Asia and Middle East Base Oils Market Webinar
A look at current prices, key trends and the near-term base oils outlook

Access the recording and presentation slides of a webinar we held on 20 May 2015.The online seminar gives you in-depth information on Price movements and market developments in both Asian and Middle Eastern base oils markets, as well as a near-term outlook of what to expect over 2015.

Following the sudden drop of upstream crude prices in the second half of 2014 and the oversupply of group II base oils globally, both Asia and Middle East regions experienced a downward spiral of base oils spot prices.

As the market struggles to recover from the impact of the crude price drop and oversupply, market players are now faced with the following questions:

  • What is the near-term outlook for prices?
  • Will Asia and Middle East base oils prices be able to rebound to levels seen before crude oil values dropped?
  • How will supply and demand impact the correlation between group I and II prices going forward?

By downloading the presentation slides and recording, you will gain the answers to all the questions above.
