The Chinese economy is now entering a more mature stage and as demand growth takes a back seat, industrial overcapacity has become a cause for concern, resulting in policy makers taking the following drastic measures:

  • Change in leadership
  • Reducing overcapacity
  • Destocking and deleveraging
  • Cost reduction and shoring up weak spots

These are the some of the political and economic turning points that are changing the dynamics of the Chinese oil market. ICIS recently produced a whitepaper providing a comprehensive review and analysis of the Chinese oil and petroleum markets, as well as the implications for supply and demand fundamentals. Our senior industry experts also discussed the competitive landscape of the Chinese markets and new energy investment opportunities that are emerging. Topics covered in the whitepaper include:

  • Changes in oil supply and demand
  • New oil consumption under a restructuring economy
  • Potential and development prospects of Chinese private companies including crude purchasing and refining by independent refineries
  • Changes in China’s downstream market
  • Investment opportunities in the country
  • Oil pricing and tax reforms and their impact on oil blending, substitution energy and the fuel quality of distillates
