Attend this free webinar on June 23 at 2:00-3:00 pm ET and listen as Tom Kloza, Global Head of Energy Analysis, OPIS By IHS Markit, provides highlights for the first half of 2021 and explains why the intersection of agricultural products, traditional fossil fuels, and an increasingly complicated regulatory backdrop will shape coming quarters and years.
Find out why the second half of 2021 may be one of the more uneven landscapes for fuel marketers in the 21st century!
Webinar topics include:
|A review of profitability and total return for second quarter gasoline and diesel and the “lumpiness” in demand restoration. Find out what regions and states are leaders and laggards in the COVID bounce-back.||RINsanity – it’s back. See what’s next for ethanol and biodiesel RINs and how might it impact import/export dynamics and refinery runs.|
|The entire legacy of hedging heating oil and how it’s been changed with a new infusion of uncertainty thanks to huge gaps between diesel and heating oil, despite the same specifications.||How an active hurricane season can influence fuels in the July through September period. Why might this year be particularly challenging for the portion of the distribution system that moves fuel from the refinery gate to the station?|
|What will be the consequences of the rush to build and operate Renewable Diesel plants? Why might this alter the economics for both RINs and the LCFS? And speaking of LCFS, why is this an acronym and a system that all US marketers need to understand. Beyond California, where is it likely to be very relevant?||Huge new refineries in China, the Middle East and Asia/Pacific countries will be getting commissioned in coming months. How might that impact the US West Coast, South America, and other countries?|
|Vacation season may be brisk for gasoline and jet fuel demand, but what lies ahead in the last third of 2021?||How might the few deals consummated in 2021 impact valuations at the refiner, terminal, and station level through the remainder of the year? And how might that consolidation impact market dynamics?|
|Whatever happened to IMO, Tier 3 Sulfur regulations, and benzene restrictions?||How might the titans of fossil fuel deal with more demand destruction if there is a third COVID wave?|
