Gain a complete view of China’s oil and refining industry with the latest edition of our annual reports


China’s petroleum industry is under huge restructuring as the country now emerges as the world’s top crude oil importer, as well as the top gasoline and middle distillate exporter in Asia.

In line with this, Chinese independent refiners are becoming the key buying force in the global crude oil marketplace. Independent refiners have been a major contributor to China’s crude throughput growth so far in the year and they have grabbed a bigger share of the country’s oil market.

However, keeping up with China’s fast-moving oil and refining sector, which has limited transparency, may remain challenging. Will the strong Chinese appetite for imported crude continue in the coming years and how will independent refineries adapt with the increasingly competitive Chinese refinery industry? All these questions and more are answered in the latest edition of our suite of China-focused annual reports.
