In Japan? You can go to Argus Japan


The international crude and refined products markets are more dynamic than ever, with US crude exports adding to the action. Huge infrastructure development, ever-shifting economics and constantly changing logistics are all in play. And that was before Trump administration-led changes and Mexican energy reform stirred things up even more. With all these changes, supply chain considerations, market factors, and other key concerns, how can you ensure you are maximizing your margins and positioning your business for the future?

Attend the Argus Crude & Refined Products Exports conference to gain valuable insight into waterborne movements and new age market forces to better understand the dynamics of exports vs marketing crude and refined products domestically. 

Key topics include:
  • Refinery access and energy economics 
  • The intersection of energy and transportation for the Trump administration 
  • Onshore infrastructure and planned projects
  • Arbitrage and risk management 
  • Freight nomination and impacts on pricing
  • Upstream production and anticipated supply and pricing
