market.
