ICIS has launched the 2015 version of the World Energy and Refining Annual Study.

Recent developments, such as the sharp drop in crude prices, have shaken the energy industry and downstream markets and created uncertainty among energy and petrochemical players.

The World Energy and Refining Annual Study provides an in-depth review of developments in global energy and is supported by data from the ICIS Supply and Demand Database. In addition, it offers extensive analysis of the industry and reliable forecasts for the next decade, in order to allow industry players to develop robust strategies and conduct effective scenario planning for the future.

“It's been an eventful year for global energy markets, with developments such as China's slowdown and the crude oil crash causing havoc for industry players worldwide. As uncertainty about the short- and long-term impact of these events prevails, the World Energy and Refining Annual Study is an essential resource, designed to give you clarity on the outlook for key regions, commodities, and downstream markets,” commented Stefano Zehnder, Senior Consultant Global Refining & Petrochemical Feedstocks, Annual Consulting.

The new World Energy and Refining Annual Study from ICIS includes historical and forecast data from 2005 to 2030, alongside in-depth analysis of the key energy, oil and refining products traded globally, including the naphtha balances - the most important feedstock for the petrochemical industry. The study includes:

  • Current, historical and forecast data (2005-2030).
  • Regional surpluses and deficits for the important refining streams.
  • NGLs and shale gas positons as they change between 2005 and 2030.
  • Inter-regional trade and balances for major oil products including naphtha.
  • Energy requirement forecasts, broken down by fuel source and region (up to 2030).
  • Analysis of the impact of energy developments on downstream markets.
  • Global price scenarios for crude oil, naphtha and other key oil products.
