Overview of event

The Middle East is at the centre of recent developments in the global oil market. Production cuts have drawn down stocks, pushing up prices, while new refining capacity is changing the flows of crude and products. But concerns about recession in the west and China’s economic growth weigh on the market. Join us at our Kpler Insight Briefing as we help you assess the impact on crude, products and freight markets.
